A business network born in Salford with global ambitions.



A new business club will launch next month following the takeover of Salford Red Devils by SRD Holdings. Club 13 is the brainchild of Andrew Rosler, a director of the new holding company.

The intention is to build on the strong network of businesses and professionals already associated with the Super League club and provide a forum where they can exchange ideas and create opportunities.

The Club will host events and guest speakers throughout the year at both the AJ Bell Stadium and other venues across the City.

“I believe Club 13 will assist the Salford Red Devils in a number of ways. We’ll be able to introduce current and retiring players to a professional and academic network which will aid their post career transition. We will also provide support to international players and their families arriving in the UK from overseas clubs”, said Andrew Rosler.

The club will have a number of other specific objectives, including promoting Rugby League in Salford & Greater Manchester and to facilitate funding opportunities for grass roots sports.

“In addition, The Rugby League World Cup is coming to the UK in 2021 and Club 13 will also help us build on some of the opportunities that will bring.” Andrew added.
Club 13 will officially launch on 13th February, with the club website going live. The first event will take place on the 13th March, at the AJ Bell stadium.
