German sports betting operator Tipico has agreed a deal to serve as competition sponsor of the Österreichische Fußball-Bundesliga (ÖFB), the highest division in the Austrian football league.

The deal begins from the start of the 2014-15 Bundesliga season and runs for the next three seasons, with further details of the partnership to be released in the coming months.

Rival operator tipp3, an online sports betting subsidiary of Casinos Austria and Austrian Lotteries, will remain a sponsor of the competition after its deal to serve as the league’s title sponsor expires at the end of the current season.
