Chester Gladiators can provide an update to members regarding subscriptions and our plans while the season is on hold.

This is an extremely challenging time for the UK and our primary concern is the health and wellbeing of our members and their families so please follow government and NHS guidance, keep safe and remain positive.

We do not know when the rugby league season will be able to resume, however the likelihood is that it will not be for some time.

The impact of coronavirus is being felt across society and we appreciate the economic uncertainty will be worrying for our members.

If you wish to freeze membership payments then please don't be concerned. Just let us know and we will make sure this is actioned immediately.

Although we cannot train or play matches, our club has annual expenses and ongoing running costs to consider and the crisis will increase pressure on our finances.

If you are able to continue with membership payments then please do and when we return to training, we will reimburse 75% of the amount paid between March and the date the season resumes.

Your support is incredibly important and will help to ensure our club can come through this period in a position to continue developing rugby league in Chester. If you have any questions about subscriptions please email

We plan to keep busy making sure we are fully prepared for the day we can start playing again and also doing what we can to support your physical and mental health until then.

We will be continuing with the 100 Club draws and we are planning to host a virtual social where we can get together using technology and catch up with a few drinks in our own homes.

Keep an eye on our social media platforms for ideas to develop your skills and maintain your fitness as well as some links to classic matches from the past through the #OURLEAGUE app.

We are also looking at what we can do as a club to be support the community response helping those who are most in need. If you have any ideas or suggestions please email

Chester Gladiators is still here and we are looking forward to getting back to playing the sport we love when it is safe to do so.

Until then, please remember to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.
