  • Brave new world - Rugby League World Cup

    Rugby League’s World Cup has had a chequered history. With another one looming, RUNNING RUGBY looks at what’s in store   Rugby league was the first of the rugby codes to hold a World Cup, the inaugural event taking place in France in 1954. But in the intervening 50 years the competition has had an erratic and somewhat bizarre history. Sometimes the action has been spread over several years with the result that hardly any of the participants in the opening rounds actually featured in the fin...

It was at that time, four years ago almost to the...

  • The name game

    GERAINT LLOYD-TAYLOR of law firm Lewis Silkin looks at the burgeoning trend of branding stadiums   Stadium naming rights seem to be all the rage in the UK at the moment, but it’s not a new concept. One of the earliest examples is Wrigley Field in Chicago, home of the Chicago Cubs baseball team. William Wrigley, the chewing gum entrepreneur, owned the team and put his name on the venue 80 years ago where it remains to this day.
