CopyBet has secured a deal in becoming the official betting partner of Queens Park Rangers Football Club (QPR), starting from the 2022/23 season.
CopyBet’s collaboration with the EFL Championship team will see the bookmaker’s branding feature on the back of the first team’s playing shirts.
Anton Ivanov, Business Development Director, CopyBet UK, stated: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Queens Park Rangers. As passionate football supporters we are extremely happy to be involved with such a historic English club. It is set to be an exciting season for CopyBet working with QPR.”
The sportsbook offers odds for both pre-match and in-play betting with over 18,000 events daily, whilst also boasting ‘exclusive enhanced prices’ around major football matches, including the Premier League, Championship and the Champions League.
Additionally, new QPR fans that sign up have been promised a no-deposit £5 free bet to place on any of the club’s matches throughout the season.
“We are excited about this new partnership with CopyBet,” added Euan Inglis, QPR’s Commercial Director. “Their model is very different to others in the marketplace with their innovative use of Tipsters.
“Anton and the team at CopyBet have been a pleasure to deal with as we embark on this multi-year partnership, which will include a number of creative, collaborative initiatives.”
The news shortly follows last week’s reports that plans for a gambling sponsor ban on football shirts had been unsettled as due suggestions that the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) proposals could be watered down.
Now, the government is instead expected to adopt bet limits between £2 and £5 on online slot machine and casino games, and affordability checks to ensure bettors do not take things too far.
