Tony Adams clearly has left many with total surprise with this new announcement, as the ex-captain of Arsenal football club, will be taking on a new role as the President of the Rugby Football League.

According to reports Tony Adams, will succeed current president Andy Burnham next summer.
While speaking on his new role as President, Tony Adams who is also a retired England International and Captain, said:
“It will be an honour to become the next President of the RFL,”

“I am passionate about working with everyone in the sport to raise the profile of mental health, wellness and resilience, for players and for everyone in Rugby League.

“I’d like to play my part in championing this brilliant sport on the national stage.” He said.

On his part, the Chairman of the Rugby Football League Brian Barwick had this to say about Tony Adams and his new role. He said:

“Tony Adams is known and respected throughout sport and beyond, not only for his outstanding playing career with Arsenal, but more recently for his pioneering work with Sporting Chance.

The charity has helped more than 400 rugby league players, since the RFL entered into an official partnership with Sporting Chance in 2011, and Tony himself delivered seminars at Wigan and Hull earlier this year.

“The game has recognised the importance of mental health, for players and everyone else involved, and Tony’s election is another significant step in that regard.”
