Gareth Roberts has pledged his support to accommodate Bradford Bulls at Horsfall Stadium if they decide to leave Odsal.

The Bradford (Park Avenue) owner is close to sealing a 35-year lease agreement for Horsfall from Bradford Council, while the future of Odsal remains uncertain.

Bulls chairman Andrew Chalmers has imposed an internal deadline of Thursday for a decision to be made about where his club will be based next season, with the current high costs of playing at their historic home proving a big financial burden.

Moves to Dewsbury Rams or the Bantams’ Valley Parade have been considered, but Avenue’s Horsfall Stadium appears to be the most likely alternative venue if Bulls opt to leave Odsal but remain in the city.

Roberts said: “From our point of view, we think we could work something out.

“There are other considerations though that we’re not in control of and the council would have to be okay with any such move.”
