Bulls smash season ticket record &
launch e-tickets

Bradford Bulls Rugby Club have smashed their own Season Ticket sales record ahead of their Early Bird deadline on Friday 12th December leading into the 2004 campaign.

Since their launch on 20th October, Season Ticket sales have averaged 700 a week, re-enforcing the Bulls as Super League ?boom club? of 2003. ?Sales are up over 30% on the equivalent period last year?, reports Media Manager Stuart Duffy, ?and the club are particularly pleased with the success of the ?Recommend-a-Friend? referrals scheme which has increased the number of new Season Ticket holders by 125%.

?We are delighted with the success of our 2004 Larger than Life Season Tickets. The Club has just witnessed the most successful season in its history, winning the Tetley?s Super League Championship, the Minor Premiership and the Powergen Challenge Cup and feedback suggests supporters are also thrilled with the return to Odsal Stadium and the Bulls Experience, not to mention the mouth-watering prospect of Super League IX.

?Our Early Bird Season Ticket discount offers the cheapest way to watch the Treble Champions in action, and provides great value for money with four solid hours of innovative entertainment planned every Gameday?.

The Bulls have also today launched ?Bulls e-Tickets? which will allow supporters to purchase Season Tickets, game tickets and coach travel through the official Bradford Bulls website at www.bradfordbulls.co.uk

The bespoke online ticketing system has been created for the Bulls by e-business solutions provider NAK Corporate World which also powers the Bulls? website and online store and is aimed at making the process of buying a ticket to watch the Bulls in action as easy and convenient as possible.

Commenting, NAK Corporate World?s technical director Simon Cieciala explained; ?As well as local and regional support, people also travel from as far as London to watch the Bulls at Odsal, including many Australians and New Zealanders on holiday in the UK, so being able to securely purchase their tickets well in advance online makes planning and budgeting their visit easier. We have incorporated all the latest credit card security encryption devices so everyone using the new online service can be assured their card details will remain secure.?

?Getting big attendances on Gameday is the platform on which the Bulls? success is built? comments Stuart Duffy. As the Super League Treble Champions head towards 2004 with potentially eight thousand season ticket holders urging them on we are clearly well on their way to another record season, which will further enhance our position as the UK?s most successful Rugby Club.?

The UK?s most successful Rugby Club, Bradford Bulls, who are Tetley?s Super League Champions, Minor Premiers and Powergen Challenge Cup holders, have announced two pre season trial games against West Yorkshire opposition.
