FOUNDATION SCORE NEW FANS
Whilst the Foundation are instantaneously seen as a provider of quality Rugby League coaching and development, we also deliver a wide range of Sports to School’s and projects alike. Working alongside Featherstone Rovers, increasing attendances at the first team home games has been high on the agenda for our organisation. Saturday 19th May saw the Rovers entertain top 4 rivals, Leigh Centurions. Whilst the Rovers went down to a disappointing loss, the Foundation’s effort was a huge success with over 300 parents and children from junior Football clubs in attendance from as far as Howden, East Yorks – the majority had never watched a Rugby League game live.
Community Manager, Jamie Cording added, “We as an organisation work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure we can facilitate an enjoyable experience for anyone we invite to take part in our pre-match activity. This game was a target for something ‘different’ and as a direct link to the upcoming World Cup. The day was a huge success and we had glowing reports from the persons attending. Many of them are now adopted Rovers fans and they even had a nosey around the club superstore! Aside from this, we also invited hundreds of children from our local School’s to come along and enjoy a great spectacle of Rugby League. Whilst the loss was disappointing, we take comfort from the positive experience we were able to enable to the local community. It is important to know that we do not just entertain Community Rugby League clubs, we are open to inviting any teams, sports, groups that are looking for a great day out!”
