Stake and Watford FC
The news just came out: the cryptocurrencies online casino Stake just signed a historic deal with the British club Watford Football Club. What implication does this new sponsorship has regarding this casino we love so much? Let’s find out.
Main sponsor: what does it means?
By becoming Watford FC main sponsor, Stake sends a clear message to the other online casinos: they don’t play in the same league. Speaking about league, the club is set to return in Premier League in the 2021/22 season. With this deal, the cryptocurrencies online casino is offering itself a huge visibility among football fans. The amount of this historic deal, as well as the cryptocurrency used for this transaction have not been disclosed.
Stake’s logo will appear on all three of the team’s playing jerseys as the main kit sponsor. In other words, their logo will be featured both on the front and on one sleeve of the player’s shirts.
To give this deal the best start possible, Stake will be running a 10 million Dogecoin giveaway on its international platform. Special promotions and giveaways will also be offered to the UK audience.
What does Stake expect to get from this deal?
Sponsoring a Premier League football club, which is the most watched league in the world is a really smart move from Stake. The first thing they expect to get from this is global brand recognition: enhancing its global reach and having more people knowing what Stake is.
Of course, the casino’s main goal is to attract new players to its website. Knowing that Stake is not only an online casino but also a sports betting platform, they will most likely communicate about this aspect of their website. A lot of football fans, especially in Great-Britain, are into sports betting. This section of Stake’s website would be the perfect entrance door to attract football fans, and have them discover the casino and live casino sections later on.
Which sports are available to bet on Stake?
It would be way too long to enumerate them all but here are a few sports you can bet on on Stake: Football, Boxing, Canoeing, Cricket, Cycling, Tennis, Baseball, Basketball, Diving, Ice Hockey, Golf, MMA, Skateboarding, Triathlon, Rugby, and many more. All big events have their place on Stake. At the moment we write this news, you can bet on the Olympic Games.
Did we also mention that in addition to sports betting, Stake also has an esports betting section? The esports games you can bet on are Call of Duty, Counter Strike Global Offensive (CS:GO), Dota2, and League of Legends.
We are thrilled to welcome Stake as our principal shirt sponsor ahead of the 2021/2022 season. This will be an extremely exciting campaign for the club as we return to the Premier League and we couldn’t be happier to join with a partner who matches our ambitious outlook and commitment to innovation in order to achieve success.
