It is just not true, Following On, that the ink is dry on the TV deal and the £1.3 million promised to each county is in the bank.

The sports sponsorship market is in rapid downfall, and the Hundred sponsors will most certainly have a `get out` clause.

A year ago the Rugby Union turned down a £14 million annual offer from RBS to sponsors the 2019 Six Nations. Now it has just gone to a leading London law firm for well shy of £6 million (trust a leading London law firm to win a race to the bottom).

This is after negotiating with around 100 multi-national, quite a number of whom replied that they were keeping their petty cash in hand for the time being to combat the 2020 Brexit economic downturn.
