The RFL can confirm that it will assess four official bids to create a new professional Rugby League Club in Bradford.
The RFL set out a clear process last week and subsequently received twelve requests for further information regarding the possibility of setting up a new professional club in the city.
The four bids that have been submitted will remain confidential and will now be thoroughly assessed by the RFL Executive which aims to make a recommendation to the RFL Board as soon as possible.
Bradford is a great city with a rich Rugby League heritage and deserves a professional club that supporters can be proud of.
