Austrian Bundesliga extends with title sponsor

Sports betting and casino games provider Tipico has renewed its title sponsorship of the Austrian Bundesliga, the top tier of club football in the country.

The league will continue to be officially known as the Tipico Bundesliga for at least the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons after the company agreed a new two-year deal with the option of a third.

Tipico has title sponsored the league since the 2014-15 season. It replaced Austrian gaming company Tipp3 in the role.

Marlon van der Goes, Tipico chief commercial officer, said: “Our engagement in Austria has been promoting local football since 2014 and we are proud of that. We look forward to the coming seasons and with the league reform to a new chapter in the Tipico Bundesliga.”

Tipico is also a sponsor of the German Bundesliga and 2.Bundesliga competitions, as well as Bayern Munich.
