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. They played their final 2008 home games at the University of Lagos after Onikan Stadium was shut down for the rest of the season. Berger temporarily relocated to Abeokuta for two years in 2004. 
In October 2010, the team was bought by the Lagos State government for approximately 500 million naira, despite a bid from West and Victor Ikpeba. The club was renamed "Bridge Boys F.C."
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. They did participate in the Lagos State Federation Cup.
