The RFL have released the following statement regarding the situation with Bradford Bulls
As is normal when a club enters administration, the RFL Board has today terminated Bradford Bulls Northern Limited’s membership of the RFL.
The RFL is in discussion with the appointed administrators about their plans for the future of the club. The RFL Board will then consider any proposals put forward by the administrators to secure the future of the club. Membership (and the conditions of any membership) of the RFL is then entirely at the discretion of the RFL Board.
As part of exercising its discretion, the RFL Board would assess any individual it is proposed be involved in the ownership or management of the club to ensure that they are a fit and proper person.
In addition, as part of the conditions of any Membership, the RFL Board would then determine the appropriate sporting sanction, which could include a points deduction or possible relegation.
This is clearly a distressing time for supporters, players and employees of Bradford Bulls. We will aim to keep them updated of any progress as and when we can.
