Arsenal signs Official Betting Partner deal with VBET

Premier League football club Arsenal has signed a new partnership with online sportsbook and casino platform VBET.

Under the deal, VBET will become the Official Betting and Gaming Partner of Arsenal for the next three years, until the end of the 2022-23 season.

According to an official statement at Arsenal.com, the partnership will allow VBET to produce exclusive content featuring first-team players and club legends.

Fronted by former Arsenal player and VBET ambassador Ray Parlour, the global betting brand will leverage its access to the first-team squad to create a bespoke content series.

VBET will also become the Official Presenting Partner of The Breakdown, a content series in which former Arsenal player Adrian Clarke offers tactical and statistical analysis of matches.

UK-based gaming software developer BetConstruct supplies technology to the VBET platform.

BetConstruct was previously an Arsenal sponsor, having signed as the club’s Official Gaming Software Partner in February 2016.

VBET is one of BetConstruct’s longest standing partners. BetConstruct has supplied VBET’s entire product line-up – including all sportsbook and casino games – for over a decade.

The VBET platform is owned and operated by Vivaro Limited, a company incorporated and registered in Malta since 2008.

Vivaro Limited is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission under a remote operating license.
