Bradford Bulls unveil ‘highly ambitious’ plan for new stadium on Odsal site

When you think of rugby league stadia, one immediately comes to mind.

That stadium is of course Odsal which holds the record attendance for any rugby league match in the UK.

However, in recent years, the ‘old girl’ has been allowed to deteriorate with the upkeep troubling both Bradford and the Rugby Football League (RFL) in the past.

Now, however, plans have been put in place to change the fortunes of the Bradford Bulls once and for all.

With what is being described as ‘highly ambitious plans’, Bradford Council have announced the blueprint for a brand new stadium to replace Odsal on its own site.

Bradford Bulls journalist The Game Caller tweeted: “Bradford Council bosses have unveiled highly ambitious plans to create a new 25,000-capacity stadium for the Bradford Bulls and the RFL on the existing Odsal site. The stadium would host International and Challenge Cup Rugby League matches.”

In doing so, it would make the West Yorkshire club an incredible force to be reckoned with on and off the field and could pave the way for greater success in the future.

With the ability to host both international and Challenge Cup matches, the new Odsal would be able to maximise revenue streams and help the Bulls enormously.

On the field, meanwhile, Bradford endured a difficult 2022 Championship season, finishing in ninth and missing out on a play-off spot after John Kear was sacked midway through the year.

Now, it’s up to Mark Dunning to turn the Bulls around on the field in 2023.

    I’ll bet if you did a poll, Odsal wouldn’t be in the top 10
