The move, which will cement the longest-standing sponsorship deal in Super League history will see the society backing the Challenge Cup holders until the end of the 2023 season.

The front of shirt sponsorship is also a club record.

This is the 15th season that the Society has been the club’s principal sponsor. It follows a successful year for the Rhinos in 2020, when they defeated Salford Red Devils to bring home the Challenge Cup.
