Six Championship clubs have applied to be in Super League for the 2021 season.
Leigh, Toulouse, Featherstone, York, London and Bradford are all vying for Super League’s 12th spot, which was left vacant after Toronto Wolfpack failed in their bid to be re-admitted into the top flight for next season.
Leigh have submitted a 430-page bid document to the Rugby Football League headquarters at Red Hall in Leeds as well as the Super League Europe Limited offices in Manchester.
York, Featherstone and Bradford have confirmed on social media of their final submissions of their formal applications.
London Broncos issued a statement to their supporters on Sunday outlining their Super League ambitions while Toulouse have been vocal on social media of their bid by regularly posting videos from people supporting their bid.
