Bradford Bulls have entered administration, with the administrators claiming they have just 10 days to save the club from liquidation.
The Bulls announced in March that they needed £1m to stay in business.
Joint-administrator Brendan Guilfoyle said: “We have just 10 working days to save the club from liquidation because there are no funds to carry on longer.
“If anyone is interested in buying the Bulls then we need to hear from them right now.”
He added: “This famous club is now on the brink of extinction. The directors made every effort to try to save the club within the 14-day timescale issued by the courts, but the moratorium ended on Monday without any potential buyer coming forward.”
