Betway Looks To Grow US Footprint With NBA And NHL Deals

After establishing deals with seven teams across the National Basketball Association (NBA) and National Hockey League (NHL) ecosystems, global online gaming and betting brand Betway is looking to greatly grow its footprint in the United States.

The step reflects a “ever-growing commitment to sponsorship of the highest-profile teams in the highest-profile sports,” according to the company, which previously signed an exclusive brand licencing deal with Digital Gaming Corporation.

DGC alliance

As a result of its alliance with DGC, the firm has acquired market access in a number of US states, where it plans to use the Betway name for online casino and sports betting.

The Brooklyn Nets, Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, LA Clippers, and Golden State Warriors are among the NBA franchises for which the organisation has recently formed alliances.

Betway has also partnered with the four-time Stanley Cup Champions New York Islanders, as well as the Los Angeles Kings, to promote the company through in-game and other multimedia properties.

High profile sports

Betway’s CEO, Anthony Werkman, said: “It’s a very exciting time for the Betway brand as we enter the USA through our licensee partner DGC. We are delighted to have secured initial deals with six prestigious US sports teams. The deals are an extension of our existing focus to promote the Betway brand in high-profile sports shown around the world.

“Our branding will be seen courtside and rinkside in some of the biggest arenas in North America, bringing our customers closer to the action.

“Our brand is recognised globally as a leader in offering a fair, safe and responsible environment in which to place wagers and we look forward to US customers enjoying a similar experience.”
