OVER 80% of Bradford Bulls' season ticket holders have decided against a refund, in favour of using the funds to help the club.

After the 2020 Championship season was cancelled due to the pandemic, Bulls gave supporters the option to either request for their money back or kindly donate their season ticket to the club.

86% of the 82% of season ticket holders who filled in the survey decided on the latter.

The club say they will use the money to add to the recruits John Kear has already brought in for the 2021 campaign.

As for next year's season tickets, they won't go on sale until at least October.

Bulls put this statement out on their website: "Following the deadline for season ticket holders to return their entitlement form, the club would like to place on record its thanks to supporters for their responses and outline the findings below.

"82% of season ticket holders responded to the survey - which was sent out at the start of August - with 86% opting to donate their 2020 season ticket entitlement to the club.

"We appreciate the position the Coronavirus pandemic has left everyone in and are extremely grateful to those who have donated, whilst acknowledge and support those who requested a refund.

"Those who requested refunds for their 2020 season ticket will be contacted by the club and this process will be completed by the end of September.

"The generous donations have made a massive difference to our planning for the 2021 season, which includes further recruitment for John Kear to add to the impressive signings already made.

"In terms of the launch of our 2021 season tickets, these will not go on sale until mid-October at the earliest – once a date has been finalised this will be communicated through the club’s social media and email channels.

"All season tickets holders who responded will be contacted by the club over the next couple of weeks, we would once again like to thank you all and wish you the best of health moving forward."
