Football clubs and bookmakers advertising
Which football clubs are sponsored by bookmakers? Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Serie A, Bundesliga - comparison.
Sports bets are connected to sport in natural way, that’s why nowadays bookmakers are more often becoming business partners of sports clubs. Bookmakers are present on the shirts of players, banners or official clubs’ websites. Currently a large number of important clubs in Europe has a bookmaking company as a partner. Thanks to that sports clubs are receiving a large amount of money, and bookmakers a large amount of players.
There is a tendency that players which are fans of a given club choose an offer of the sponsor. Thanks to this symbiosis it is worth to invest in football.
In such case does the credibility of a bookmaker increases if he becomes a sponsor of football club? Is he better than the others thanks to that? Years of experience in this industry don’t confirm that. Unfortunately marketing does not always to together with quality, not only in this industry. In our opinion few bookmakers do not merit good opinion, although are fully solvent. On Bettingwell we try in honest way to choose the ones which are good and not necessarily invest in many marketing actions.
