StarCasinò Sport, the sports infotainment brand of Betsson Group, has signed a two-year sponsorship agreement with the ACR Messina football club, establishing itself as the Main Sponsor of the biancoscudata jersey for the 23/24 and 24/25 sports seasons. This significant collaboration cements StarCasinò Sport’s association with a historic Italian football club while furthering its mission to expand its footprint across multiple levels of the Italian sports world, building on partnerships with major Serie A teams such as AS Roma, SSC Napoli, Torino FC, Palermo FC, and Serie BKT. StarCasinò Sport now makes its debut in Serie C Lego Pro.
The announcement of this partnership coincided with the match between ACR Messina and Catania in the Italian Cup on 4 October, marking the first appearance of the StarCasinò Sport brand on the Giallorossi jerseys.
As the Messina club approaches 123 years of history, it remains an emblem of resilience, driven by an unwavering love for the sport. Throughout its century-old journey, the affection and warmth of the fans have always been a constant presence, supporting the Giallorossi players across all categories from the stands. This bond continues to drive the team towards new sporting achievements.
“We are proud to have established an agreement with a historic club like ACR Messina, particularly as the Main Sponsor. The city welcomed us with an enthusiastic and deeply engaged fan base, and we are eager to begin collaborating with the Club to provide unforgettable experiences for this vibrant community. This partnership represents another step in our commitment to enhancing and supporting Italian sports on various levels, as well as standing alongside territories and fans who share our sporting values. It’s a collective achievement we look forward to celebrating with our team and all of ACR Messina,” Stefano Tino, Managing Director of StarCasinò Sport, said.
“I am delighted by our new sponsor and also proud because an international brand has chosen to invest in Messina. This is a clear indication of the renewed enthusiasm surrounding the city’s premier football team. The two-year commitment underscores the confidence in the ACR Messina brand. StarCasinò Sport has been visible on the shirts of numerous Serie A clubs, and from today, it will also grace the ACR Messina jerseys. I wish to express my gratitude for this significant commercial partnership to Alessandro Giacomini, Managing Director of Infront Italy, Daniela Lazzaro and Saverio Provenzano, who represent Infront Italy in Sicily and Calabria. A special thanks also goes to Mario Bonsignore and his marketing team for their work in negotiating this agreement,” said ACR Messina President Pietro Sciotto.
This partnership not only solidifies StarCasinò Sport’s dedication to Italian football but also underscores our commitment to enriching the local community by bringing the thrill of the sport to fans, fostering unforgettable experiences, and collectively celebrating the enduring spirit of ACR Messina.
