Santos FC has renewed its contract with online sports betting operator CasadeApostas until the end of the Brasileirão 2020 campaign.
As a result of the deal, CasadeApostas will continue to be a front-of-short sponsor on the club’s home and away kits along with Philco, Oceano B2B, Grupo Foxlux, Kodilar, Kicaldo, Unicesumar and Orthopride.
Hans Schleier, Santos FC’s partner manager has highlighted that the extension was carried out by global sports and betting data provider Sportradar.
He stated: “Sportradar actively participated in the entire process, which has been essential to guarantee the interests of the company and the team,”
“CasadeApostas recognises not only the popularity of football, but its importance in our society. The affinity of the fan with a club is part of their personality, and that’s why the company decided to continue being part of Santos’ history.”
The football club first struck its main partner deal with CasadeApostas in May 2019 and since being active in Brazilian markets last year the operator has agreements with Botafogo, Esporte Clube Vitória and Esporte Clube Bahia.
Marcelo Frazão, Marketing and Communication Director of Santos FC, added: “We always value these sponsorship deal renewals, they are a sign of investment success, a recognition of our work, an appreciation for our platform and an opportunity to innovate and improve for the benefit of the fan.”
“We appreciate the sponsor’s trust at this very delicate moment for all sectors of the economy, including the football industry.”
The 2020 Brasileirão Série A campaign was originally scheduled to conclude on December 6, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the competition was rescheduled. The tournament officially commenced on August 8 with it ending in February 2021.
