    Rugby gets £135MILLION Government bail-out in English sport’s coronavirus aid package

    REVEALED: Who gets what as government confirms £300m bail-out for major sports hit by coronavirus – with rugby union netting £135m but men’s professional football misses out ENTIRELY

    • DCMS announced that £44million will be provided to the Rugby Football Union 

    Rugby union will receive a bailout totalling £135million as part of English sport’s coronavirus relief package, the government have announced.

    The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports (DCMS) will provide £44m to the Rugby Football Union, £59m to Premiership Rugby clubs, £9m to clubs in the Championship and £23m to clubs below the Championship.

    The news follows Sportsmail‘s exclusive on Wednesday that a relief package totalling £300m was to be announced to help cash-strapped sports through the winter and prevent many famous clubs from going bust.

    Rugby at both club and international level has been hit hard by the ban on spectators, with gate receipts at Twickenham alone accounting for 85 per cent of the RFU’s revenue.

    Football’s lower and women’s leagues meanwhile will take a much less hefty fee of £28m, with the National League, National League North and National League South receiving £11m of that sum.

    The other steps of the National League will receive half of the £28m allocated, while the top two divisions of women’s football have been granted just £3m.
