  Premier League Broadcasting Deal - SD Statement

Supporters Direct acknowledges yesterday’s Premier League broadcasting deal agreed with Sky and BT Sport, which is clearly a major achievement.

Having such a large increase in income will undoubtedly lead to calls from across the game to increase significantly the money redistributed to the grassroots, to other clubs not in receipt of parachute payments, and other levels of the game. We remain convinced that this is the right response, though there now needs to be further debate about the size, manner and mechanism of the redistribution.

  SD RL Shield falls victim to frozen pitch

The Rochdale Hornets vs Hunslet Hawks Supporters Direct shield clash due last Sunday (8th February) for the second year running, fell foul of the weather.

Due to the severe freezing weather conditions experienced over the last week and following a pitch inspection today, the decision was taken that the fixture scheduled at Spotland was cancelled due to a frozen pitch.
