Bradford have been dealt a blow with the news that funding set aside for their re-development of Odsal has been redirected.
Amidst several cuts, Bradford Council have decided that the £15 million of council money that had been ring-fenced for the Odsal Sports Village Project will now go elsewhere.
Bulls chairman Peter Hood said: "We completely understand why Bradford Council, like local authorities up and down the country, has had to take the decisions they have with their cash as they strive to meet the coalition government's demands.
"The Odsal Sports Village has always been, and remains, a council-led scheme that is as much about education, social cohesion and health and well-being as it is about sport.
"The Club will continue to progress the sports village with senior figures from Bradford Council and our other partners in the sports village project. At the same time, we will also continue to explore and develop other options."
