Bradford Bulls have been given a boost on their stadium at Odsal, with the Bulls’ hierarchy determined to continue improvements.
Odsal has had a terrific lifespan, opening in 1934 with the Bradford venue still holding the record for the most amount of people crammed into one stadium.
However, in recent seasons, with the uplifting of the Bulls to Dewsbury Rams’ Tetley’s Stadium, work has had to be put on the backburner.
Now, though, Bradford are ready to go one better,
General Manager Tracey Erby wrote in the Telegraph & Argus: “Our commitment is to continue to invest in the stadium on a weekly basis.
“It may only be modest, but it is real and we are doing it.
“The bigger prize though remains a more substantial upgrade to at least start to build the kind of facility we believe everyone deserves in the 21st century.
“We listened with interest Michael Gove’s announcement on the government’s Levelling Up Agenda.
“We believe Odsal Stadium and its environs are precisely what the government has in mind as a project that will lift standards and opportunities for the people of Bradford.”
On the field, meanwhile, the Bulls suffered a surprise home defeat to the Sheffield Eagles at the weekend.
