THE BRADFORD Bulls Foundation have announced they will be staying in the city and will continue to deliver rugby league and multi-sports activities to local communities.

While Bulls are due to leave Odsal and plan to play at Dewsbury Rams for the next two seasons, the Foundation have stated they will remain fully active in Bradford.

Warren Evans, Chair of Trustees for the Foundation, said: “While we are obviously disappointed with the recent developments which mean the club is to temporarily play games at the Tetley’s Stadium in Dewsbury, the Foundation understands that this decision has not been taken lightly and will help to ensure the long-term sustainability of our historic club.

“The Foundation’s role will become even more critical and we will work closely with the club to ensure that the Foundation’s visibility throughout the district will be used to maximum effect, helping the club to see its plans to fruition, supporting its fantastic supporters and engaging the fans of the future.

“The trustees and staff of the Foundation very much look forward to Bradford Bulls’ return to the city and we will do everything we can to make it feel like they have never been away.”

The Foundation, which is the club’s official charity, has always played an incredibly important part in encouraging participation in rugby league, signposting talent to community clubs and helping to ensure playing talent is nurtured.

The Foundation will continue to work in partnership with schools, community clubs, voluntary groups, the public sector and businesses to provide high quality courses, assemblies, coaching and healthy recreation to people of all ages, including their school holiday camps.

Other priorities for the Foundation are the promotion of mental health awareness and mental health well-being; healthy eating; physical health and fitness; anti-drugs awareness; anti-bullying messages; and extra-curricular education which promotes the personal, mental and social well-being of our young people.

The Bulls Foundation has a great deal of experience and expertise in social impact activities and welcomes the opportunity to help local business deliver their community support objectives. Please contact Paul Mitchell at for more information.
