It is alleged Toronto and Toulouse declined to take part in the 2019 Challenge Cup because the RFL asked for a sizeable, upfront indemnity fee. The suggestion is the money would help offset lower gate receipts if a club (such as Toronto or Toulouse) from outside the sport's heartlands reached the Wembley final (as happened in 2018, with Catalans Dragons).

Rugby League World magazine editor Matthew Shaw tweeted: "Toronto haven't entered the Challenge Cup because they were asked to pay a significant sum to the RFL on the basis they reached the Final. This year's attendance saw the RFL lose a big sum of money and they had to cover their backs in case a non-UK side reached the final. Toulouse also asked to pay the same figure and, I believe, Catalans were too. As a result, Toronto aren't entering as they were left shocked by the figures involved."

Attendances at the last 4 finals have been going down

2015 - Leeds v Hull KR 80140
2016 - Hull v Warrington 76235
2017 - Hull v Wigan 68525
2018 - Catalan v Warrington 50672

Since Wembley was reopened the trend has been downwards with only 3 increase attendances from the previous year in the 12 finals played at the new Wembley.
