Dafabet signs up with Welsh FA for road to Euro 2016

The Football Association of Wales has agreed a three-year partnership with online betting and gaming company Dafabet.

The deal, which names Dafabet an official partner of the FAW, will cover next year’s Uefa European Championships in France and the period running up to the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia.

“Dafabet’s investment into Welsh football through the Welsh Premier League and now the national team shows their long-term commitment to football in Wales and we look forward to this exciting partnership,” Ian Davis, head of commercial and marketing at the FAW, said.

As well as the Welsh Premier League domestic competition, Dafabet has partnerships with English Premier League clubs Sunderland and Everton, Scottish Premier League champion Celtic and English Championship outfit Blackburn Rovers.

Wales last month ended its 58-year absence from major-tournament football by qualifying for next summer’s European Championships.
