Whitehaven RLFC have today agreed a deal with Serbian rugby league team Red Star Belgrade subject to the financial targets being met by the club. 

The consortium led by Stuart Harvey has worked around the clock this week to ensure Whitehaven secured this partnership ahead of a number of other clubs including interest from an unnamed super league club. 

Stuart Harvey has completed the deal with serial entrepreneur Colin Kleyweg who is Managing Director & co-owner of Red Star Belgrade Rugby League although he is based out of Perth, Western Australia. 

Harvey said that this will create a pathway for the elite Serbian players to come to Cumbria and work with our academy structure from 2019 and vice versa. We are also working on a proposal that will see Red Star play Whitehaven as part of our pre season. 

Mr. Kleyweg who is a very experienced businessman with business interests across Australia and Europe is currently considering a proposal to invest into Whitehaven RLFC and take a leading role alongside Harvey. 

Red Star Belgrade RLFC (WA) Pty Ltd are very excited to be part of a grass roots rugby league club in the games heartland. This opportunity meets many of our Board’s requirements in terms of supporting both the growth of the game to wider audiences, but in respecting the tradition and strength of the game of rugby league in the heartlands.

We see this as a tremendous partnership to show our players increased opportunities in League 1, and the Championship in coming years, as well as giving young players from Cumbria the opportunity to play in Serbia to diversify their experience, both in terms of the game, and life experiences.Red Star Belgrade will be looking to develop this relationship with Whitehaven RLFC at all levels, through business, marketing, coaching, player development and in developing various formats of the game to suit the involvement of men, women, boys and girls.
