More interest in Bradford

The RFL has been made aware of further interest in buying Bradford Bulls, following the receipt of an unconditional offer.

The latest offer, rumoured to be from Bradford City Football Club, comes less than a week after Super League (Europe) Ltd launched their own bid for the struggling club, who have been in administration for the past six weeks.

Previous offers for the club had been rebuffed due to their conditional nature, believed to surround guarantees over the club’s Super League future and the ownership of their Odsal ground.

RFL Director of Standards and Licensing Blake Solly said: “It is clear that the decisive and bold actions of Super League (Europe) Ltd have prompted this latest interest.

“The Super League clubs’ view that Bradford Bulls are an attractive proposition to would-be buyers has been re-affirmed and we remain cautiously optimistic that the club can find suitable new owners in the near future.

“We have also been contacted by other parties and, as you would expect, these groups will also be given the opportunity to set out their vision for Rugby League in Bradford.

“The Board continues to be receptive to unconditional offers and is keen to bring to an end the uncertainty surrounding the future of Bradford Bulls and the wider sport.

“With that in mind, the Board has asked that all interested parties submit their expressions of interest by 5.00pm on Friday August 10.”
