In addition to this, the Austrian betting company also announced that it will work together with UEFA to promote responsible betting and combat match fixing. bwin will also get access to tickets and hospitality to create experiences for its own customers.

The Entain-owned company will also be acquiring licensed footage from the Europa League and the Europa Conference League, which it will then use on its own platforms. bwin will also launch its ‘betresponsbly.info‘ website to provide details of safe gambling tools.

 

Talking about the partnership, Guy-Laurent Epstein, Marketing Director at UEFA, said:

As a brand that defines itself by being in touch with fans and their passion for football and clubs throughout Europe, bwin is a great fit for our competitions.

The partnership with bwin allows UEFA to engage more openly with the sports betting sector, giving greater access to market intelligence and support from both a sports integrity and commercial perspective. bwin is the world leader in responsible sports betting with a rich and long-standing tradition of partnerships in football, supporting clubs, federations and competitions worldwide. Their vast experience with sponsorship activations will be an invaluable contribution for both competitions.
