The Bradford Bulls rugby league side have been liquidated.
The administrator promised there would be a a decision today on the club's future and after talks with one remain bidder broke down last night staff have now been told the company has ceased trading.
They have all been served redundancy notices.
Several parties engaged in a process to acquire the Bradford Bulls, but that has ultimately proven to be an unsuccessful exercise. Due to non-disclosure agreements, what can be divulged is strictly limited.
However, the RFL has announced that there will be a Bradford rugby league side in the city and have invited interested parties to come forward.
