Bradford (Park Avenue) chairman Gareth Roberts has said the club’s new Horsfall Stadium project has been continuing despite the huge disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic.
An update was provided from Roberts this afternoon, which states: “Firstly, we plan to take care of our staff and players and we are working through the initiatives that the government has proposed so that they can be paid. Obviously, like a lot of clubs around us, we have lost revenue because of the cancelled matches.
“Secondly, there has been a tremendous effort behind the scenes to put together the new Horsfall Community Stadium project. Despite all the disruption from this virus we are still moving forward with our plans.
“It is still too soon to say that it is a done deal but we are very optimistic that it will get done. I would like to thank all of those who are working on this project for their enthusiasm and skill in getting it this close to the line.”
