I club membri della Scottish Rugby, riuniti in uno Special General Meeting tenutosi al BT Murrayfield, hanno votato all’unanimità in favore di investimenti esterni nelle due squadre pro, Edinburgh Rugby e Glasgow Warriors.
171 votanti hanno approvato la mozione presentata dal presidente della Scottish Rugby, Rob Flockhart.
Si apre, quindi, una nuova era per il rugby scozzese di club.
Il Chief Executive della SRU, Mark Dodson, ha detto che “I would like to thank our member clubs who have turned out in force tonight to support our ambitions to source external revenue for our professional clubs.
This was a pivotal moment for the game in Scotland and I am delighted our members have empowered us to move forward.
The hard work really does start now and we will now take time to prepare before entering a challenging market with what we think is a compelling and credible investment opportunity.”
