Exiles offered stadia for next season
London Welsh chairman Bleddyn Phillips admits the club has received many offers of help as they try to secure Premiership rugby.
The Exiles won the Championship title this season, beating Cornish Pirates over two legs in the play-off final, but have been barred from promotion to the top flight as their current ground does not meet the standards required.
The Richmond-based outfit learnt the news just before taking the pitch to play the south-west club but rose above it to win both legs and secure the title.
They have not given up hope of plying their trade in the Aviva Premiership next term, however, and it has been announced that their appeal will be held on June 21 in London.
Welsh staged the second leg of the play-off at Oxford United's Kassam Stadium, which is the ground that they want to call home if they do manage to overturn the ruling.
And it appears as though there is a groundswell of support behind the west Londoners, as Phillips revealed.
"This includes not only the general rugby supporting public, but more specifically owners and managers of Premiership clubs and other rugby clubs, as well as leaders of clubs in the Football League and other sporting institutions," he said.
And he made it clear that there are several options regarding stadia which should be more than adequate to host Premiership contests.
"These offers of help and encouragement extend not only to promises of financial and professional support, but also to offering up, in several cases, sporting venues as stadia where London Welsh might wish to play their 'home' games in 2012/13."
