Thursday September 13, 2012 : INTERWETTEN ON SEVILLA FC SHIRTS
Online gambling firm expands relationship with club
Interwetten's Spanish-facing operation has entered into a shirt sponsorship deal with Sevilla FC shortly after receiving its operating licence from the Spanish online gambling authority.
Under the terms of the deal Interwetten's name will be emblazoned on the front of the team's soccer shirts but interestingly only until the club can close a deal with a brand from a different industry.
Interwetten previously operated in Spain under the brand name Interapuestas who previously served as Sevilla FC's shirt sponsor.
José María Del Nido, president of Sevilla FC said: " For Sevilla FC it is extremely important to rely on sponsors with such an influence as Interwetten has in a rising industry as the sport betting. We are also aware of the great effort made by Interwetten in order to become one of the authorized brands to be able to operate in our country, once the industry has been regulated by the Spanish Government. Therefore, it is even more valuable, if that's possible, that the trade relations started seasons ago had now consolidated with this sponsorship for the new season."
