The National Conference League (NCL) is delighted to announce a new partnership with Impact Performance, the UK’s leading sports nutrition brand.
For the 2023 season, Rugby League’s premier community competition will be known as the Impact Performance National Conference League.
The Impact Performance NCL will once again be a four-division competition comprising 46 clubs from the north of England, and including two new names for 2023.
Ellenborough Rangers have been accepted to join the Third Division, where they will bolster a strong Cumbrian presence, already including Seaton Rangers, Millom and Hensingham.
The other new name is in the Premier Division and involves the 2022 champions as Hunslet Club Parkside merged with their neighbors Hunslet Warriors to form a new club, which will be known as Hunslet ARLFC.
NCL President Trevor Hunt said, “We are thrilled to be associated with Impact Performance, who work so closely with many elite athletes to help them achieve their goals. This aligns perfectly with the NCL’s philosophy of helping all of our players, administrators and clubs perform at their best.
“We appreciate that many modern day Rugby League players at all levels are looking to use UK Sport approved rehydration and nutritional supplements, aligned with healthy eating, to protect and maintain their bodies. This partnership will directly benefit players and their clubs through the bespoke supply of personalized nutrition products, at a hugely discounted price that will particularly help their pockets rather than the standard variants they currently use.
“It’s a 12 month contract with a 12 month option. It’s something players are looking for and we believe it will help them improve their health while looking to optimize their performance.
Paul Sculthorpe MBE, the Rugby League legend who is a brand ambassador for Impact Performance and director of Rhino RL, said: “I think this is a perfect match for Impact Performance and the NCL.
“All players, past and present, know the true value of good nutrition and supplements. Impact Performance products allow you to perform at your best and recover quickly to start again. Even though I’m retired I’ve been doing my share of high-intensity training for a while now – and Impact Performance is a big help.
“The Rhino Rugby League is the official distributor of Impact Performance products and will be in contact with all clubs in the coming days to explain how they can benefit from the NCL discounts.”
