Rugby League club Keighley Cougars has taken a step to protect the planet, committing to plant a tree for every sale of its new shirt.

The club claims to become the first sports club in the world to make this move in its stance against climate change.

Keighley’s new shirt features a leaf pattern with the caption ‘there is no Planet B’.

The League One side has joined forces with MoreTrees to have the trees planted.

Co-Owner of the club, Ryan O’Neill, said: “Our new tree planting initiative is particularly exciting for Keighley Cougars.

“Everyone knows there are huge benefits to planting trees, and this is a way for our club and our fans to play a part in the fight against climate change, as well as supporting a community and an environment, in another part of the world, that will really benefit from our help.”
