The Bulls were announced on February 23, 2012 by the GMHL. They are the namesake of the old Bradford Bulls Junior C team that which became the Bradford Rattlers. The Ratters and Bulls will play out of different arenas in Bradford, but will finally give the Rattlers a true geographical rival.
The Bradford Bulls first regular season game was on September 16, 2012 in Bradford, Ontario, Canada. The game was on the road against the cross town rivals the Bradford Rattlers. The game resulted in a 6-2 loss for the Bulls but the Bulls had its first goal in GMHL franchise history. The first goal was scored by #2 Clint Zumer and assisted by hometown boy #22 Justin Tucker.
On March 26, 2013, the Bradford Bulls won the GMHL playoffs in a 4-games-to-1 series victory against their hometown rival and defending champion Bradford Rattlers. The Bulls finished the regular season first place in the South Division, fourth overall and three points out of second. The faced the Knights of Meaford in the first round and swept them 3-games-to-none. In the second round, they swept territorial rival Alliston Coyotes 3-games-to-none. Instead of a division final, the league elected to do a divisional crossover and the Bulls had to face the second seed from the North, the Temiscaming Royals. The Bulls took the series in a four game sweep and were set to face the Rattlers in a "Sidewalk Series" as they knocked off the first seeded Seguin Huskies. Although the Rattlers gave the Bulls their only loss of the playoffs, it was not nearly enough as the Bulls took their first league title in two years of existence.
