‘King or Queen of Fans’

Date published: Monday, September 9, 2013
OLDHAM RL supporters have an opportunity to earn the title of ‘King of Fans’
Kingstone Press Cider, sponsors of Championship and Championship One, is on the hunt for the best and most dedicated supporters in the two divisions.
Fans can nominate themselves or a friend and explain why they deserve to be ‘King of Fans’ in up to 150 words as part of the sponsors’ “Championing the Championships’ campaign in conjunction with ‘Love Rugby League’.
You need to hurry, though. The competition, open to over-18s only, closes at midnight this coming Sunday, September 15.
The search has already started on the Kingston Press Facebook page which will see one fan crowned from each of the clubs in the two divisions.
The 23 such fans will then be placed on the Facebook’s ‘Wall of Fame’ and will each win a crate of cider and a family ticket to Championships Finals day at Leigh Sports Village on Sunday, September 29.
Then one of the 23 finalists will be crowned overall ‘King (or Queen) of the Fans’.
The overall winner will be given VIP treatment at finals day plus a year’s supply of cider.
Gordon Johncox, managing director of Kingstone Press Cider, said: “We’re enjoying our first season as sponsors. We’ve immersed ourselves in the game and we’ve been impressed with the dedication of clubs, players and fans.
“This is our chance to celebrate every aspect of the Championships and, importantly, to reward those loyal fans who come out week after week in support of their clubs.”
