Wages deferred as Bradford FC battles on
Players and non-playing staff at Bradford Football Club have agreed to defer their wages yet again in a bid to give administrators more time to find a buyer for the beleaguered team.
Administrators Kroll said in a statement: ‘The joint administrators of Bradford City FC have agreed with playing and non playing staff to extend the deferral of wages until Friday 16 July.
‘The administrators would like to express their appreciation to both staff and players for agreeing to a further wage deferral, in order to allow discussions with interested parties and key stakeholders to continue.’
The relegated first division club has been on the verge of expulsion from the football league after piling up debts of £30m. It is currently in its second spell of administration since May 2002.
