BULLS have revealed they have sold close to 75 per cent of their budgeted season ticket target.

With under a fortnight to go before the club's early bird deadline expires, the club yesterday stated that 731 tickets had been purchased.

Bulls have budgeted for 1,000 sales for a season which will see them move out of Bradford to play at Dewsbury's Tetley's Stadium.

Adult tickets cost £225 for seating and £199 for the terrace, and include a free Summer Bash ticket, while junior tickets have been cut to £99 and £49 respectively.

But those prices are only on offer until Monday, December 2 (5pm).

The club revealed their latest ticket sales on their website as part of their new 'Ask the Bulls' initiative in which they have pledged to answer questions from the public in an effort to improve communication and become more transparent.

As part of that they also state they hope to sign at least six new players for the 2020 Championship campaign - Greg Johnson from Salford and Anthony England from Warrington having been recruited so far.

There have been calls for an independent inquiry into the Rugby Football Club's handling of the Bulls in light of the club suffering three administrations and a liquidation in recent years.

Answering a question on whether the new regime would advocate such a move, the club replied on their website: "The new Board are fully and totally focused on actually improving the club position as of today, for the 2020 season and thereafter on planning on how we get the club back to Bradford.

"These are our number one and number two priorities. Matters and reviews from the past decade don't actually help us achieve these two priorities. We have only so much energy and resource and our top objectives are the here and the now.

"Explaining the previous ownership regimes is something the RFL would have to address, if it so wished. We would have no problem if they chose to do so. Anything that de-mystifies the last decade is absolutely fine by us if it helps everyone understand. But we also recognise that it is club directors who run clubs, well or badly, not the RFL.

"As (part-owner) Mark Sawyer said about the "Fit And Proper" persons test that the RFL enforce, they are just like the driving test. People pass them every day, but it doesn’t stop some people driving recklessly or negligently.

"People pass "Fit And Proper" all the time, but it doesn’t mean they run clubs well. We accept that the performance of the Bulls going forward will be the barometer to measure our own performance, not the RFL's."

The new regime's immediate focus is on stabilising the Bulls' financial situation, with

John Kear set to have a much smaller squad at his disposal next season in the Championship.

But the board maintain that getting the club back in the top flight is their long-term objective.

They state: "We think competing for Super League is definitely achievable. If you look at the size of our club then we would be a top six club in British rugby league. "That is definitely the objective, but it will come down to quality of the management, so a sustainable Super League club is a perfectly reasonable objective."
