Rugby League Cares has re-opened the application process by which towns and cities can register their interest in working with the charity to create a National Rugby League Museum.
The decision comes after a series of delays to the original proposals to open the facility within Bradford City Hall.
RL Cares chairman Tim Adams said: “We remain confident of delivering a National Rugby League Museum of which the whole sport can be proud.
“It has become apparent to the charity’s trustees that reopening the tender process is the best way to realise our ambitions.
“We are inviting expressions of interest from all parties, including the towns and cities who were involved in the original consultation period in 2016.
“Rugby League has a rich and colourful history and a great story to tell: the National RL Museum will be a blue-chip addition to any town or city and we anticipate there will be considerable interest in hosting it.
“Since we entered into the partnership with Bradford City Council in 2016, we have all invested considerable resource, time and energy into the project but, sadly, the museum remains some way off.
“We recognise that much has changed since 2016 and that we need to look again at where is the best location for the National Rugby League Museum.”
