Rugby Football League to report £2m loss for 2017
The Rugby Football League will report losses of £2.09m for 2017.
They said that a loss was “budgeted for” in a year without any home international fixtures, along with sizeable investment in infrastructure and the international set-up.
England lost to Australia in the final of the 2017 World Cup.
The RFL said that the autumn Test series against New Zealand and “improved commercial deals” should see them record a surplus in 2018.
