About RFU Support Package for Clubs announcement

To support clubs the RFU have announced that they will be providing a £7m relief package for community clubs. The package includes monies ring fenced and diverted for the community game as well as additional funding. These measures include:

• An early release of £800,000 cash due to clubs through the ticketing fund

• Early release of final funding payments (£600,000) to Constituent Bodies and suspension of the activity plans against which this was allocated, enabling them to utilise this to provide "immediate support grants" to clubs most in need. In addition £400,000 will be made available to Constituent Bodies who elect to match fund from their own reserves.

• A suspension of the Quarterly loan repayments for clubs with outstanding loans due in March (£335,000).

• The creation of a £5m support loans programme, offering loans of between circa £2k and circa £10k to clubs, with deferred re-payments for six months and repayable over three years.
