Cash-strapped Bradford City will discover their future at a Football League board meeting on 8 July.

The Bantams, who were relegated to Division Two last season, are said to be 36m in debt and unsure where they will be playing home games next season.

They hope to satisfy the League they can make it through next season.

"They have received the financial information from the administrators and in general seem happy with its content," the club's website said.

"However they are keen to see a resolution as to where the club will play its home games next season along with clarification as to where any shortfall of funding will be met."

Bradford managing director Shaun Harvey added: "It was pleasing to receive a warm reception from both the Football League and its member clubs who all want to see Bradford City survive."
