The Salford Red Devils have appointed former Club Captain as Chief Executive Officer with immediate effect. 
Club Owner Marwan Koukash made this statement regarding the appointment;

I would like to welcome former club captain Ian Blease to the Salford Red Devils as C.E.O.

Ian has had a long and illustrious career in both Rugby League and Business management, not only is he a well respected businessman, he is a born and raised Salfordian. 

Bringing him back to the club is a decision that I believe will be one met with positivity and enthusiasm. Starting from today we will actively be working to increase our profile and the brand of Salford Red Devils not only within the Salford community but across the North West region. 

Ian has the ambition and experience to not only create a new ethos and attitude that will capture a new audience, but also one that will build upon the foundations already in place at our club.

There is no greater time to buy into our vision, we need the people of this city and beyond to support the club, season tickets are fantastic value for money.

I would urge everyone to come on board and get your season tickets, this team is going places, and you won’t want to miss a minute in 2017.
