NetBet and AS Saint-Etienne have concluded a new partnership agreement running until 2018. The name of the betting firm will now appear on the right-hand "pocket" of the shirt, which will be clearly visible during all Ligue 1 games.
As Official partner of AS Saint-Etienne, last season NetBet already appeared prominently throughout the Geoffroy-Guichard stadium and club media offering many events for supporters.
This season, Netbet will continue to offer fans of Les Verts unique experiences organising the NetBet Golden Shoot during certain home games. At half-time, fans can come on the pitch and chance their arm at the crossbar challenge to win a great jackpot.
Netbet will also organise may competitions throughout the season to give AS Saint-Etienne fans and betting enthusiasts many advantages, gifts and free bets. The betting firm will continue to be able to rely on its significant and diverse visibility throughout Geoffroy-Guichard with a pair of 3D rugs, display on the LED screen and big screens throughout the stadium.
NetBet is approved by the Gaming and Gambling Authorities (ARJEL) and offers online sports betting for a wide range of sporting events and competitions.
Lagardère Sports, owned by Lagardère Sports and Entertainment and the exclusive agent of AS Saint-Etienne, has contributed towards the close ties between NetBet and the club since the 2015-2016 season.
For Alain Bocarra, Chairman of NetBet France, "Football represents a large portion of our business, and it was logical to want to join forces with AS SAINT-ETIENNE which has a large fan base. AS Saint-Etienne is a committed club, just as our company, which strives to always listen to its customers."
Bernard Caïazzo, Chairman of the AS Saint-Etienne Supervisory Board, went on record to say that, "The support of an international stakeholder in the sports field has bolstered our ambition and reflects the European dimension of the club. We are immensely proud that NetBet is continuing to support our development. The renewed partnership underlines the solid visibility of AS Saint-Etienne whose image and values of solidarity and sharing are much appreciated by one and all."
Roland Romeyer, President of AS Saint-Etienne, stated that, "NetBet and the club share the same passion for football, but also the desire to share this with as many fans as possible. We have built a relationship based on trust which allows NetBet to consolidate its presence in France. Moreover, consolidation of this partnership further consolidates our development strategy."
Finally, Laurent Moretti, Managing Director for France at Lagardère Sport stated that, "This renewed commitment between AS Saint-Etienne and NetBet shows the expertise and knowhow which Lagardère Sports offers the club. We wish NetBet and AS Saint-Etienne two wonderful seasons ahead."
