Bradford Bulls hope numbers will add up to more than 6,000
Robbie Hunter-Paul says the Bulls are aiming to surpass last year’s season-ticket sales figure as they gear up for the 2014 campaign.
Around 6,000 were sold for the season just ended but deputy-director Hunter-Paul is confident the club can achieve an increase next term.
Around 1,000 season tickets have already been sold on the back of the club’s BELONG campaign and Hunter-Paul believes that figure should increase significantly within the next fortnight.
He said: “We sold nearly 1,000 season tickets in the first week and, while sales have slowed in the middle part of the month, we expect things to pick up quite substantially towards the end of the month as pay-day approaches.
“We are hoping to add to that figure by at least a couple of thousand by October 4, which is the seat renewal deadline.
“After what has been an up and down year, in which a lot of lessons have had to be learned and restructuring put in place, we’re hoping to at least reach the season-ticket sales we got last year.
“But, with the promise of a better tomorrow, and the team that Francis Cummins is putting together, we believe we can go beyond last year’s figure.”
The Bulls have announced a wide range of incentives designed to encourage supporters to snap up season tickets as quickly as possible.
These include season-ticket holders having their name written on their own seat or on a plaque that will be placed over the players’ tunnel.
There are also opportunities for season-ticket holders to win an Ultimate Gameday Experience, where fans can enjoy a pre-match meal with the Bulls’ directors, meet Cummins and his players, watch the game from the sideline and attend the post-match press conference.
Fans who buy season tickets before October 4 are also entitled to a two-for-one offer on tickets for a concert to be held at the Provident Stadium on the second May Bank Holiday weekend next year.
Hunter-Paul added: “The initiatives we have launched in conjunction with season tickets are designed to give the supporters a sense of ownership in the club.”
The Bulls are to hold a Monster Truck and Firework Spectacular at the Provident Stadium on Saturday, November 2.
Meanwhile, Jobe Murphy has signed for Dewsbury for next season following his recent departure from the Bulls.
