Winamax, a French online poker and sportsbook firm, has returned as FC Girondins de Bordeaux’s primary shirt sponsor.
For the year 2015 to 2019, Winamax, France’s largest online poker room, had previously branded the Les Girondins front of shirt.
Winamax will take over as FC Bordeaux’s main sponsor from Bistro Régent, a French leisure and hospitality company.
Before the start of the new Ligue 1 season on August 6, Winamax announced that it had initiated campaigns and content to reinvigorate the fervour of the Girondins faithful.
Furthermore, Winamax will support FC Bordeaux local and grassroots projects in order to aid the revival of football activities in the Gironde province, where FC Bordeaux is the largest sporting organisation.
Gérard Lopez, Club President of FB Bordeaux said: “The Club is proud to find Winamax as a major sponsor.
“The confidence and loyalty of this major player in online betting, in this very special context, is tremendous proof of the central place occupied by FC Girondins de Bordeaux in the landscape of French football.
“This agreement testifies to Winamax’s determination to support us in the development of the Club and its renewal. Together we will write a new page in the history of this historic Club.”
Julien Huber Marketing and Offer Director at Winamas said: “Winamax is happy to become the major partner of FC Girondins de Bordeaux for the next 3 seasons, just two years after a first successful collaboration.
“The looming season marks the start of a new era. Winamax is as proud as it is enthusiastic at the idea of supporting the Club, among the oldest in Ligue 1, in its new project.
“FC Girondins de Bordeaux has the full support of Winamax which wishes it, through its future victories and performances, to play again the leading roles within the elite of French football.”
