Bradford Bulls chief Robbie Hunter-Paul hails Hollinbay partnership

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Robbie Hunter-Paul Robbie Hunter-Paul

The Bulls have today announced a new and improved sponsorship deal with IT specialists Hollinbay – taking the partnership into a tenth successive year.

The branding of the Yeadon-based systems, support and service firm will feature on the Bulls' home and away playing jerseys this season, as well as throughout the Provident Stadium.

Hollinbay will provide sponsorship for new signing Luke George, in addition to providing the club with IT equipment and support for a further 12 months.

Bulls chief executive Robbie Hunter-Paul said: "This is a great step forward for Bradford Bulls as we move to unveil a fresh portfolio of major partners ahead of the 2014 campaign.

"We believe the partnership links in brilliantly with us being a family and community club."

Founded in 1994, Hollinbay are headed up by husband and wife pair Robert and Jacqui Harder.

Mr Harder said: "We have been a long-standing partner of the Bulls for a number of years now and we are delighted to see our agreement extended.

"We believe Bradford Bulls are a brand worth supporting and this is a very real partnership, where both parties benefit.

"This is a total partnership and we are delighted to be involved, upping our sponsorship terms and backing the Bulls for a further 12 months."

Hunter-Paul added: "The Harder family have been friends of the club for years and are very much a part of this club.

"Robert and Jacqui are massive fans of the sport and their son, Jack, works alongside the first-team squad."

Meanwhile, only the Provident Stand will be open for Sunday’s home friendly against Hull FC.

Tickets are priced £15 for adults, £10 for concessions and £5 for juniors while under-12s go free.

First of many, note upping sponsorship terms seems like there are firms out there willing to be part of the Bulls future only negatives in this story are the imaginary one the usual suspects will invent.
Watch out for further POSITIVE news soon.
POSITIVES,a nice word one thing the TROLLS don't like.

Many years ago when on a training course the question to the trainees was "how would you prepare to climb Everest?" The answer is the first step!
That's what the Bulls are doing to get the millions you talk about Mecca, taking the first step!

if there is a big announcement due then just give it to us; we all need some real good news not being drip fed these stories which really amount to nothing especially as the Club pay for the IT support provided anyway.

Nobody is suggesting this is the saviour of the club, or even that the other imminent announcements mean the Bulls are now in clover.

This is about creating a critical mass of sponsorship/partners
hips.

If I were Robbie I would start by giving out the smaller investments and spread them out building to "hopefully" the bigger ones once OK has departed the scene. Oh, maybe that is what he is doing. Silly me!

How predictable. Unless Robbie unveils a mega million sponsorship deal with Microsoft Corp together with huge personal investments by Richard Branson, Alan Sugar etc the naysayers will always spew ridicule... always will, always do! Thank you to the Harder’s; all genuine Bulls fans applaud your continued support of our Club as they will with all future investors.
