Nantes extends with kit sponsor

French Ligue 1 football club Nantes has extended its kit sponsorship agreement with online poker operator Winamax.

The new two-year deal will cover the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons and will grant Winamax continued brand exposure on Nantes’ shorts.

Under the agreement, Winamax will provide betting offers for supporters and launch competitions for fans to win jerseys. A meet-and-greet poker tournament for fans and players will also be organised as part of the deal.

Earlier this week, Winamax extended a similar shorts sponsorship agreement with fellow Ligue 1 team Girondins de Bordeaux. The new two-season deal will run until 2019.
