Tetley’s Challenge Cup – Final Representation Competition!

Tetley’s Challenge Cup would like all clubs that have taken part in this years competition to be represented on the pitch as the finalist teams come out (as illustrated below).


A large hand held flag with the club logo on will be produced for each of the 81 clubs that took part in this years Challenge Cup and will be held by one representative from the club who will also wear the club’s kit. If this is something you’d like to do – please email info@keighleycougars.com with why you should be our representative. Deadline 7 July.

We’re looking for our representative! They need to be over 14 years old. (If you are under 18 then you need to accompanied on the day by a parent/guardian. Pls note, parent/guardian will not be able to be with the representative at all times including when they go pitch side and into the tunnel area).

In terms of the logistics of the day the club representative will need to be at Wembley Stadium at approximately 10am on Saturday 23 August to take part in the on pitch rehearsal. As a thank you we’ll provide two match tickets to each flag carrier so they and a guest can enjoy the day. For the avoidance of any doubt no accommodation or travel expenses will be paid by the RFL for this activity.

  1. I hope that this message arrives before the deadline because I would be extremely proud to represent my home town club at such a special event as the Challenge cup final. My love of rugby league began 23 years ago when I was taken to Cougar Park by Alan and Carol Inman and although Keighley lost to Huddersfield that afternoon, I was hooked and have loved the sport ever since. I turn 40 a few weeks after the final and for me this is an opportunity of a lifetime and although there will be other worthy candidates to perform this honour , non are more passionate than I am about Keighley Cougars rugby league club. When you’ve ridden the Cougars rollercoaster and then stayed on even after it’s come off the rails a few times then the club is truly in your heart. Thanks for listening and look forward to your reply. PS. I loking forward to wearing the team kit too .

    1. Hi David,

      Thank you so much for your entry – it’s great to hear of such passionate fans. Unfortunately we have chosen another winner but you were our runner up. Don’t forget there will be opportunities like this next year.

      Have a fab 40th birthday from all at Cougars.
