Managing Director, Steve Mole said he is delighted to partner with the River Murray Football League.
“Like minded in our approach, the RMFL is a family league that has the RMFL communities at the forefront of everything that it does, and this mirrors the Swanport Hotel values”.
Mr Connolly also announced at the release that the league was expanding into the digital age with its media platforms. “Weekly live streaming of the “Match of the Round” will allow more patrons to follow the competition and their favourite teams remotely. The League is investing in the necessary equipment to deliver a suitable quality product, opening the door for local businesses to advertise as League Sponsors”. In the past, the League had put a great deal of resources into the weekly Football Budget, and over the years the effort had started to exceed the reward. People are more demanding of the media and being web connected, in particular to phones, tablets, computers and televisions. The league sees this as an opportunity to meet these new demands head on. Loyal Football Budget sponsors will be offered new packages with benefits being enhanced through these digital platforms. “The live-streaming of games is very exciting for us and is something the League has lacked ever since local radio station 5MU broadcast matches back in the late 70s early eighties. “A lot of players travel to play here, and families of players some distances away can still enjoy their games from afar as it is happening”. Other match-day enhancements will be a supporters’ phone app where any RMFL followers can sign up for free and enjoy certain features such as “live score” where anyone can update the scores of the game they are at, anytime anywhere, player lists, premiership tables etc.
In closing, Connolly said 2019 will be a watershed year for the River Murray Football League and was look forward to a highly competitive year across all seven clubs.
CONSTITUTION and By-Laws
On Monday the 6th of August the League delegates voted to ratify a revised constitution and by-laws. The old constitution was dated, and the League has seen fit to utilise its affiliation with the SANFL and adopt one of its revised Affiliated League models. This will allow greater flexibility when running the league for the clubs. The By-Laws will be the leagues own form of regulations.
