UD Ibiza has a new sponsor and it is bookmaker Betsson. Both parties have informed this Thursday about the agreement that will unite them from now on and throughout the 2020/2021 season. Undoubtedly, this are great news for UD Ibiza, which is immersed in the playoffs for promotion to the Second Division that will begin this weekend.
The rapid growth that the club has shown is what has motivated the Swedish giant to join their paths to be the main partner of UD Ibiza.
"We are two brands with great potential and that is why we have decided to get together. The UD Ibiza is a club that has been working very well and we hope that soon they can make the leap. The Ibiza brand is very powerful worldwide and with this alliance we are sponsoring the coolest club in the world," says David Plumi, Managing Director of Betsson Spain in the statement issued.
In the official note, Betsson highlights the values of fun and entertainment that the company shares with the Unión Deportiva Ibiza. "Betsson is committed to gaming as a form of leisure, always referring to responsible consumption. We want our clients to come to our platform to have a good time, playing in a recreational way," adds Plumi.
Betsson, the Swedish online gaming giant, is one of the leading sports betting houses and already has experience in Spanish football with his ambassador, the ex- player from Seville and Real Madrid and now coach in the Valladolid youth team Julio Baptista. Also, the company increased its international investment in 2020 by acquiring a majority stake in the Brazilian betting operator Suaposta.
Ibiza is a club re-founded in June 2010 by a very ambitious new board of directors, whose mission is to consolidate a serious, sustainable and long-term project.
