Betfair Extends and Expands Betting Partnership with Arsenal F.C.
By Brodey Sheppard - June 08, 2016
Online gaming operator Betfair has announced that it will be extending and expanding its betting partnership with English Club Arsenal FC.
Betfair Scores Arsenal Partnership Until 2019
Betfair and Arsenal signed an official partnership in August 2015, and now the football club renewed the deal for a further three years, seeing that the Betfair partnership extends until 2019.
The original deal excluded a number of markets, including the UK, Ireland, Italy and Russia. The renewed contract now adds the UK, as well as Central America and South America.
The renewed and expanded deal will give Betfair increased branding exposure at Arsenal’s home ground – the Emirates Stadium. If you want to read more about the history, statistics and players of the club, check out our ultimate guide to Arsenal, where we recap the last five years for the Gunners.
Optimism for the Next Three Years Ahead
Both Betfair and Arsenal have expressed optimism about the renewed partnership. Arsenal’s chief commercial officer Vinai Venkatesham stated: “We are delighted to be continuing our association with Betfair following a successful partnership to date. We look forward to working together to further engage Arsenal supporters.”
Betfair will have access to the first-team players if the operator plans to develop promotional and marketing activities for their best sports betting sites. Betfair can also engage with Arsenal’s broad support base through the Gunners’ extensive online and social media channels.
Betfair marketing and brand director Paul Gambrill said, “We’re thrilled to be extending our contract with Arsenal, after a hugely successful first season with the club.
“Arsenal are a fantastic club and we look forward to engaging with their incredible fan base again next season and beyond.”
