Brian McDermott, Martin Vickers and Bob Hunter of Toronto Wolfpack are asking for the support of the sporting world to raise vital funds for the players and staff of Toronto Wolfpack, within the UK and Canada.
In unprecedented times the club was faced with having to pull out of the 2020 Super League competition due to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. A lifeline to bring the team back into the Super League competition for the 2021 season, under new ownership, was then rejected by the Super League Board earlier this month.
All employees of the Wolfpack have gone without wages for several months. Furthermore UK players and staff have been ineligible for any furlough support from either the Canadian or UK governments, while also receiving minimal support from the game.
This GoFundMe campaign has been launched to ensure that all players and staff are able to receive some financial help to cope with these difficult challenges, particularly at this time of year.
We fully understand the hardship being faced by everyone globally at the present time. This is a hard working and dedicated group of people, who have hopefully brought a lot of enjoyment into many people’s lives during the Wolfpack’s short existence, and any contribution that you are able to give at this time would be gratefully received.
Many thanks for listening, and being part of our incredible journey.
