WAKEFIELD Trinity Wildcats’s Club 1873 has surpassed its target of recruiting 1,873 new members.
A statement issued by the club said: “Since launching the scheme in June, the club has been inundated with fans joining and showing their support to the club.
“We are aware that some fans are concerned that membership to this scheme won’t be counted in the 5,000 required by the RFL as part of the licensing process.
“However we can confirm that the membership will count as part of the criteria.”
Blake Solly, RFL compliance manager said: “For the current round of licensing, the number of season ticket holders a club has is a criteria in the assessment of any application.
“However as clubs move to more flexible membership and season ticket arrangements in order to grow their supporter base, this criteria will be reviewed and amended to ensure that licensing keeps pace with the initiatives of our clubs.”
