MAJOR SPONSOR ANNOUNCEMENT

For the first time in its history the RMFL have signed up a major sponsor offering naming rights to the league. The Swanport Hotel River Murray Football League will see a four-year partnership commence in 2019. RMFL President Terry Connolly made the announcement today after meeting to finalise the terms with the Swanport Hotel managing director Mr Steve Mole. Mr Connolly said the “League had sought out the major sponsor in the Swanport Hotel because of it being a strong supporter of several of the RMFL clubs along with the Murraylands Swans (the local Women’s Football Club) and numerous other community sporting organisations. The Swanport Hotel is an incredibly well-respected brand within the RMFL community, and we are thrilled to be working with them in what is an exciting time for our League. The Swanport company ethos aligns closely with what our League stands for, “strengthening country communities through football” with both organisations striving for the highest quality and success in everything we do.” said Connolly.
 
On top of this, their premises are right in the heart of our league, on Jervois Road just off the freeway. The clubs can choose to hold the post match presentations etc. when travelling from away games and feel comfortable in knowing they are welcomed by association”.

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.

NO DOGS ALLOWED


RMFL ROUGH PLAY CAMPAIGN

The River Murray Football League does not condone rough play in the form of violence on the football oval. It has instructed Umpires to use all of the necessary tools of discipline they have at their disposal including; the free kick, 50 metre penalty, yellow and red card and umpires report which results in players having to present themselves to the tribunal.

The RMFL have launched a campaign we are calling “NO DOGS ALLOWED”. The intent of the slogan is to create an impression that playing outside of the rules with unnecessary violence through any form of forceful contact we refer to as “Biting” and “Barking”. Biting activities include; kicking, punching, elbowing, bumping an opponent above the shoulders etc. “Barking” activities include; swearing, abuse of umpires, players and officials, vilification and derogatory comments towards others.

All players and officials of the RMFL agree such behaviour is low and unacceptable, and what we will refer to as DOG ACTivities. The intention of the campaign is much similar to the Danny Green initiative of the “Coward Punch”. As a player, you will be seen as a villain, and “not cool” should you engage in any of the DOG ACTivities listed above.

PHOTO GENIUS

 

How lucky we are to have both Bill Bailey of the Murray Valley Standard and Julie Wright from The Blues to share their camera skills with those football skills of our players! 

This lot is thanks to Bill!
