Powergen Challenge Cup winners Bradford Bulls will parade the Challenge Cup trophy at Odsal Stadium prior to their Super League match against Castleford Tigers on Sunday 11th May. The special parade will be led by club mascots Bullman & Bullboy and will feature Bradford stalwart and Welsh legend Trevor Foster amongst others.
The Bulls Experience begins at 3.15pm when the turnstiles open, and supporters will be treated to over 5 hours of entertainment, beginning with the Yorkshire versus Lancashire Junior Academy Origin Series match, which kicks off at 3.30pm, before the special Bullman?s Parade at 5.47pm, and live Super League Action at 6pm.
Outer-bowl entertainment includes the hugely popular Bulls roadshow, Bulli-oke contest, Buska-Bulls, and interactive attractions from Flamingo Land Theme Park and West Yorkshire Fire Brigade, while supporters who visit the BullZone area will be able to have their picture taken with the Challenge Cup trophy by the Bulls official photographer.
The club are expecting another bumper crowd to witness the latest Bulls Gameday at Odsal Stadium, and Bulls spokesman Simon Collinson said,
?We have received some fantastic feedback from both our own supporters and visiting supporters about the Bulls Experience, and again we have created a unique package of entertainment to cater for the whole family. Added to this the special Bullman?s Parade, and the unique opportunity for our supporters to have their photograph taken with the Challenge Cup trophy, and we are hopeful of another large crowd to celebrate the team?s achievements.?
The club will also be releasing a special edition of their Raging Bull Gameday Magazine featuring exclusive reviews, comments and pictures from the historic day in Cardiff.
