Greene King IPA have renewed their agreement with the RFU to sponsor the championship for a further 3 years.
The season was officially launched at Twickenham today and it mentioned that a new championship logo and website will be available for the start of the season on 2nd September. Although there was no mention of any additional funding,10 games will be streamed live and a commitment was made to enhance the support of the championship.
As usual its all very well making these announcements but the clubs require and deserve much more than a few pladitudes from the RFU.

"a commitment to enhance support of the Championship" .... hopefully not just empty words from the RFU.

Spending money on a new logo and website. Would rather they spend it on more direct funding for the clubs.

Until the RFU get their heads around the fact that Championship clubs are under funded by them, these sort of sponsors will be of little benefit in the progress of clubs. The ping pong will continue of one club coming down and going back up the following season, for the simple reason finances are in place.

I think that's exactly what they want - ring fencing by stealth.
