Sportsbet.io, a sportsbook of the Coingaming Group, are a leading cryptocurrency-based (Bitcoin) sports betting platform, who focuses on three core principles: Fun, Fast, and Fair.
As Southampton FC’s new main club partner for the 2020/21 season, the company will feature on the front of the first-team and Under-23 shirts.
Chief Commercial Officer for the football club, David Thomas commented: “Sportsbet.io has redefined the online betting space by combining cutting-edge technology with cryptocurrency expertise and a passion of offering its players with the ultimate fun, fast and fair gaming experience. They are fully committed to providing a safe place where people can enjoy their games responsibly, and have a world-class social responsibility team in place”.
This sponsorship marks the end of Southampton’s agreement with LD Sports, which terminated its agreement earlier this month. The team has also chosen to temporarily halt all sales of home, away and third kits to ensure fans receive shirts with the new branding.
Commenting on the agreement, Tim Heath, CEO of the Coingaming Group, said: We’re proud to be able to contribute to the Saints and support such a prestigious team which has been around for nearly 135 years!”
