There is value in that site. But it needs a lot of upfront development cash to unlock any profit.

Council don't have cash, but they have land. And they also have statutory targets they need to hit. They need to build 4000 homes across all of Bradford - The Leeds/Bradford strategic corridor is a prime site- basically Tyersal/Tong (Tong training ground borders that). They also have statutory authority over public health- exercise, obesity - improving access to sport/exercise is a key target there. At the moment, an OSV type development would align with a lot of key Council targets. Especially if someone else pays.

RFL have cash. And they still seem to want a stadium they control, which can take England Internationals, cup semi-finals, that sort of thing, preferably centrally located with easy access to M62. So they'll be after a 30k stadium. They (or the stadium management company) will want a sitting tenant. I would assume the arguments will be over the share percentages in the stadium management company.

Anyway. All idle musings, the Bradford council strategic development plan is available on the council page. Their initial plans for developing Odsal Sedbergh are also available. But you all know it makes sense....

I've been banging on about this for a while. the reasn the RFL are up to something, and why they acquired the lease on Odsal in the first place, is cos they have millions to spend from Sport England, but have to spend a certain amount on infrastructure. Bulls aren't important to them after 2019 when the rugby playing covenant expires, but do have a sublease so can't be booted. Unless of course poop happens and piles up, like being given no money and penalised -12 points, and they go bust and forfeit the sublease.

I refuse to accept that the RFL had the brains or vision to be that machiavellian when they bought the lease.

They have never demonstrated that kind of capacity for such innovative strategic thinking or foresight in the most important area of their existence i.e running the flippin game!

Seems our major sponsor and Stadium sponsor is having troubled times. Hope all who work for them are ok , but does not bode well for next season.

Ouch! They're absolutely awful figures. No wonder the Chief Exec has gone. Sounds like they need to get back to what they were doing before things went south.

Wonder how long our deal with them lasts?

Hopefully contract is water tight so they can't just get out of it. Ironic given their business.

How much is the Provident contract worth? They don't even appear on our shirt anymore. Obviously there is the stadium sponsorship.
