Middlesbrough Football Club has entered into agreements with the Kindred Group, which will see a duo of its brands go into close relations with the EFL (English Football League) Championship side.
Online casino 32Red has firstly been announced as the club’s new principal shirt sponsor, with the three year deal marking a “record breaking” partnership.

The online sports betting site will display itself across the Boro first team training wear, in addition to the adult replica versions.
As well as seeing 32Red and Unibet take pride of place across the Hummel designed kit, fans are to also benefit through the agreement, via chances to win “unique, money can’t buy” opportunities.
Neil Banbury, General Manager of the UK at the Kindred Group, commented: “We are delighted to partner with Middlesbrough, a club steeped in tradition with some of the most passionate and loyal fans in the country.
“It will be an honour to see our brand adorn the kits at the famous Riverside as we look to support the team in going one further this season and gaining promotion back to the Premier League.
