Tourism Development Fund comes up with another £56,000 for rugby club
Championship clubs, including Jersey, will also receive £345,000 from the RFU this season, rising to £380,000 by the final year of a four-year deal. There will also be help for travel to British and Irish Cup ties.
When the club, who will play in a friendly at St Peter this weekend, were given their one-year sponsorship deal worth £75,000 from the Economic Development department many sports clubs were left outraged.
They said that they were struggling to survive after having their States funding slashed.
This week the JEP has learned that the club were given an additional £56,000 grant from the Tourism Development Fund – funding provided by the Economic Development department. The money was spent on building the terraced stand alongside the pitch in St Peter.
