Leading UK betting giant, William Hill, has announced that it has signed a sponsorship deal with Premier League football club, Crystal Palace.
William Hill also signed on Aston Villa and Southampton and the deal with Crystal Palace is therefore its third Premier League club partnership this month.
Kristhof Fahy, the Chief Marketing Officer for William Hill, revealed that they are thrilled that William Hill Online has become Crystal Palace Football Club’s official betting partner. Fahy added that the Barclays Premier League is the most watched domestic football competition in the World and that this deal with Crystal Palace gives them a gateway to introduce a new global audience to the William Hill brand.
Steve Parish, the Chairman of the Crystal Palace Football Club, also said that he was delighted to name one of the world’s leading betting and gaming companies, William Hill, as their new official betting partner and that they are eagerly looking forward to a successful and long term association between the two parties.
Last week the London based Crystal Palace Football Club kicked off the Premier League season by losing 2 – 1 against Arsenal.
Crystal Palace is also endeavoring to hire a new manager following the recent departure of Tony Pulis.
The football club also urgently needs to sign reinforcements prior to the closing of the transfer window, which appears to be a difficult task without a manager and crucial for the team if it wants a chance of retaining its Premier League status.
It has been reported that Kieth Millen, who heads any transfer deals for Crystal Palace, is contemplating a deal with Serbian international Zdravko Kuzumanovic.
