RFL statement ownership of Bradford Bulls
The RFL is continuing to assess the details of a further modified offer to purchase Bradford Bulls from the club’s official administrator.
The latest offer has been submitted by the same business consortium whose original offer was rejected earlier this week because of the conditions attached.
Whilst the RFL remains hopeful that new owners for the club can be found and is receptive to constructive approaches from interested parties, the governing body is still unable to consider conditional offers.
The RFL will continue to work with the administrator to achieve our shared aim of finding new owners for Bradford Bulls and will continue to be flexible in its approach to discussions with prospective owners.
RFL Director of Standards and Licensing Blake Solly said: “We have received details of an updated offer to the administrator of Bradford Bulls and will respond to the administrator in due course.
“Throughout this process the RFL has to recognise its responsibility to safeguard the best interests of the wider game, the competitions and all member clubs.
“We understand that the protracted nature of the dialogue and the perceived lack of transparency are a source of frustration for many people but these matters are extremely complex and it is imperative that confidentiality and integrity are maintained throughout this process.”
