Club 13: open for business

Now taking bookings at Club 13 and open for business.

Nothing less than a desire to become the leading forum where sport is the catalyst to first class hospitality, entertainment and networking that delivers real returns to its members.

 Club 13, rewarding for all comers.

A business network, born in Salford, with global ambitions. Pioneered from the AJ Bell Stadium. Club 13 is the brainchild of Andrew Rosler, a director of the new holding company for Salford Red Devils Rugby League Club. But be very clear, the grounding is from rugby, though this inspirational gathering is for sports enthusiasts whatever the game.

The Club will host dynamic events and guest speakers throughout the year at the AJ Bell Stadium and other venues across Salford and Greater Manchester. These will be a real treat and are hand-picked to add value and entertain.

So why Club 13?

This relates to the team in rugby league but symbolizes the calendar, with members all benefiting from the monthly forum on the 13th day every month. This only varies if it falls on a weekend.

◊ To provide ‘super’ standard and memorable entertainment and hospitality for the right reasons. Every Member brings two people to dine at each Event within the fee

◊ Excellent value for money and an unrivaled Forum where we proactively encourage and facilitate the exchange of trade and business between Members

◊ Sign-posting of new business opportunities

◊ All Members on an exclusive, dedicated Club 13 Directory

◊ Secure ‘Closed’ Linkedin Group for interaction 365 days a year

◊ Discounts on Salford Red Devils Tickets and Match Day hospitality (10%)

◊ Promotion of selected news stories through leading PR agency

◊ e-newsletters to Members.

Club 13 will have several, specific strategic and corporate social responsibility objectives, including promoting Rugby League in Salford and Manchester and to facilitate funding opportunities for grass roots sports. It will aim to facilitate and expand the reach of the Salford Club and the sport of rugby league by launching Club 13 hubs in London and key rugby league playing nations Australia and New Zealand.  This can only further the aims of economic growth and to provide support for international trade and opportunities for Club 13 members and talented athletes between these destinations. There are further exciting plans a foot and our Members will hear first! We are working towards securing host City status within Greater Manchester for the Rugby League World Cup 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you to Club 13.

For a change, I thought I’d share a profile of one of the sponsors that has supported a sporting organisation, which ACROBAT FCSM represents.  Riqueza has been this Season’s main shirt sponsor at Manchester Rugby Club.

“Riqueza Group believes in building lifelong relationships for wealth, health and happiness. So what does that mean? Let’s use Sport as a Sector for an example as to how Riqueza do their business!

As a member of The London Sporting Club in Mayfair, Riqueza has built a number of relationships with sports personalities past, present and future. Pictured are partners of Riqueza Neil Rustage and Carl Oates with their land, property client, Sam Allardyce. Sam has land and property in Moraira, Spain where Riqueza has an Office. The guys from Riqueza also have pride in their Brand Ambassador, Roy Evans (ex-Liverpool).

Riqueza sponsors and supports a number of non league sporting entities across the UK including Manchester Rugby Club and AFC Fylde of the Vanarama National League. One of the services it offers is to facilitate personal and professional insurances for the clubs across players, directors and supporters.

Riqueza enjoys some great relationships on a personal level across sport encompassing the media, the athletes themselves, agents and organisations. Riqueza’s partner Carl Oates was recently in a prominent photograph with Sky Sports News Presenter, Hayley McQueen, at The League Managers Awards dinner, one of footballs’ most prestigious annual events. Riqueza works closely with Van Rooyen in Warrington, Cheshire to provide high net worth sporting clients with luxury, prestige and elite cars from across the World on a leased and purchased basis.

So just a few anecdotes on what wealth, health and happiness means in collaboration.  In summary, if you’re in the market for luxury property, luxury cars or all encompassing personal and professional insurances to protect yourself, Riqueza would love to help.
