Bulls sponsorship by provident has come to a not exactly surprising end given the circumstances. http://www.bradfordbulls.co.uk/

Time for a new stadium name? There are some shockers all the way up there in SL so I dread to think what we'll end up with.

To be fair, we've not done too badly with new sponsors since last season and I guess the owners knew the situation with Provident, so I wouldn't be shocked to find something was in the pipeline. Though it might well be that we've had all the good luck that we're due for this year..

I don't agree with Provident's product but as a sponsor I think they've been fantastic, especially in terms of fan engagement. Shame it's ended in that regard.

I might be mistaken, but the last year of the agreement has been good for both sides. The initial sponsorship payments were made to old company so having them as main club sponsor brought no financial gains for Cha-Lo.

The agreement that Provident would still appear on clothing and stadium meant they didn't necessarily lose out on all the investment and it allowed the New Co to find a new main shirt sponsor for much needed income. A win-win for both parties and fair play for them being grown up to accept this arrangement.

Can't think of many sponsors we have had that have interacted and promoted the club as much as Provident have. I understand that many had/have reservations about their business but I think it will be difficult to find such a good company to work with moving forward.

I'd echo most of the above, only to add they have been remarkably loyal to the club in a period where it would have been easy for them to walk away multiple times. I suspect with their own house not particularly being in order either sealed the deal for them.

I know they weren't on the shirts last year, but we’ve actually had a pretty good run of loyal shirt sponsors, 2017 and 2018 being the first time our main sponsors have changed twice in as many years since 2000. JCT600 and Provident each doing a hefty stint between them from 2002 onwards.

Now that we're in League One we'd be a good match for Compaq again.
