Online betting and gaming operator Betway has agreed a three-year-deal to serve as the official betting partner of South Africa’s new Mzansi Super League T20.
The new Twenty20 cricket tournament features six franchise teams, with games taking place in Johannesburg, Tshwane, Durban, Nelson Mandela Bay, Cape Town and Paarl.
Betway has agreed a seven-figure deal to sponsor the tournament, which ends on December 16th, adding to the operator’s recent betting partnerships with both the men’s and women’s Cricket West Indies (CWI) teams.
“We are really pleased to be on board at the start of this new look T20 tournament,” said Betway managing director Anthony Werkman. “Being involved as a global partner shows the ambition Betway has to become a recognised worldwide supporter of elite professional sport, and the names appearing in this tournament certainly fit that bill.
“I am sure that the crowds will enjoy the games and we look forward to delivering an exciting experience for our customers too over the next three years.”
Cricket South Africa chief executive Thabang Moroe added: “We are thrilled to have sports betting brand Betway on board to join our roster of sponsors, all of whom have committed to helping us take Mzansi T20 to the world through the game of cricket.”
