Overview

The Bulls are one of the longer established American football teams playing in the United Kingdom, having been founded in 1983. The Bulls field a senior team in the BAFA National Leagues Premier North Division, as well as a youth team, and a junior team in conjunction with the Birmingham Lions and the Sandwell Steelers. The Bulls are one of the most successful teams in British American Football,[1] winning 4 British titles and 19 conference championships.

In 1989, the team were reported to have turned down the offer of a tour of South Africa, estimated to be worth 100,000 dollars. [2] [3]

The team won their third British football championship in 1991, beating the London Olympians 39-38.[4] [5] [6]

The team represented the UK in the inaugural Eurobowl, where they placed third.

In 2013, the Bulls celebrated their 30th anniversary[7] and reverted to the use of their original logo.
