Betting, while still seen as illegal in many countries the world over has now slowly butsteadily started gaining recognition and value in its positioning as a game that is enjoyed by a section of the society. It is soon coming to the global spotlight, and people are actually enjoying the sport as they are supposed to.
One of the biggest companies that specialise on betting is Betway which has now come to the spotlight for their sponsorship deals with Mzansi Super League T20. With Betway now available in South Africa , we surely can expect many more similar deals in the near future.
A Look at the Betway Deal
Betway has signed a three-year deal and has agreed to become the official betting partner of the Mzansi Super League t20. The brand that is known for its betting portfolio the world over is now expanding by adding more cricket-based sponsorship in their collection. The tournament is supposed to take place in Johannesburg, Tshwane, Durban, Nelson Mandela
Bay, Cape Town and Paarl and is to be broadcast live in the United Kingdom, and the first rounds have already started providing a lot of action for the audience.
In fact, the former South African great, AB de Villiers who is also dubbed as MR 360 for his impressive hitting skills all over the park, hit fifty, impressing the local spectators. But it all went to vain as the Tshwane Spartans lost quite majorly to the Cape Town Blitz. The Nelson
Mandela Bay Giants, on the other hand, beat the Jozi Stars.
The seven-figure deal signed by Betway came about just after four months after the association of Cricket West Indies also known as the CWI confirmed that Betway was their official betting partner for both their men and women’s teams.
Anthony Werkman from Betway said that they are really pleased to be on board the team of a new t20 tournament that is new regarding both its look and feel. He also said that being involved as a partner globally shows that Betway has the necessary ambition to become known the world over as a supporter of professional sports. The elite players of the tournament, which includes some big names are just a start to their ambition. It certainly fits that bill.
Further, he added that he was entirely sure that the crowd will enjoy the games and that Betway as a company looks forward to delivering an experience that will be rich and excitable for the customers who join in to place their bets for the next three years.
The CEO of Cricket South Africa (CSA) Thabang Monroe said of the association with Betway that the board is thrilled and really happy to have a sport betting brand like Betway on their roster as one of their sponsors for the teams. He also said that he believes that through the sponsorship the company Betway is essentially committing to taking Mzansi t20
to the entire world with the help of the game of cricket.
