RFL Statement - Widnes Vikings

RFL Statement - Widnes Vikings

In recent weeks, the club have kept the Rugby Football League updated on the situation as it has developed and fully recognises how disappointing it is for all involved that it has reached this position.

The club has played a significant role both in the history of the sport and also that of the town, and having spoken to many of the stakeholders involved over this period, we are well aware of the level of goodwill and support which still exists for the Vikings.

Following the latest development, the RFL will now seek to work alongside those stakeholders in order to try and find a solution which guarantees the future of the club.

The RFL, in conjunction with Rugby League Cares, are in dialogue with players and staff and will continue to provide welfare support and advice.
