TOWN and Blackpool could have something in common before the end of the year.
That's because the Seasiders are in talks about bringing rugby league to their ground.
While Town and the Giants share the Galpharm, Pool have offered a new home to troubled Chorley Lynx, who could rise from the ashes and relocate.
Pool successfully hosted a one-off Oldham Roughyeds match this year against Batley.
Chorley, having announced they were folding, then contacted Blackpool over a possible groundshare.
"We are giving the appropriate consideration but it is still very early days," said football club director Peter Whitehead.
"If it were to happen it would be a case of Bloomfield Road being used as a venue.
"We wouldn't be running the rugby club and they would remain independent."
If the deal goes through, professional rugby league will return to the town for the first time since Blackpool Borough stopped playing in 1987.
