LaLiga extends with betting partner

LaLiga, which operates the top two divisions of Spanish football, has renewed its partnership with sports-betting company Sportium.

Under the new two-year deal, Sportium will continue to serve as an official betting partner of LaLiga for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons.

Sportium first partnered with LaLiga in 2014.

"After three years, Sportium has become a company with close ties to LaLiga and our aims, which is why we want to extend our collaboration for a further two years," LaLiga president Javier Tebas said. "At LaLiga we work with top-level brands. Sportium is the betting firm that shows the greatest level of commitment to integrity and is entrenched in sporting values, which it certainly shares with LaLiga."
