Sportsbet IO: An Active Sports Sponsor
Sportsbet IO made the headlines when it decided to sponsor some highly influential professional sports teams: Brazilian side São Paulo Futebol Clube (which plays in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A), and especially English Premier League mainstays, Southampton FC and Arsenal FC.
All three Sportsbet IO partnerships are new, of not brand new, as they were all signed in 2020-2021.
São Paulo Futebol Clube
This deal was concluded on July 9, 2021 and made the betting operator the biggest master sponsor in the history of the illustrious Brazilian football club. São Paulo were three-time Libertadores champions and won the Brasileirão (Brazilian title) six times. Sportsbet IO secured front and back of shirt sponsorship, including on women’s jersey, and the deal is set to last at least until the end of 2024.
Director of marketing at São Paulo, Eduardo Toni, was quoted as saying: “”It is with great joy that São Paulo Futebol Clube starts this journey with Sportsbet.io, a company with expertise in the international soccer market. May it be another victory in this trajectory.”
The deal, as well as the two others below, is officially labeled as an “Official Partnership.” Professional sports sponsorships weigh in the billions of dollars every year while amateur influencer sponsorship tends to struggle a lot more. This issue has been widely reported in recent press articles.
You’re not a true football fan if you don’t know who Arsenal FC is. Nicknamed “The Gunners“, the club has won 13 league titles (including one unbeaten title), a record 14 FA Cups, two League Cups, 16 FA Community Shields, the League Centenary Trophy, one European Cup Winners’ Cup, and one Inter-Cities Fairs Cup. In terms of trophies won, it is the third-most successful club in English football.
Needless to say, nailing an Official Partnership deal with Arsenal FC was quite the coup for Sportsbet IO, especially since the deal was concluded for a relatively long term: three seasons starting with the 2020-2021 English Premier League season. It remains to be seen what happens to this deal after the “shirt sponsorship ban”, which prohibits sports clubs from promoting online betting outfits like Sportsbet IO.
Can the deal be restructured for other promotional marketing efforts, off the team jersey? Who knows, only the future can tell. In the meantime, Sportsbet IO’s Official Betting Partner of Arsenal FC also plans to “to further integrate its unique betting platform within the global football landscape, underlining the two organizations’ shared values, focusing on innovation, fan experience and fairness.”
Arsenal Commercial Director, Peter Silverstone, commented as follows: “It’s been fantastic getting to know Sportsbet.io and learning about our shared spirit of innovation and the ground-breaking work they are doing in the fintech space. We are proud to partner with a market leading company that are at the forefront of the innovation journey of the gaming industry.”
But that’s the commercial director speaking, i.e. the “money man” who is in charge of bringing in as much revenue into the team coffers as possible.
Sportsbet IO’s affiliation with English Premier League side Southampton FC is clearly at risk as well, if not over already since it was signed for one year only, season 2020-2021. Yet, in early 2022, it was reported that the deal allowed both sides to “increase brand trust from 13% to 47%” with a branding strategy that is built on trust.
The media also reported that Sportsbet IO is tracking trust as a KPI (key performance indicator).
