About the partnership
According to Lukas Baek, The English club has entered into a three-year sponsorship deal with Sportsbet.io. The contract is reportedly worth £1.5 million per season. This is not the first English club that Sportsbet has tied hands with, as it also sponsors tier2 Championship team Watford, who were relegated from the top division in 2019-20. This is also not the first instance Arsenal FC has joined hands with a cryptocurrency-related entity, as it has previously promoted CashBet’s initial coin offering in their stadium. Arsenal also had a record number of 5 gambling/sports betting partners during the 2018-19 season, which included the likes of Tempobet, Betfair, and 12Bet. As a result of this partnership, Sportsbet.io can leverage Arsenal’s huge global reach, which includes an 80 million-strong follower base.
The partnership will also help SportsBet.io to harness Arsenal’s iconic status in women’s football and apply that to Estonia. Arsenal’s coaches will deliver football clinics to the under-19 women’s football team of Estonia as part of the deal.
