As part of their President’s Club package, the Trust will place members into prize draws, with winners being selected to take part in exclusive Trust events, as well as for tickets in the 1873 Lounge throughout the remainder of 2023, as well as the 2024 season.

Paul King, Managing Director of Salford Red Devils said;

“The Supporters Trust are a vital part of this Club and it feels very appropriate that their pledge was amongst those that took us over the initial target of £250,000. A sincere thank you to those members of the Trust who have voted to support the campaign, as well as those that have contributed themselves.” 

Shirley Bradshaw, Chair of Salford RLFC Supporters’ Trust said;

“We couldn’t be happier to support the Reds Rise Together campaign after our members voted overwhelmingly to do so. We are so pleased to be able to do this, and we’ll continue to do all that we can to support this wonderful club of ours.”

REDS RISE TOGETHER CAMPAIGN SURPASSES £250,000

Salford Red Devils today announce that the initial target of £250,000 has been raised through the Reds Rise Together campaign – the community share offer that will see the club undertake the most radical change to ownership seen in elite rugby league to date.

There have been almost 1000 unique pledges in support and with 6 days left before the Crowdfunder campaign closes, surpassing the initial target presents an opportunity to reach towards the upper targets set by the Club.

Paul King, Managing Director of Salford Red Devils said;                   

“Obviously, this is a special moment. Our initial target has been surpassed with time left on the clock, and so firstly can I just say ‘thank you’ to our new owners and those supporting the campaign’.

“At our event last week, we spoke about what this means for our sport, reaffirmed the club vision, and heard about what this could mean for the immediate community within the City of Salford. Having spoken with so many people since, you can really feel the positivity currently emanating from the campaign, and that has translated directly to the rising number over the last week.

“We have almost 1000 new commercial sales staff, 1000 new ticketing staff, 1000 of the most vocal advocates we could wish for. All together, we’re taking this club in a new direction.

“We’re one week on from our event at the Stadium, and less than one week to go before the Crowdfunder project closes, and so the message now is clear: join us – let’s bring in as many people as possible to be a part of our special Club.

“Let’s keep this momentum going, reach towards our upper targets, and close out strongly. We’re doing something different here, we’re making history, and most importantly we’re doing it together.”

What is the campaign?

‘Reds Rise Together’ is a community share offer which allows an individual to purchase a share in the club’s holding company – now a Community Benefit Society (CBS) – entitling them to a vote and eligibility to stand for election to the CBS board. Along with a host of other benefits, the overriding benefit is a collective one, meaning that together, we can take better control over the future of our club and continue to add meaningful value to our communities.

Why are we doing it?

In the first instance, we are doing this to become the northern hemisphere’s first elite rugby league club that is truly community-owned and one that gives every member a voice – making history in the process. There are also further key reasons:

> Maintain as competitive a playing squad as possible that competes at the highest level.

> To unite our growing community behind a common-cause.

> Fulfil IMG criteria ensuring Category A status within the top-flight of Super League through high level Commercial and Marketing growth.

How can you get involved?

It’s simple: buy a share and/or share the message far and wide!

£200K HAS BEEN RAISED IN SUPPORT OF THE REDS RISE TOGETHER CAMPAIGN

Salford Red Devils today announce that over £200,000 has been raised through the Reds Rise Together campaign.

Over 750 people have pledged in support of the campaign, which will see the club become the first elite Rugby League club in the northern hemisphere to become wholly community owned.

Paul King, Managing Director of Salford Red Devils said: “Reaching £200k is a significant milestone and a strong position to be in at this point in the campaign.

“There’s been incredible positivity since our event on Tuesday evening, going from around £185k to surpassing £200k.

“I mentioned at the event, and I’ve said it before, but I cannot recommend enough that people take a look at the comments from people on the Crowdfunder page who have pledged their support. The passion and love people have for this club is so clear to see.

“To those people who have supported so far, firstly thank you. Secondly, let’s keep going, keep sharing the message and telling those we know about the special club we love.

“To those who are yet to pledge, please consider doing so. Take a read of the business plan, read the prospectus, and think about your own reasons why you might want to become involved.

“We really are making history together.”

2024 SHIRT TO COMMEMORATE REDS RISE TOGETHER OWNERS

We are delighted to announce that our 2024 third kit will feature the names of each shareholder who has supported the Reds Rise Together campaign.

Our community share offer – that will see the club transition into the first elite rugby league club in the northern hemisphere to become a truly and legally community owned club – has raised over £160,000 since the campaign launched in late April.

The names of those who have already pledged their support of the Reds Rise Together campaign, along with any of those who become involved prior to the close of the campaign on June 5th, will each have their name woven into the fabric of next season’s shirt.

Managing Director, Paul King has said: “We’re delighted to commemorate the remarkable support of our owners by announcing that one of our playing shirts next season will feature each and every one of their names.”

“There have been some wonderful stories shared by our new owners that anyone can read through on the Crowdfunder page – and I’d implore everyone to do so – so there’s a sense of immense pride that these names will now be woven into the fabric of the club.

“Community is the very essence of what we’re doing here and the story of those who supported Reds Rise Together will now forever be a part of our club’s great history.

“Our thanks once again to those who have already supported this special campaign!”

If you are a supporter of the campaign who does not wish to have their name feature on next year’s shirt, please email owners@salfordreddevils.net with the subject ‘2024 SHIRT’.

If you too would like to be a part of history, you can do so by buying your share HERE.

CLUB STATEMENT

Salford Red Devils would like to clarify the position regarding the recent announcement of support from the Salford Credit Union (SCU).

Since the launch of ‘Reds Rise Together’, over 600 people have backed the campaign and the club in its efforts to become the first elite community-owned rugby league club, raising over £160,000 in the process.

Throughout these first weeks of the campaign, supporters have provided feedback and suggestions as to how the Club could make the campaign more widely accessible and we have been eagerly listening.

One frequent request was to provide a direct debit option through which supporters could support the campaign and make monthly payments in the process. As we are utilising the Crowdfunder platform over a 6-week project, with payment required upfront, a reoccurring direct debit option was not possible.

In pursuit of providing supporters with a solution whereby they would be able to make the full payment immediately, the Salford Credit Union provided an alternative option to a traditional direct debit scheme.

Salford Credit Union is a local not-for-profit organisation that will only provide finance following satisfactory credit-check and affordability assessments and will decline applications where necessary. The SCU also allows those wishing to take up the option of the SCU ownership offer the ability to choose the loan terms most appropriate to them. The Club encourage only those willing and able to do so to utilise the SCU ownership offer.

We will continue to do what we can to make involvement as accessible as possible without compromising the remarkable support of those already making history with us and remain committed to operating with transparency and honesty throughout so to ensure motives and intentions are accurately presented. We ask those questioning the Club to seek answers from us firstly before incorrectly questioning integrity and reporting potentially damaging false narratives to the detriment of the campaign.

If you would like further clarity anything relating to the community share offer, we encourage you to attend our Reds Rise Together event on the evening of Tuesday 23 May. You can secure your place by clicking here. For media enquiries, please contact owners@salfordreddevils.net with subject ‘MEDIA’.

Our continued thanks are extended to those who have already pledged their support.

£150K RAISED THROUGH REDS RISE TOGETHER

Salford Red Devils today announce that over £150,000 has been raised through the Reds Rise Together campaign.

Almost 600 people have pledged their support of the community share offer campaign which bids to make Salford Red Devils the first elite Rugby League club to become wholly community owned, though momentum has slowed approaching the fourth week of the campaign.

Paul King, Managing Director of Salford Red Devils said;

“It is a remarkable milestone to reach [£150,000 raised], and once again demonstrates just how much this club means to some people.

“It has been so touching to read the reasoning of those becoming shareholders on the Crowdfunder page, and know that others feel the same way about our great club as I do.”

“We’re less than £100k from the initial target, and whilst that can change quite quickly, momentum has really slowed as of late which is worrying.

“We’re approaching an important moment in the campaign – the final stretch – and ideally we’re through the £250k mark well before then and well on our way towards our upper targets.”

Salford Red Devils can also confirm that the club has rejected an offer for an unnamed player this week.

“A reflection of the progress we have made as a club in recent years is our hugely talented squad who are attracting offers from other clubs across the world, and who would potentially command significant transfer fees.”

“But one of the reasons we are doing this now is to ensure we can keep our playing squad together and compete at the higher end of the competition – it just feels counter-productive to move on members of the group right now so we will avoid doing so for as long as we can.

“That being said, it may be something we must consider sooner rather than later if we do not get back on track in the campaign.

“To those who have already pledged and are now making history with us, firstly thank you, and secondly, help us now go further by speaking to your friends and family about it.

“Get them involved right away, or get them along to the event on the 23rd to learn more – this is such a special moment, not only for the club and the game, but for our local community too.”

‘Reds Rise Together’ is a community share offer which allows an individual to purchase a share in the club’s holding company – now a Community Benefit Society (CBS) – entitling them to a vote and eligibility to stand for election to the CBS board.

Salford Red Devils today announce a Reds Rise Together Event on Tuesday 23rd May, 7:00-9:00pm at the Salford Stadium.

We’re linking up moral ownership with real, tangible, legal ownership, and after 150 years at the heart of our community, we’re now placing you – our community – at the heart of the club.

Meet your fellow owners and hear more first-hand about the history-making campaign.

Coming at a seminal moment of the campaign, the event offers a first chance for all those who have already pledged to come together, as well as an opportunity for those who are yet to become involved to learn more before the campaign closes.

After a strong start, Reds Rise Together continues to progress – today surpassing the special milestone of 500 supporters; however, to reach our upper targets, the support of local businesses is a necessity, and with that we would encourage any such members of our community to attend.

To a backdrop of a heritage display proudly showing our history, come together for an evening celebrating our future.

This is a limited capacity event – confirm your attendance here now to avoid missing out!

Together, we’re making history.

SALFORD RED DEVILS SURPASS £100,000 IN ‘REDS RISE TOGETHER’ CAMPAIGN

 “It is a positive sign to be starting Week Two of the campaign with £100,000 already raised.” 

“We are seeing support from all over. We have seen investment from our supporters, those that have not engaged with us in a while, members of our immediate community in and around Salford, as well as from the wider world.” 

“What is so important here is that we regain the momentum that we saw earlier on in Week One and we push on towards our initial target sooner than later. The amount of positive work we can do within the club and community do if we reach towards our upper targets is exciting to say the least.” 

“To those who have got involved already – thank you for supporting our club and for helping make history. To those who haven’t yet, we hope you join us. Let’s write another chapter here together.”
