To launch a professional Rugby League club in New York playing transatlantic games in New York, the United Kingdom and Europe while being affiliated to the Rugby Football League.
By extending the transatlantic model to New York, a truly dynamic and bucket-list tourist destination, we are confident that this will spark the imagination of the UK crowds and bring an even greater appeal and potential to Rugby League. The New York market will enhance the portfolio of the sport, opening up access to a new multi-billion dollar marketplace, endorsing Rugby League as an ambitious, multi-cultural, international sport at the forefront of people’s minds.
We want to grow the sport of Rugby League in North America, growing the pool of players and ultimately increasing the chances of the USA national team of winning in international competitions.
“To deliver a competition winning team that will aid the USA national team and grow Rugby League on and off the field across the New York metropolitan area, eventually delivering a youth programme that creates a pathway into the first team and beyond.”
