Published September 4, 2012
THE WEMBLEY OF THE NORTH: In Bradford, Hannah Postles reported that Khan spoke of his “excitement and exhaustion” after almost two months of negotiations and revealed a plan to build “the Wembley of the North.” Kahn said, “I want to create a sports arena. We have been talking about this for a long time, but nothing has ever been done. This is our chance to achieve this, and I will do this if this is the last thing I do.” He pledged to invest in the future of the Bulls, put it back on a “solid foundation” and urged the Bradford community to support his vision. Kahn said, “I believe we can make the Bulls a truly great club at the heart of our community. I want the fans and community to be at the heart of this club. That’s my vision. I’m very passionate about Bradford” (TELEGRAPH & ARGUS, 9/1).
