Racing and wagering firm Solbet has concluded a two-year sponsorship deal with Club Universitario de Deportes in Peru. Under the terms of the contract the name of the betting company will be on the back of the jerseys.
The Solbet logo will appear below the numbers and will be used in all games played by the squad at national and international level, as well as mates, according to the Peruvian First Division manager.
The agreement between member of the Sun International community and Universitario will also give exclusive benefits to team members, who will be able to connect with and access promotions with a special code on the Solbet website.
Solbet general manager Juan Pablo Uribe said: “It’s an honour for us to be part of the ‘crema’ family and we’re sure that together we will carry out big and successful projects for the benefit of the team and the fans.
“We know that Universitario is a leading team in the country and has millions of fans who support them unconditionally, which is why we’re prepared to receive them on solbet.com with bonuses in our online casino and sports betting verticals.”
The administrator of Universitario Carlos Moreno Grández said: “The Solbet company comes to Universitario because we are the largest team in Peru. Despite the difficulties, the ‘U’ continues to build confidence and there is faith that things will improve for the club. It is time to look forward.
“The sponsorship deal is for 2020 and 2021, and today we can finally call them an official sponsor. Now, the challenge lies on the fans visiting the Solbet site and placing their bets on the winner — always Universitario.”
Late May Solbet signed another Peruvian sponsorship deal that positions the brand as FBC Melgar’s new sponsor. The logo would appear on the back of the team’s jersey just as the Universitario contract did.
