Participation in team sports improves self-esteem, mental discipline and social skills
Bramley Buffaloes RLCC make training and development fun, we encourage our players to support each other and we celebrate individual achievements and success as a whole.
Although exercise and sport in general can have an incredible effect on people’s mental health and wellbeing, research has shown that there are more impactful mental health benefits of team sports.
We’d love for you to get involved and see the positive impact rugby can have on players.
Get involved with our community and remove economic barriers
Sponsorship of a grassroots sport delivers a much higher return on investment than traditional advertising. This is because sponsorship allows your business to become directly involved in activities that are highly valued by local consumers.
Consumers are known to form strong positive associations with sponsors who support the development of grassroots sport and contribute to the local community. With eight out of ten consumers preferring to believe in what a company does rather than what it says, it’s easy to see why many businesses are choosing to sponsor rugby clubs like ours as a way of maximising their marketing return.
By directly supporting us, you’re helping to remove economic barriers — making sport accessible, affordable and inclusive for all.

The Club Today
Bramley Buffaloes Rugby League Community Club is seeking sponsors for the upcoming seasons.
We’re an ambitious team in the Yorkshire Men’s League, playing in the Premier Division. A dynamic, innovative club with 140 years of history behind us, we have a lot to look forward too and we’ll be looking to progress further up the Rugby League Pyramid in the coming seasons.
The Buffaloes Senior Team(s) will be playing again in Bramley at Bramley Phoenix Rugby Football Club, on the Warrels, this season. We’re looking for sponsorship of players, kits and teamwear from sponsors looking to promote their brand and products in the Leeds area, but throughout Yorkshire and nationally too.
If working with an ambitious and forward-thinking club is of interest, then we’d love to hear from you.
History of Our Club
Rugby League in Bramley has a long history, going back to 1879 when the Reverend S.W. Cope founded the Bramley club and became the first President. In the 1880s, the new club played at Whitegate Farm and changed in the popular Unicorn public house off Town Street.
The club got through its first season unbeaten and had players selected for representative honours. The 1890s saw more players selected for Yorkshire and England, the most famous being Harry Bradshaw, who played seven times for England.
The refusal by Twickenham to support the wishes of the Bramley club to compensate Bradshaw for ‘broken time’ to help him travel with the England team to Dublin in 1894 was a trigger for the subsequent breakaway of the northern rugby clubs to form the Northern Union in 1985, which evolved into Rugby League as we know it today.
The 1950s and 1960s saw the club consolidate in the league with a reputation for blooding young players, but adding some old heads. The club signed three Māori players in 1953, including fullback Johnny Wilson, who was to become a Bramley legend for his goal kicking and tackling, and who became mine host at the Barley Mow pub.
Overall, the sport of Rugby League has undergone many structural changes in recent years. The reborn Bramley club, itself innovative in forming the first ever fans’ owned club, has played in, and been successful in three major competitions in its short history. Change is a certainty in our sport, witness the new structures for the professional game introduced this season. Bramley RLCC has a track record in adapting to change but that change is exciting.
With membership and crowd attendances rising, we have ambitious plans to continue to develop the infrastructure at the club. We continue to work to ensure that Bramley Rugby League will play a high-profile role and contribute to the life of Bramley and the broader West Leeds community.
Naturally, we want to support our sponsors and build them in to our club on a strategic level — allowing all of our partners to benefit from our ever-improving facilities, expanding audience and our community involvement.
