French state-owned gambling and lottery operator Française des Jeux (FDJ) has secured an in-stadia betting partnership with Rhone Ligue 1 football club Olympique Lyonnais.
The partnership will see FDJ install ‘ParionsSport’ betting points throughout Lyonnais’ stadium Parc OL (capacity 58,000), allowing for fans to place bets during matches.
Olympique Lyonnais will further support FDJ as betting partner by promoting its online sports betting subsidiary ‘Parionssport’ (www.parionssport.fdj.fr).
FDJ governance was pleased to have secured a betting partnership with ‘Les Gones’ (Olympique Lyonnais nickname) as one of France’s most popular football clubs.
The state-owned operator is one French sports’ biggest contributors, with FDJ funding multiple grassroots and sports club initiatives for French football, rugby and cycling.
