VfL Bochum 1848 of the 2. Bundesliga has become the first German betting partner of Stockholm based operator LeoVegas.
The deal, which has been signed on an initial two year basis, will see LeoVegas Sport take over from Sportwetten.de as official betting partner of the second division club.
Hardy Eberle, LeoVegas’ country manager for Germany, commented: “We are proud to accompany such an established club as VfL Bochum over the next two seasons. We look forward to actively supporting the association in its development.”
The deal adds to LeoVegas’ growing sports portfolio, which includes the likes of Norwich City FC and Brentford FC.
Moreover, the operator signed an extension last year with the Leicester Tigers that will see its logo remain printed on the rugby club’s shorts until the end of the 19/20 season.
Christoph Wortmann, sales and marketing director of VfL Bochum, added: “We look forward to the partnership with LeoVegas Sport in the coming years. At the same time, we would also like to thank sportwetten.de for the cooperation last year.”
Bochum kicked off their 2. Bundesliga campaign on 28 July but have yet to register a win. The club’s next game is on 24 August when they host SV Wehen Wiesbaden.
