12Bet maintains taekwondo commitment for World Championships

Online betting brand 12Bet has agreed to sponsor the 2019 World Taekwondo Championships, which take place in the English city of Manchester from May 15-19.

The company will serve as an Official Partner of the Championships, which are being held in the UK for the first time at Manchester Arena.

The partnership between GB Taekwondo and 12Bet was brokered by the Sport Collective agency.

12Bet spokesman Rory Anderson said: “We have previously sponsored two taekwondo grand prix events in the UK and we have seen the benefit so it’s great that we are now an Official Partner of the World Championships. Taekwondo is an exciting sport and has a global audience that our customers are a key part of.”
