William Hill “Inundated” By Sponsorship Requests In the US
There are very few gambling insiders who would have predicted that sports betting would become legal in the US. The efforts of the State of New Jersey over the last few years in various courts were epic and now it has resulted in a “gold rush” for what many believe will make the gambling industry revenues look like small change.
The amounts wagered by US sports betting fans have been well documented by our team in the last few years. The billions wagered were mostly illegal until now but the groundwork has been set for each state to introduce legislation that will enable a quick launch.
One of the major winners of the PASPA decision is William Hill who according to the US CEO Joseph Asher is now being inundated with approaches from major US Sports teams regarding potential sponsorship deals. Asher claims to have received many calls and emails from major sporting franchises that are looking to cement sponsorship deals. He said,” The leagues and the teams are interested in doing commercial deals.”
William Hill have got off to a quick start in this market as they are set to provide that platform for New Jersey at Monmouth Park. William Hill have been operating in the US for nearly as long as online gambling became legal and are expected to be one of the major players in the sports betting market.
