Queens Park Rangers football club (QPR) has announced a partnership with sportsbook platform CopyBet, starting from the 2022/23 season.
The collaboration sees CopyBet become the official betting partner of the EFL Championship team, whilst the bookmaker’s branding will also feature on the back of the first team’s playing shirts.
“We are excited about this new partnership with CopyBet,” said 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.”
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.
Anton Ivanov, Business Development Director, CopyBet UK, added: “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.”
Late last year, QPR continued ties with similar firms after naming online casino TebWin as the club’s official betting partner for the 2021/22 season.
The collaboration saw the blue and yellow logo displayed around QPR’s Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, alongside other promotional material.
Last week, it was reported that plans for a gambling sponsor ban on football shirts had been unsettled as due to news to suggest 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.
