Hull FC fan in peace, no agenda other than I live locally.

Apologies if covered elsewhere but heard some outlandish rumours today (from a random source) which can be summarised as;
RFL have agreed to sell Odsal for housing
Richard Dunn centre will be demolished and will house a new 12k seater for you guys
RFL also to relocate Red Hall to this site.

Sounds bonkers to me but the source, although nothing whatever to do with RL, generally has their finger on local property news. Sound crazy? :lol:

Who does then? If the council it might be a goer?

Sell Odsal for housing? Can they build housing on it with it being an old landfill site?

They can build houses on it.

Doesn't sound mad to me. RFL sell the lease to fund a stadium and Bradford council sell land to fund new sports centre.

Win win

The Bulls have to play there until 2019. Also the owners of the stadium will want a permanent tenant. And the council understands that 2 recognisable sports teams in Bradford are better than 1
Pollsters doing Excellent job - say recent polls.

That caveat was written by the council. If they stand to make some money out of a deal I'm sure they'll overlook it.
