Bulls' Championship rivals Toronto say their Betfred Championship fixtures in 2019 will be beamed into 450 million homes in 36 countries.

The Wolfpack have announced a deal to make every home and away game available for Sky Sports to broadcast and are close to unveiling plans to spread the coverage to Canada and the rest of the world.

"Last year we were in 19 countries and 150 million homes and this year by the time we sign all of our distribution agreements, we'll be in 450 million homes and 36 countries," Toronto chairman David Argyle said at the Rugby Football League's official launch of the new season in York.

"It's about getting the game out there. It's an exciting game for people to watch and you've got to give people the opportunity to turn the TV on."

Bulls visit Toronto on Saturday, May 4 and the return clash in Bradford is on Sunday, August 4, while the two sides meet in a friendly at Odsal this Saturday.

The Wolfpack have made a big impact since they entered the English competition two years ago, winning promotion from League One at the first attempt and falling narrowly short of repeating the feat in the Championship.

Argyle, an Australian mining magnate who has bankrolled the club from the start, re-affirmed his club's willingness to cover the costs of flights and accommodation for visiting teams to Canada again this year.

He also revealed that, despite their failure to win promotion to Super League, the Wolfpack have not abandoned their ambition to take games to the continent.

Argyle had spoken on the eve of Toronto's defeat by London Broncos in the Million Pound Game last September of his desire to take Super League fixtures to Copenhagen and Dublin.

Those plans were put on ice and plans to switch a Championship "home" game to the home of Red Star Belgrade has also been shelved but Argyle says expansion is still in his sights.

"I think next year we'll be able to hit some of the other European cities," he said.

"There were so many things to do this off-season that we didn't have the depth in our front office to organise it.

"The will is to go to Belgrade, Dublin and Copenhagen and other places and take the game to other European cities.

"To do a game in Spain would be fantastic, so hopefully we'll be well organised to start the discussions now for the following season so we can have three home games away.

"We could have done it this year but there's a lot going on with a new deal with Sky, a new coach and heavy recruitment."

With the club's Lamport Stadium not ready to host games until April, Argyle confirmed that three of their home games would be taken "on the road" in the form of double headers at Hull KR, Newcastle and London Skolars.

Toronto, who are once again favourites for promotion, kick off their campaign under new head coach Brian McDermott at promoted York on Sunday, February 3.
