Betting Companies Increase Sponsorship in The Premier League & La Liga

Over the past several seasons there has been somewhat of a shift in the industries involved in sponsoring football teams and appearing on the front of the shirts. The kit sponsors used to be dominated by the financial services, electronics and the automotive industry, however nowadays we see more betting companies appearing on football club’s kits. This increase has ensured that clubs are getting record-breaking deals year-on-year, as betting companies try to entice punters to play online, while betting comparison sites such as the BettingLounge, offer bonuses for the main brands on their site.

These major gaming and betting companies have seen the benefit of having a major team advertising their brand and this looks to continue.
