The Rugby League Business Network brings together individuals who are passionate about rugby league to create opportunities for people to make connections and enjoy exclusive offers, opportunities or experiences for personal or professional use.


  • To create a network of executives who enjoy rugby league
  • To facilitate meetings between like-minded individuals for the purpose of business and professional development
  • To work with clubs, international teams and governing bodies to create money-can’t-buy experiences
  • To provide opportunities for rugby players to network and gain experience outside the sport
  • To generate revenue and opportunities for rugby league


Members are the network and the network exists for the members.  The main benefits of membership are:

  • Regular networking opportunities at rugby league events
  • Access to bespoke services, either organisational or personal
  • Exclusive rugby league events, experiences and opportunities for personal or corporate use.
