Arsenal Welcomes Bodog as Official Partner

Fri 16th Aug 2013 | Football Sponsorship

Following a successful 2013 pre-season tour to Indonesia, Vietnam and Japan, Arsenal welcomes Bodog as its Official Asian Betting Partner in a three year, multi-million pound deal.

The partnership affords Bodog rights to capitalise on the Gunners’ Asian fanbase and popularity post tour by connecting with millions of supporters in Asia, a region of strategic importance to the betting company.

As part of the deal, Bodog will also have the opportunity to develop marketing initiatives and consumer promotions,  generate content  with Arsenal first-team players  and utilise the Club’s database to provide fans in Asia  with tailored betting offers around matches.

Vinai Venkatesham, Head of Global Partnerships at Arsenal said: “Our tours give our fans beyond the UK a great opportunity to see the team in action, and this Asian tour was no different with our first-team squad playing in front of hundreds of thousands of passionate supporters.

“As our fanbase in Asia continues to grow rapidly, working in partnership with companies like Bodog who have long-term roots in the region, provides a strong platform to further engage with Arsenal fans in Asia.”

Izhar Biran, Bodog’s Marketing Director added: “The Premier League’s popularity in Asia is well documented and some clubs have been quicker than others to realise that potential. Arsenal has been particularly pro-active in the region for a number of years and the recent tour only serves to highlight that point.

“The trust and loyalty both Arsenal and the Premier League stand for makes this the perfect partnership to continue the phenomenal growth of the Bodog brand in Asia.”
