Latin American sports betting firm Betcris has renewed its existing agreement with the Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) to continue as its official gambling partner. The renewal will see the two entities extend their partnership for one more year, enabling Betcris to continue delivering betting experiences to CEBL fans on its many digital platforms.

Mike Morreale, commissioner and CEO of the CEBL, explained: “Extending the partnership with Betcris is an excellent example of working with a partner that values the CEBL, and the excitement and entertainment that the league brings both on and off the court.”

Under the terms of the current deal, the CEBL provides real-time scores, game statistics, previews, and player data through its software, FIBA LiveStats, to Betcris. All throughout this 2020 season, this data will help Betcris prepare betting features on every platform to ensure fans have access to accurate data for league wagers. 

Morreale added: “As the online betting landscape continues to expand, we look to continuously provide our fans with additional entertainment options before, during, and after the game with a world-class partner like Betcris.”

The CEBL runs during spring and summer seasons, featuring world-class quality professional basketball and entertainment for all fans across seven cities in Canada. This upcoming season comes with a new addition to the league, the Ottawa BlackJacks. This means that the league will now have seven teams total, increasing the number of games from 60 to 75. 

Betcris CEO JD Duarte commented: “This renewal marks an important step in the growth of our operations, as it demonstrates our commitment to being a key player in the gaming industry. We’re proud to be partnered with the CEBL and look forward to a long and productive relationship.”
