Robbie Hunter-Paul wants bumper crowd for Bradford Bulls' derby finale
7:00pm Friday 6th September 2013 in Sport
Bulls deputy director Robbie Hunter-Paul is hoping for a bumper crowd against his former club Huddersfield tomorrow evening.
Bradford’s gates have been down considerably in comparison to last year, with just over 8,000 on average.
Just over 7,000 turned up to the Provident Stadium to witness a dismal defeat to London but Hunter-Paul believes the club’s support is still strong.
“We’ve got quite a few players missing but it’s the last game of the season and we want to encourage as many supporters as possible to come along,” said Hunter-Paul.
“We can’t do it without the supporters and we have to try our best to engage with them.
“But you look at the Giants, who have 3,500 season-ticket holders, and they’re sitting top of the pile.
“That shows how good our support is considering where we are at the minute.”
The Bulls announced today that they had sold over 500 season tickets ahead of tomorrow's deadline to reach 1,000 sales in their BELONG 1000 CHALLENGE.
Assistant director Roy Davison said: “We are optimistic that our target can be achieved by the deadline of 3pm tomorrow and, to assist supporters, we are extending the deadline to be part of this until midnight on Saturday night.”
