Featherstone’s promotion hopes have taken a hit with the news majority shareholder Feisal Nahaboo and chief executive Craig Poskett have left the Super League hopefuls.
The departures follow what have been described as "undisclosed disagreements" by chairman Mark Campbell, who will continue in his role.
Nahaboo, who has bankrolled the Championship club for the last two years, felt his only option was to walk away after the club refused to move in the direction he wanted.
"I was 110 per cent behind the region. I believe the resources being made available and the strategy deployed would have got the club into Super League,” said Nahaboo.
"I've told the club, subject to amicable discussions over the next seven days, I will keep the door open but believe Mark Campbell is the man to lead Fev.
"I did my bit and the fans are with him, understandably, so walking... was the only way."
Featherstone tabled a lucrative offer to former Great Britain international Leon Pryce last week but Nahaboo’s departure makes that move unlikely.
Campbell paid tribute to Nahaboo following his departure and said fans of the club should be very grateful for the money he has invested.
"The club is proud to have had a financial supporter in Feisal. He was committed to helping the club progress,” he said.
"I'd also like to thank Craig in his time at Fev as we've seen revenues grow across the business year on year and wish him well in the future."
