Bulls' new ownership approved
Bradford were on Friday night pressing ahead with their plans for 2014 after the club's change of ownership was approved by the RFL.
The Bulls' new board of directors Mark Moore, Andrew Calvert, Ian Watt and Ryan Whitcut, together with chief executive Robbie Hunter-Paul, met with the RFL last week to discuss their business plan and proof of funding and have been formally given the go-ahead to run the club.
RFL director of licensing and standards Blake Solly said: "The RFL board is pleased to conclude the process and confirm the change of control has been approved. We look forward to working with the new board as they work hard to improve the position of the Bulls."
Whitcut and Moore took over the club last month when Omar Khan, who had taken Bradford out of administration 12 months earlier, announced he was stepping down due to ill health but were unable to make any signings until the move was ratified by the RFL.
Moore said: "We were confident that we had provided the governing body what they required to allow us to take control of the club but the formal ratification given to us today means we can carry on with the process of rebuilding the Bulls brand.
"I am sure there are exciting times ahead for all Bulls supporters, who can now purchase their season tickets with full confidence in the knowledge that the club will be in what is setting up to be the biggest and most exciting Super League season in its history."
