BULLS have nearly hit their early bird target of 1,000 season ticket sales as the offer approaches its end on Monday.

An adult season ticket for the terrace at the Tetley's Stadium - their temporary home in Dewsbury in 2020 - is currently on sale for £199.

The club announced earlier this week that their season ticket prices will only increase by £10 after the deadline. but will not include the early-bird deal of a free Summer Bash ticket and entry into a draw for a free season ticket.

They have also introduced a new student price category and frozen the junior post early bird price offer.

It was reported last week that 730 season tickets had been sold and fans were told on Thursday that matchday tickets have decreased.

Adults (aged between 17 and 64) will pay £20 pre-book, £22 matchday price for terracing, while they will pay £24 for seating pre-booked and on matchday, reduced from £30 in 2019.

Luke Mawson, Bulls' digital and media executive, says the club are happy with the rise in sales and has encouraged supporters to stick with the team as they enter what could be a big season in the Betfred Championship.

He said: "The last seven to 10 days we have seen a real increase so we are heading towards the figure we have budgeted for.

"We have done well over 100 since last Monday, we could hit the four-figure mark by this time next week, if not earlier.

"We recognise that the prices were set by the previous board. As a reward for the fans sticking with us, we wanted to limit that increase as much as possible as a bit of a thank you to the fans.

"We have had a lot of feedback since the board came in that the junior prices are too high and we should be looking at them so we have took on board that advice.

"Stick with us, people are working hard to get a competitive squad together.

"We are looking to do a lot of work with the community to build that trust and are working really hard to get to where we need to be for the season."
