NETBET will benefit from LED advertising across the club’s 8,000 capacity Stade Ange Casanova Ajaccio, while the operator’s logo will feature on the club’s communication materials, official website and social networking sites.

Miniconi Olivier, president of Gazélec Ajaccio said: "Gazélec Ajaccio is an ambitious club. This agreement underscores our efforts and genuine confidence in the project we lead.”

NETBET president Alain Boccara added: "We are pleased to be associated with Gazélec. We are proud to support them for the new season in Ligue 1.”
