Worcester Warriors will consider leaving the city – if it helped the proposed sale of the club, who are currently bottom of the Premiership.
Warriors chairman Bill Bolsover told BBC Hereford & Worcester that the idea of leaving the city is “a long shot”.
But he also did not categorically dismiss a Wasps-style move elsewhere, if owners Sixways Holdings Ltd sell.
“We’re going through the process of selling the club in total, rather than by investment,” said Bolsover.
“That has not been discussed in any detail. No-one has said that’s what they want to do. I think that would be a long shot. But, until I have got an offer on the table I don’t know whether it’s in or out.
“If we happen to go down that route, which is highly unlikely, then we would have to look at the rules within the PRL (Premiership Rugby Ltd) as to exactly what we can do. I think there are one or two.”
