Toronto Wolfpack have bought a “sizable minority stake” in fellow rugby league club London Skolars. The two organisations will collaborate and share best practice in digital marketing, media, PR and fan engagement.
The Skolars play in the third-tier League 1, one division below the Betfred Championship where the Wolfpack will play next season.
“We are hugely excited with Toronto Wolfpack’s investment and partnership; the impact they have had on rugby league in a short period of time is very exciting, and unprecedented in our game,” said London Skolars owner Hector McNeil.
“This financial and business partnership with a fellow key global city will allow us to amplify our own ambitions and work together to elevate through the leagues and establish a club capable of eventually reaching and competing in [the] Super League.”
