Super League sponsors Brut are looking to find the ultimate rugby league fan who has served their community in the BRUT Fan of Pride campaign.

The campaign is running across all 14 Super League teams, with each crowning their own Fan of Pride.

The Wakefield Wildcats winner - chosen by public vote - will go forward to represent their club in the national competition.

Brut are aiming to celebrate the Super League fan and each club’s community, highlighting the importance of the fans, the fantastic atmosphere they create and the role they have in the local area.

Nominations close at midnight on Sunday and a shortlist of Wildcats entries will be chosen by a panel of judges, including Wakefield player Richard Mathers.

The full-back is ambassador because he embodies the values represented by the Brut Fan of Pride Award.

Mathers raises money for St. Gemma’s Hospice in Leeds, which supports people with terminal illnesses, and has also recently joined the Forty-20 Yorkshire Men’s League committee in a part-ambassadorial role - aiming to publicise the league and raise awareness for the clubs that do a vital job in their communities.

Anyone can enter, with the deadline at midnight on Sunday and a final shortlist being announced Father’s Day, Sunday June 16.

Mathers will sit on a panel to help select the Wildcats Fan of Pride shortlist.

Brut’s Eoin Mullen said: “As a proud partner of the Super League Brut recognises the tight-knit nature of the communities and the loyal fans that support the 14 clubs. Through Fan of Pride we will celebrate the fans – those who not only support their team, but give back in their area.

“The Brut Fan of Pride winners will receive a fantastic range of prizes including Super League season tickets, a money-can’t-buy-experience to go behind the scenes with a club of their choice, an invitation to the end of season Super League Man of Steel Awards and, of course, a range of fantastic BRUT product.”
