Rugby League Development Fund members would like to congratulate the Serbian Rugby League Federation on winning the 2015 Rugby League Planet Rugby League Development Fund Grant. Serbia submitted a comprehensive application covering the ongoing development of rugby league in Serbia and received a majority of the votes from RLDF members.

Jovan Vujosevic who is the Rugby League European Federation Regional Director for Central and East Europe and also the Serbian Rugby League Federation Regional Director commented on the great news.

“As RLEF Regional Director I want to thank the Rugby League Planet Rugby League Development Fund for their support of rugby league development around a World. Over the last 10 years rugby league has become the fastest growing sport in Europe and support from institutions like Rugby League Planet Rugby League Development Fund is a great example how we can push forward and support the greatest game of all. Serbia will use this grant to support a project that started with the support of the Australian Embassy in Belgrade. The Rugby League Planet Rugby League Development Fund Grant will help the Serbian Rugby League Federation to continue this project and to develop youth rugby league, because this is one of the essential parts of development of every rugby league nation.”

 

Rugby League development Fund member Richard Cowley also commented.

“The Serbian Rugby League Federation have been making steady progress year on year. They are one of the shining lights of rugby league in Europe. The Rugby League Development Fund Grant could not go to a more deserving nation. On behalf of all the Rugby League Planet Rugby League Development Fund members I would like to wish Jovan and the Serbian Rugby League Federation all the best as they continue to develop rugby league at grass roots level.”

The Rugby League Planet Rugby League Development Fund has now been assisting developing rugby league nations for 5 years. Jamaica, Canada, Ghana, Ukraine and now Serbia have all benefited from the $11,770 contributed by RLDF members.

The rugby league planet rugby league development fund is now looking to increase membership. For as little as $10 a month or a one off payment of $120 for 12 months you can do you little bit to assist rugby league as it grows around the world and have access to the applications the RLDF receives from developing nations.
