THE Rugby Football League has given its backing to Marc Green, the brand-new owner of Bradford Bulls, who today completed a takeover of the club.
Mr Green (pictured above), a successful local businessman who owns, manages and operates an extensive, multi-million pound business portfolio, this morning acquired the club having agreed a fee and terms with the administrator, which was later ratified by the RFL.
RFL Director of Standards and Licensing, Blake Solly, said: “We welcome the announcement that the acquisition of Bradford Bulls has now been concluded, a move which brings to an end what has been an unfortunate period of instability for a club that can now face the future with renewed confidence.
“We are sure Marc and his staff will receive a warm welcome from the club’s supporters and indeed the whole Rugby League family.
“We would also like to place on record our thanks and appreciation to the official administrator David Wilson for the professional manner in which he handled this whole process.
“Whilst the considerable interest shown in purchasing Bradford Bulls meant that the administrator was unable to effect the sale as quickly as would have been ideal, the interest was also of sufficiently high quality to have provided some compelling evidence of the attractiveness of Rugby League clubs to investors and is a further endorsement of the appeal of the sport.”
