Enjoy the Game

Introduction to Enjoy The Game

‘Enjoy the Game’ is a game-wide campaign, building on the success of the sport’s original Respect campaign which was launched by the RFL in 2005.

While Enjoy the Game will continue to stress the importance of behaving with Respect at all levels of the game, there will be a fresh emphasis on the positive - promoting positive environments throughout Rugby League.


Whether it’s playing a junior or amateur league game, or watching on the terraces at a Super League or Challenge Cup fixture, we want to make the whole of Rugby League a positive and enjoyable game, in which we can all enjoy our role.

In 2018 we carried out a review in the 12-18 Age Group, and also conducted online surveys of the Open Age game. We wanted to listen and understand which areas have the biggest impact on participation in Rugby League. The feedback highlighted touchline behaviour as an area which requires attention.

We want to sustain positive surroundings to create fun, safe and inclusive environments for all players, spectators, match officials, volunteers and coaches involved in Rugby League.

How we will achieve this

  • We will be rolling out ‘Enjoy the Game’ education packages and workshops to community and professional clubs, coaches, parents and volunteers (including Touchline Managers).

    This will promote and show how positive behaviour can improve performance and enjoyment on and off the field.
  • Clubs will also be provided with marketing materials to emphasise the campaign to all visitors of their club.

  • If you're a club, coach or parent who would like to learn more about the 'Enjoy the Game' campaign, or would like additional marketing content for your club, please contact us.
