Bradford Bulls call on firms to buy season tickets for staff

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Gerry Sutcliffe Gerry Sutcliffe

Bradford Bulls chiefs are urging businesses to buy season tickets for their staff as sporting success sweeps the city.

Former Sports Minister Gerry Sutcliffe, honorary chairman of the club, said it will write to large companies, including Hallmark Cards and Yorkshire Water, asking them to support the side and sport in the area in light of Bradford City’s Capital One Cup heroics and Bradford-born Scott Waites’ BDO World Professional Darts Championships win on Sunday.

The Bradford South MP said: “These successes have been great for the city and show Bradford is on the up.

“We had a fantastic result at the weekend, beating Dewsbury Rams 48-6, and our Super League campaign starts on February 3.

“Bradford City have done fantastically well so far in the cup, Bradford Park Avenue are doing well and Scott Waites winning the darts was incredible.

“We want to maintain that success and hope businesses in Bradford will support us by buying season tickets and maintain the feel-good factor from successful sport in Bradford.”

The top-flight club has so far sold about 6,500 season tickets for the new season and say an offer to buy tickets to nine games for the price of seven, with a deadline of Saturday, January 19, had been “very popular”.

Mr Sutcliffe said it was important as many tickets as possible are sold to ensure the Bulls, which was saved from the brink of liquidation by Bradford restaurant boss Omar Khan last August amid a cash crisis, remains on a sound financial footing.

“We have been thrilled with the generosity of businesses in Bradford who have sponsored us, but we still have a way to go,” he added.

“Obviously, the more season tickets we sell the better financial footing we are on.

“If companies buy season tickets for their staff, it will boost productivity and give their workforce a real feel-good factor. We really hope businesses in the city will get on board.”

On Monday, the Telegraph & Argus exclusively revealed the line-up of the first of three major pop concerts at the club’s Provident Stadium, which include 80s pop icons Rick Astley and Belinda Carlisle.

Ryan Whitcut, general manager at the club, said it was expecting a flurry of sales when the ticket lines open for priority sales tomorrow, before going on general sale on Friday.

“The line-up’s had a fantastic response so far.

“There’s a real buzz around the club at the moment, with the game at the weekend and the concert announcement. Everyone’s really excited.”

Priority tickets for the concerts will be available from the club’s box office, while general sale tickets will be available online.

Whinge, moan; moan, whinge.

Absolutely right - how dare people expect success in one sport to support success in another? Whinge moan - and how dare people think positives in one part of Bradford could lead to positives in another? Moan whinge - and are we really supposed to believe that anything positive could ever happen in the world? Whine, whinge, moan.

Awful reporting by T&A - moan whinge - what are they doing putting a positive story out? Whine, whinge - and terrible idea for a Bradford club to try and get supporters - whine moan - and everything's terrible - moan whinge - and everything's getting worse - whinge moan - and people should do something - whinge moan - so we can complain and mock when they do.

Moan, whinge, reasonable, whine, whinge, moan.

I'd like to know if Sutcliffe is buying all his parliamentary staff a season ticket if he's expecting businesses to do the same.

However he probably never sees his staff as all his energy seems to be directed towards the Bulls rather than his constituents.

Our abysmal performance in the game last night?? With a bunch of kids and fringe players?? Held a team from a division above up to the 70th minute and only conceded further when chasing the game and seeming as though League form dipping due to having almost played a full league season with 4 and 1/2 months left of this one to go.....Bulls as usual trying to leech off anyone and anything they can.

It doesn't bother me it is par for the course. Both the Bulls and Sutcliffe

Oh and good luck with your 'top' 'pop' concert. Who else you putting on the bill, PJ Proby??

Rick Astley and Belinda Carlisle, he has always been rubbish and she was only any ever good with her band the Go-Gos.

Rick Astley and Belinda Carlisle, he has always been rubbish and she was only any ever good with her band the Go-Gos.
Astley: Had a No. 1 hit single in 25 countries. Is the only male solo artist whose first 8 singles made the UK Top 10 chart. Record sales over 40 million. So clearly always been rubbish, then!
Carlisle: leaving aside that you're so ignorant of music, you don't even know the GoGo's re-formed, which would you say is a better yardstick, phenomenal international success, or you?

Ironic really, they're still working and selling tickets after decades, yet I reckon the real reason you won't be buying is you can't afford it as nobody will give you a job. But I'm a helpful kinda girl, they'll need plenty of stewards to stand with their backs to the turns. In the circumstances that should suit you. Maybe you should break the habits of a lifetime and apply for a job?

Sorry, I really won't have time, I am middle of debugging my mid range TWS scripts for implementation and will be busy from now until approximately November with the 2nd and 3rd line support both here and internationally for this project.

By rubbish I meant music quality, Astley was, is and always will be the darling of those with little musical taste, ie young girls and women with wet knickers who know no better. Bit like Mickey Bubble.

Belinda Carlisle sold-out to leave the Go-Gos to forge a solo career singing tunes to appease the Stock-Aitken-Waterma
n, as an old punk and seeing the Go-Gos in Frankfurt at a Rock Against Racism concert in 1980 I am more than qualified to cast my opinion. That and having a son in a current recording/charting band.

So glad you are helpful, any chance you could climb helpfully back into your box?

FYI Carlisle never had anything to do with Stock/Aitken/Waterma
n and her 1st solo album was so pisspoor, it was nominated for a Grammy. Oh, and 'twas Jane Wiedlin who left first. As an old rocker you should read BC's autobiography - you'd like it. She never "sold out". Though hopefully Odsal will.

Comprehension a weak point??

I also think you will find it was Elissa Bello who was first to leave but stayed a little more faithful to her roots and didn't release vacuous little girl pop as Carlisle did.

Also, The Go-Gos had many reformations but due to Carlisle being disliked because of her attitude to her past failed to regain the trust of the punk/post-punk community and never had the same success as other reformed bands of the era.

You think that those two acts and others like them will actually sell one ticket? Never mind sell out Odsal. I don't, please feel free to remind me of the drawing power they have when I'm proved wrong.

Do I think these acts "will sell one ticket"? Well, yes, I'm sure they'll sell plenty of tickets for the show. Already sold plenty and certainly more than 1, so you're wrong again. These artists all make a good living from touring, so somebody must buy tickets, wouldn't you agree?

But the point isn't whether tickets will be sold, but the needless way you dissed the Bulls' event, for no reason. You're clearly too superior to be sullied with pop music, and you clearly have contempt for its fans, but why did you feel the need to do that? What's your problem?

As an avid attendee of many of the punk/post punk band gigs, including Rebellion in Blackpool and the TOH/SOD annual event in Crewe I can firmly confirm my knowledge of the scene going back to 1979, punk just preceding my age to attend shows like Adam and The Ants at The Royal Standard etc.

Problem is pop music is bland and aimed at mass markets where people don't have to think, Astely being one of the worst examples of this ever, a promoted tea boy given a platform on looks alone.

Yes you are correct, I detest pop music and it's mindless followers but if The Bulls want to maximise profit by putting on music concerts at least try and attract acts that will create a buzz, not has beens from 30 years ago.

At least you get the joke, you want has-beens from 30 years ago, it's just you want the "has-beens" that YOU like!

But you give the game away by using that phrase. Most acts who bother with chart ambitions have only "been" for a short while, and then someone else is flavour of the month. I just judge by the music. A lot of what I listen to "never was" and "never will be" in your terms.

There's no problem with pop music, it is pretty much what it always was, it gets kids interested in music, that's what's good, and it produces regular gems, which stand the test of time.

"Mass markets where people don't have to think"?? Have you heard yourself? Music at the fundamental level is just to be enjoyed! "Have to think", my arrse.

Personally I like all sorts of music. In a few weeks I'm off to St. George's to listen to some more has-beens' music (Beethoven and Mahler mainly). You sound very much like most, sadly stuck in a narrow rut from when you were young and everything else is crap. Doesn't mean it is, though. And if millions around the world enjoy Carlisle, or Astley, or absolutely anything else, why not? To call them all "mindless" just makes you sound like a pretentious boor.

WinziipX not good enough then?

How about compressing 8 boolean values into an 8 byte array, using Assembler code.

Me, in favour of most things that people can drive some enjoyment from (Providing its legal)

Have a good day
Why on Earth would I want to use Winzip products when I write my own korn and bash shell scripts? Majority of external clients are command line unix experts and wouldn't thank me for deviating onto a lesser product. Especially as I wrote their unpacking scripts too.

Bit hard to even speak of Beethoven in the same breath as Rick Astley.

As an idea, how about trying to persuade the organisers of the Mela to hold the event there this summer, has far more going for it for an event such as that than the inner city parks do.

Car park space, off road in Richard Dunns, utilising the gravel pitches, brilliant motorway access, good public transport services, raised staging area and best of all the main men at the Bulls are an Asian businessman and a local politician, this could fly through and raise profit in an instant.

Alfucham, aren't you the clever one then. I was wondering where you were. At least non of your usual dyslexic drivel. Short and to the point. For you that's an improvement.

Pcbh, get a life, no one's interested in the fact that you are into trying to right your own programs. This is a good article, stating facts as they are. By the way city have sold quite a few season tkts to Bradford companies. Do you here Bulls fans moaning, NO.

*write....right is what people have to do to your sentences.

I thought my last addition to the comments was valid, try entice the Mela there, always busy, lots of potential extra revenue streams, low cost to stage it at the venue, brilliant access as you all stridently mentioned when the ground share reared it's ugly head again.

City may well have sold season tickets to local companies, I don't remember them having a begging article to do so. They used their own marketing department and contacts, ie paid for adverts, I'm surprised the T&A haven't told them to do one trying to promote the business by using a 'news' article.

Take out a back page spread or side ad to ask firms to use the tickets as a reward scheme.

I'm not anti-Bulls and am looking forward to the Super League starting up again soon, football has and always will be my thing but as an impartial spectator rugby league is a far more exciting sport to watch and doesn't have the amount of nancys that football does. I just do not like what appears to be and mainly always has appeared to be favouritsim towards the Bulls by both the T&A and the council.

They only ever become interested in City if City are bringing something to their table. Anyway, it is an age old argument and not the fault of the fans so pointless discussing much further, although I do welcome your response to the Mela suggestion. Personally think it is a brilliant idea and more workable at Odsal than VP due to space and parking etc.

Hmmm

Very eighties Korn and bash shell scripts written by unheard of wannabee windows event programmer (tried c# but was too 'modern'.)

Versus
leading edge super compression software designed with todays modern networking protocols in mind, written by paid, professional and trained programmers.

I know which I would choose and am beginning to suspect Bovine excrement being emitted.
