As sponsors of the Championships, National Conference League and as an official partner of the England Rugby League team, at Kingstone Press we know just how passionate fans of the sport are.  So we have launched a search to find the country’s biggest Rugby League fan to be crowned as Proper Fan of the Season and to fly off to Australia to see the England team compete in the Four Nations! 

We are calling for nominations from local fans to tell them why they love the sport and deserve to win this honoured title and amazing prize. 

Whether you follow a Championships, Super League or National Conference League team or simply just love all things Rugby League we want to hear from you.  Do you loyally stand by your club; never miss a game, volunteer at matches, would do anything for your club or are you simply just a die-hard Rugby League fan?  Then tell us about it! To be in with a chance of winning, simply nominate yourself online at or or via the entry forms at selected clubs.  And if you are feeling generous you can also nominate a mate who you think deserves the title!

The deadline for nominations is midnight on 29th August.  After which a judging panel, made up of representatives from the RFL, Kingstone Press and industry officials, will select ten finalists who will be given VIP tickets to Championships Finals Day.  During Finals Day the ten candidates will have the opportunity to tell the judges why they think they are the country’s biggest Rugby League supporter.  One devoted individual will then be revealed as Kingstone Press’s Proper Fan of the Season, and will win the chance of a lifetime to see England play Australia during the Four Nations, in Melbourne. 

Gordon Johncox said: “Rugby League is an incredible game with proper supporters who are committed to the sport and we want to find out which fan, and which team has true Rugby League spirit.  We want to not only take the opportunity to reward the loyalty of the fans, but also to help show why the sport is so popular up and down the country.”  

For more information or details on how to nominate visit the Kingstone Press website, visit our Facebook page or look for the posters in selected clubs. Full T&Cs for the competition can be found on the website.
