Major Interest in New Bradford RFL Club

January 5, 2017

The Rugby Football League (RFL) has revealed that 10 parties have signalled an interest in creating a new club in Bradford.

Championship club Bradford Bulls went into liquidation earlier this week, denture after administrators were unable to find a suitable buyer for the Yorkshire outfit.

The RFL has announced that any newly-formed club in the city would replace Bradford Bulls in the Championship, generic albeit with a substantial 12-point penalty. Interested parties have until January 9 to confirm their offers, with the February 5 fixture against Hull KR tentative expected to be fulfilled.

Bradford Bulls won their last Super League title in 2005.
