Between 40 and 50 local businesses will attend the launch of the latest Halifax RLFC commercial initiative - its very own business and networking club.

“Whilst there are many business groups meeting regularly around the area, this one is different,” said commercial director Chris Murgatroyd. “It’s firmly aimed at our sponsors and business partners and is as much a social group as a networking organisation.”

Members gain their free membership when they become sponsors of the club, and will be invited to eight meetings a year each featuring a guest from the world of sports, entertainment or business plus a meal and the opportunity to meet ‘Fax players, coaches and directors, with head coach Richard Marshall (pictured) the speaker at the launch event.

The launch takes place at a luncheon in the Harvey’s Banqueting Suite at The Shay Stadium on Friday, November 4. Further details are available from chris.murgatroyd@halifaxrlfc.co.uk.
