Amayas online sports betting subsidiary BetStars has announced a new deal to become Official Betting Partner of reigning English Premier League football champions Leicester City Football Club for the 2016/17 season.
Under the terms of the new deal, Betstars will receive a full suite of rights, including LED advertising and fixed stadium branding, the use of the Leicester City club crest and player imagery in marketing and promotions, and access to some of the players. Betstars will also offer fans exclusive odds and promotions on Leicester City matches throughout the season.
