Dynamo Moscow marks Premier League return with Marathonbet deal

Russian Premier League football club Dynamo Moscow has agreed a shirt sponsorship deal with betting company Marathonbet.

The three-year deal runs from 2017-18 to 2019-20 and grants Marathonbet brand exposure on the club’s shirts.

Marathonbet will also benefit from advertising space at Dynamo’s stadium and training facilities, as well as promotion across the club’s digital platforms.

Ekaterina Zemskova, a Marathonbet representative, said: “Dynamo Moscow is a club with a great history – it is the first Soviet champion, the first Soviet Cup winner. It is a brand recognised all over the world. 

“We have been partnering with sports clubs for a long time, with a portfolio now including Manchester United, Malaga and Hibernian. We are pleased to have such a prominent club as Dynamo joining these names.”

Dynamo finished the 2016-17 season as champion of the second-tier Football National League to secure promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking following relegation in 2015-16.
