National Lottery partners with Rugby Football League

The British National Lottery has agreed to become an official partner of the English Rugby Football League (RFL) and Women’s and Girls’ Rugby League.

Under the arrangement, National Lottery branding will feature across the sport’s premier men’s and women’s fixtures in England, while National Lottery players will have the chance to win a range of rugby league prizes such as tickets and VIP experiences.

The National Lottery will also serve as title partner for the England Women Rugby League Mid-Season International with Wales on 25 June.

Nigel Railton, chief executive of National Lottery operator Camelot, added: “Supporting sports has always been part of the mission of the National Lottery and this inventive partnership will undoubtedly make a difference.
