Espanyol signs shirt sponsor, betting partner

Spanish LaLiga football club Espanyol has secured a shirt sponsorship deal with smart devices provider InnJoo and a regional deal with Asia-facing betting and gaming operator Vebet.com.

The InnJoo agreement will run to the end of the 2016-17 season, with company branding to appear on the back of Espanyol’s playing jerseys.

InnJoo will also benefit from a presence inside the team’s RCDE Stadium home. Both parties have an option to extend the partnership at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, although terms of the Vebet.com deal were not disclosed, Espanyol said the agreement will help the club gain exposure in Asia.

To mark the deal, Vebet.com has been running a special promotion in the lead up to tomorrow’s (Saturday) local derby match between Espanyol and Barcelona.

Espanyol is currently ninth in the 2016-17 LaLiga table.
