Until 2006, the club played in the Nigerian Premier League, but their owners announced plans to close the club by 2008. However, outgoing Chairman of the board of directors Mobolaji Johnson (a former governor of Lagos State) said in August 2008 that the company has steadied their finances and are prepared to fully fund the team in 2008/09.
In July 2010, the team was bought by seven private individuals. The club was renamed "Bridge Football Club". Bridge Football Club featured in the Nigerian National League (NNL) in the 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 seasons and finished third (3rd) and fourth (4th) respectively. The club have a staff strength of over seventy (70) including players and coaches of their academy 'BRF Academy'.
However, in Dec. 2012 just before the 2012 Nigeria National League season the team tried to sell their league slot to Ekiti-based Fountain F.C. They withdrew from the league when the sale fell through. This left their future participation in Nigerian football in doubt, but they participated in the 2013 Lagos State Federation Cup and joined the Lagos-based Private Professional Football League 'Metro Pro League' for the 2013/2014 season and finished second (2nd) in the maiden season of the elite private professional football league.
