– In first move as Club partner, BetBright has agreed to change its colourful logo to all white to honour the importance to supporters of the famous Garibaldi Red home kit –

 

Wednesday 13 June – Nottingham Forest Football Club have today announced a landmark partnership with the digital entertainment and sports betting company, BetBright.

The new deal represents the most significant front-of-shirt agreement in the Club’s history and will see the BetBright logo placed on the front of playing kits for the first team. The partnership with Nottingham Forest is BetBright’s first front-of-shirt contract with an English football club as the company takes its most significant step as part of a major wider investment into marketing its brand.

A key element of the partnership will be a fan-focused approach. As a first step of showcasing the importance of Nottingham Forest fans to BetBright, the company has agreed to change its colourful logo to an all-white version in the knowledge that the Garibaldi Red shirt is of the upmost importance to supporters.

David Cook, Chief Commercial Officer at Nottingham Forest, said:
“The Club are delighted to have secured another key partner for the 2018-19 season. Yet again we have not only been able to secure one of the most significant financial deals in the Club’s history, but also a partner that has shown a unique desire to be part of the project at Nottingham Forest.

“The supporters of Nottingham Forest are of huge importance to us and we look for our partners to have a similar fan-first approach. We look forward to working with BetBright and are excited by the plans they have for the partnership.”

Sarne Lightman, Managing Director at BetBright, is delighted to be partnering with Nottingham Forest, saying:
“BetBright is thrilled that our first shirt agreement is with a Club as iconic as Nottingham Forest and whose aspirations are so closely aligned to our own.

“As Forest are committed to continually improving for their fans, BetBright is committed to continually improving for its users. We have built our own proprietary technology, driven by innovation, allowing us to provide a unique and ever-improving sports betting experience for our customers.

“Like Forest, our goal is to be a Premier League brand in the next 12 months and we are very excited that our brands can take this journey together. Forest fans can expect plenty of exciting Nottingham Forest activations and promotions on BetBright throughout this partnership – starting with Double Odds* on Forest to make the Premier League next season. We want the fans to be at the heart of this partnership and join us on our journey.”

BetBright aims to be a disrupter in the betting industry and challenge more established competitors by embracing new technology. The business is a 100 per cent mobile and online platform and it does not operate any high street outlets – nor does it have plans to do so. Most of the visits to its website and digital platforms are generated by customers in the UK.

The sponsorship deal is the latest step in BetBright’s multi-million-pound investment in marketing for the brand, following the launch of their first TV campaign, sponsorship of the BetBright Cup and launch of the world’s first RoboJockey at Cheltenham.

* Double Odds offer on Forest to be promoted was 5/1, now 10/1. New customers only. Sign up at betbright.com. £10 max bet. Additional winnings added as cash at end of season. Place bet at betbright.com/special. Must be customer’s first bet placed.

MGM has ended the talks with Wynn Resort to buy the Encore Boston Harbor Casino. The nearly finished property and Wynn Resorts as a whole were roped in a scandal of massive proportions that stemmed from multiple sexual misconduct allegations leveled against the casino operator’s ex-boss and founder Steve Wynn.

MGM said in a statement that they “have noted the anxiety raised by various stakeholders regarding a transaction” and that they think “the best course of action is to discontinue discussions” concerning the opportunity to buy Encore Boston Harbor. The statement further read that the company wishes to have “a positive impact on communities in which we operate.”

Wynn Resorts said in a statement that it has agreed to cease discussions with MGM “after careful consideration.” The company added that it is committed to opening and running the 671-room hotel and casino resort located along the Mystic River in Everett.
