Championship rugby league club Bradford Bulls has revealed season tickets will only increase by £10 following its early-bird offer due to a “surge in sales.”

Tickets for adults cost £199 until December 2 when they will increase to £209, though the post-deadline price does not include the offer of a free Summer Bash ticket and entry into a draw for a free season ticket.

The Bulls, who will temporarily play at the 5,100-capacity Tetley Stadium in 2020, have also launched a new student price category, while junior season ticket prices have been frozen post early-bird offer to reflect the club’s commitment to attracting youngsters to rugby league.

The club revealed last week that 731 season tickets had already been sold and that they have been budgeting for 1,000 passes sold.

The club said in a statement: “Following consultation between the Board of Directors yesterday evening and encouraging ticket sales heading towards the deadline, we have worked hard at restricting any increase post Early Bird.

“The original prices were set by the previous Board and we have focused on what we could alter in accordance with the budgets previously agreed with the RFL.

“We feel our ticket prices are affordable and allow the club to be sustainable moving forward and reflect reasonable value for our aims next year. A surge in sales have seen us head towards our budgeted sales and we look forward to seeing our loyal supporters pack out the Tetley’s Stadium in 2020.”
