Sunday, November 6, 2011 : Interapuestas takes over from 12Bet
Interwetten's Spanish-facing website Interapuestas.com has become Spanish professional football Club Sevilla FC's newest sponsor.
Sevilla's previous sponsor 12Bet.com declined to renew its sponsorship earlier this year citing uncertainties regarding licensing and taxation in the Spanish online gambling market.
Interapuestas.com will enjoy advertising at all matches played at the Sanchez Pizjuan stadium utilising billboards and the scoreboard as well as having a strong presence on the club's website.
José María del Nido, president, Sevilla FC said: "Sevilla FC has grown in recent years surrounding itself with big companies that are also full of ambition and want to grow at all costs. We are satisfied with the agreement reached with Interapuestas.com, because it is an international company like us, success has come from below and it is today the industry leader in online sports betting at European level and has a presence in over 70 countries … The fact that its website is translated into nine languages says it all."
"For many years we have been industry leaders in the Spanish market and cooperation with Sevilla FC, a top international club, certainly strengthens our position," added Birgit Bosch, managing director of Interapuestas.com
