Fulham nets record Marathonbet deal

English Premier League football club Fulham has announced a record two-year shirt sponsorship deal with online betting company Marathonbet.

The deal, which Fulham said is the biggest in the club’s history, will display the Marathonbet logo on the playing shirts worn by the London outfit’s first team and its Under-21s for the next two seasons, with an option on a third year. The value of the agreement was not disclosed.

Fulham finished 12th in the Premier League last season and global sports-book Marathonbet will succeed online foreign exchange broker FxPro as the club’s main partner.
