Paul Campbell has been a Broncos season ticket holder for the past five years, only missing two home games in the last three years, and he also puts his hand in his pocket out to follow his team on the road whenever possible. On top of this Paul uses his passion for the sport to help fundraise for charity, notably organising an auction of signed London memorabilia for the CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) Charity Ball.
When he’s not on the terraces cheering on his team, Paul champions them on social media and enjoys interacting with players, including Broncos Fan of Pride player ambassador, Kieron Dixon, on Twitter.
When asked to describe what being named London Broncos BRUT Fan of Pride means to him, Paul modestly replied:
“It means a lot because at the start going to London was never about me. I never thought supporting the club and putting in the effort as a fan would get me this far. It’s a good thing to know that the club and BRUT do recognise how supportive their fans, [such as Paul’s fellow Broncos shortlisted fans] Stuart Nightingale, Aaron Lomax, are.”
By winning BRUT’s Fan of Pride award for London Broncos, Paul will enjoy a day out at the Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford in October, as well as some BRUT product. He will also go forward for selection for the National BRUT Fan of Pride 2014. This award will be chosen by a panel of Rugby League experts and will see the overall winner winning £5,000 for their club’s community foundation, a pair of 2015 season tickets, a signed Super League shirt and an invitation to the Man of Steel Awards.
