Latin American sports betting company Betcris has extended its existing agreement to act as its official gaming partner with the Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL).
The extension will see the two companies expand their relationship for another year, enabling Betcris to continue providing betting experiences on its various digital platforms to CEBL fans.
CEBL commissioner and chief executive officer Mike Morreale explained: “Extending the partnership with Betcris is an excellent example of working with a partner that values the CEBL, and the excitement and entertainment that the league brings both on and off the court.”
Under the terms of the current contract, the CEBL provides Betcris with real-time scores, game statistics, highlights, and player data via its FIBA LiveStats app. This data will help Betcris plan betting apps on every channel throughout this 2020 season to ensure fans have access to accurate data for league wagers.
Morreale further added: “As the online betting landscape continues to expand, we look to continuously provide our fans with additional entertainment options before, during, and after the game with a world-class partner like Betcris.”
The CEBL runs during the spring and summer seasons, offering professional basketball and entertainment of world class standard for all fans across seven Canadian cities. A new addition to the league, the Ottawa BlackJacks, comes in this coming season. This means the league now will have a total of seven teams, increasing the number of games from 60 to 75.
JD Duarte, CEO of Betcris has commented: “This renewal marks an important step in the growth of our operations, as it demonstrates our commitment to being a key player in the gaming industry. We’re proud to be partnered with the CEBL and look forward to a long and productive relationship.”
