Gloryhunter, the company behind a new football app described as the ‘most original, real-time football game since fantasy football’, has signed an exclusive partnership deal with Betfred.
Gloryhunter players can now view updated odds from Betfred for every match and win monthly points and prizes from both Betfred and Nike, another listed partner. At the end of the 2016/17 season, there will be a prize draw where one player will win a week-long VIP trip to Las Vegas for them and three friends.
The app was created by Manchester-based Richard Hague, 41, after he identified that people find it hard to maintain a Fantasy Football team across an entire season. On Gloryhunter, players can select any team in the English League and play with friends and fans across the world.
Gloryhunter was introduced to Betfred by another Manchester-based entrepreneur Warren Jacobs, who is MD of digital marketing company ActiveWin Media, a firm backed by the Betfred owner.
Fred Done, Betfred Founder, said: “Gloryhunter is something that true football fans will enjoy this season and it really stood out to me as a digital game that is going to soar in popularity. It is based on real-life action on the pitch – and exciting live sport and fans is what Betfred is all about. It seemed like a natural fit to join forces and support such an ambitious new digital start-up.”
Richard Hague, Gloryhunter creator, said: “Having one of UK’s most trusted and experienced gaming brands behind us is incredible. We have big plans for growth this upcoming season and Betfred’s backing will allow us to achieve this.”
The Gloryhunter team is comprised of creator Hague, alongside co-creators Stuart Kay and Richard Blake, and business development manager Christian Single.
