Bulls secure vital sponsorship deal

Muslim owned Bradford Bulls have secured a four-year sponsorship deal with money lenders Provident Financial thought to be worth £1.2million as they put their financial troubles behind them.

The deal, unveiled at a press conference at Odsal this afternoon, is believed to be a Super League record and will safeguard the future of the club, which went into administration in the summer. 

The sponsor’s name will appear on the Bulls’ shirts and, as part of the agreement, Odsal will be renamed the Provident Stadium. 

Bradford honorary chairman Gerry Sutcliffe said: “It’s great news for the club and the city and the sponsors. 

“In these difficult economic times to get sponsorship of this level which secures the club’s future for the next few years is really important.”
