Newcastle United, the Premier League football club has expanded its existing relationship with Fun88, ensuring that the betting and gaming operator remains the primary partner of the club since a new long-term commercial agreement has been signed.
Under the terms of the new agreement, Fun88 will continue to feature on the front of players’ shirts and training wear, which has boasted a presence on first team kit for three years.
Lee Charnley, Managing Director of Newcastle United stated: “We are delighted Fun88 has renewed its relationship with Newcastle United and committed its support to the club over a number of years to come.
“Building on the success of our partnership to date, we look forward to this next phase and working together to engage fans and grow our collective reach around the globe.”
Founded in Asia in 2008, Fun88, which offers multi-language sports betting, live casino, slots, and keno games, is striving to strengthen its global online presence.
A spokesperson for Fun88 has said: “Fun88 is delighted to continue its association with Newcastle United Football Club.
“Together with the club, we live the dream of expanding our fan base across all continents, especially in Asia.
“Fun88 is optimistic that this partnership will assist us in becoming the leading gaming and entertainment platform in countries across the world.”
Newcastle United is currently sitting 13th at the Premier League table, having secured two wins, two drawings and three losses since the start of Project Restart last month.
They went to Brighton and Hove Albion for their penultimate season game Monday evening, before ending the campaign at home to runaway champions Liverpool.
We are thrilled to continue our association with @NUFC for years to come.
It has been our pleasure to sponsor this great club for the last three years and we’re looking forward to a very exciting future!
