Memberships and shares are now available at Hemel Stags RLFC as the club continues its progression towards Championship 1 rugby next season.
Stags announced at the beginning of the summer that they would be owned and operated by a supporters’ trust, and a share can be purchased for £1, while membership for a year is £10.
Tom Williams, Hemel Stags Community Manager, said: “We are very happy to be able to launch our membership packages for Hemel Stags for the 2013 season.
“This is just for membership and ownership of the Supporters’ Trust – the company who will operate Hemel Stags in 2013.
“Members of the Trust will get access to great discounts on season tickets, merchandise and much more.”
A supporter-owned model has proved to be a successful method of running a rugby league club in this country and abroad.
Williams added: ‘I think that the chance to actually own a share of your own local professional sports club is a truly special thing to be able to do.
“I also think that the opportunity for the wider rugby league community to buy a share in the future of the sport, in an expansion club, is a great chance to be a part of history.”
