Bradford Bulls have been granted a new Super League licence for 2014, the Rugby Football League has announced.
The Bulls were given only a 12-month provisional licence last September after being taken out of administration by local businessman Omar Khan and Bradford MP Gerry Sutcliffe.
Now they have been put on the same footing as the other 13 Super League clubs, whose current three-year licences expire at the end of next season.
“The Bulls have been granted an extension of the year-long licence they were awarded in September 2012,” said the RFL’s director of licensing and standards Blake Solly.
“The new licence expires at the end of the 2014.”
