Omar Khan and Gerry Sutcliffe new owners of Bradford Bulls
Bradford businessman Omar Khan and former Sports Minister Gerry Sutcliffe are the new owners of crisis-torn Bradford Bulls, it has been revealed tonight.
The restaurant owner and Bradford South MP will be officially unveiled as the famous rugby league side’s new owners at its Super League clash with Hull FC at Odsal tomorrow evening – marking the end of a protracted saga to save the club from liquidation.
But Mr Sutcliffe, honorary chairman of Mr Khan’s bid, said the club’s future in the top-flight has not yet been secured and negotiations will continue next week.
He said: “We have saved the club from liquidation and are happy to have saved it.
“We look forward to working with the fans and everyone who cares about sport in Bradford. We look forward to continuing our negotiations regarding Super League status next week.”
