Luke Backhouse, one of the men behind the Liverpool Rugby League franchise, has revealed that they plan to launch the team at the end of this month before Magic Weekend.

The property specialist has come together with former Salford owner Marwan Koukash and businessman Andrew Mikhail in a bid to give the sport a major presence in the city.

Backhouse, who was previously on the board at Widnes Vikings, says the three entrepreneurs have sufficient financial backing and knowledge of the game to be successful.

Despite the cities almost unrivalled passion for football, the trio are trying to encourage the amateur game in Liverpool and also introduce rugby league into schools.

Speaking to Insider Media, Backhouse said: “We’re getting help from the council and in terms of getting sponsors and investors, we haven’t had to go looking. They’re excited about how big it could become.

“We hope to launch in 2021 and hopefully we can work our way to the Super League by 2022 or 2023."
