The Community Integrated Care Learning Disability Super League is part of a wider strategic partnership between Community Integrated Care, the Betfred Super League and the RFL, which aims to develop and enhance the community programmes provided by the sport to people with care and support needs.

As the official social care partner of the sport, Community Integrated Care will be leading the development of a range of programmes that will use Rugby League to transform the lives of people who require care and support.

Mark Adams, CEO of Community Integrated Care, says: “We are thrilled that Hull FC have signed up to be part of the 2020 Community Integrated Care Learning Disability Super League season.

“Hull FC are one of Rugby League’s most iconic clubs and the work of their Charitable Foundation is highly respected within the sport, so they will be an incredible addition to this programme.

“The Community Integrated Care Learning Disability Super League is changing lives; giving people the chance to achieve their greatest aspirations, make friends and grow in independence.

“We know that it will be a dream come true for many local people who have learning disabilities and autism to wear that famous black and white shirt, and represent the club that they love. We can’t wait to see them in action this season.”

Richard Tate, Head of Programmes for Hull FC Community Foundation, added: “We are really looking forward to being part of the LDSL family in 2020. LDSL is a very rewarding concept for both the players and the staff involved.

“Through this programme and our great Community Coaches, Brad Sugden & Matty Kirby, we will be able to give participants of all abilities the skills and confidence to play the game of Rugby League, as well as make new friends and have the chance to represent Hull FC with pride.”

The newly formed Hull FC Learning Disability Super League Team is entirely inclusive and welcomes all players, regardless of skill or experience.
