Online gaming operator Betway has signed a two-year agreement to become the official shirt sponsor of Spanish La Liga side CD Leganés.

It marks the company's first move into the Spanish football sponsorship market, having been the principal sponsor of English Premier League side West Ham United since 2015.

The operator also serves as the betting partner of German Bundesliga club Werder Bremen and Belgian champions RSC Anderlecht.

"CD Leganés play in one of the most popular leagues in the world and we couldn't be happier to be partnering with them ahead of their 2018/19 campaign," said Betway CEO Anthony Werkman.

"This is yet another major deal for us as we continue to extend our reach throughout Europe. We wish the club all the best for the new season as we look to build a long and successful partnership."

This year CD Leganés will celebrate its ninetieth anniversary by competing for the third consecutive year in La Liga. Last season the club finished in 17th place with 43 points, just one place above the relegation zone.

"The club is always look to grow and we believe that is what we have achieved," said Victoria Pavón, president of CD Leganés. "Betway is a great company and we are very happy with the deal."
