Racing and wagering firm Solbet has signed a two-year sponsorship deal with Peru’s Club Universitario de Deportes. Under the terms of the deal the betting brand’s name will be located on the back of the jerseys.
According to the Peruvian first division team, the Solbet logo will appear below the numbers and will be featured in all matches played by the team at national and international level, as well as friendlies.
The agreement between the Sun International group member and Universitario will also offer exclusive benefits to team fans, who will be able to interact and access promotions on the Solbet platform with a special code.
Juan Pablo Uribe, General Manager of Solbet, said: “It’s an honor for us to be part of the ‘crema’ family and we’re sure that together we will carry out big and successful projects for the benefit of the team and the fans.”
“We know that Universitario is a leading team in the country and has millions of fans who support them unconditionally, which is why we’re prepared to receive them on solbet.com with bonuses in our online casino and sports betting verticals,” he added.
Universitario’s Administrator Carlos Moreno Grández said: “The Solbet company comes to Universitario because we are the largest team in Peru. Despite the difficulties, the ‘U’ continues to build confidence and there is faith that things will improve for the club. It is time to look forward.”
“The sponsorship deal is for 2020 and 2021, and today we can finally call them an official sponsor. Now, the challenge lies on the fans visiting the Solbet site and placing their bets on the winner — always Universitario.”
In late May, Solbet signed another sponsorship deal in Peru that positions the brand as the new sponsor of FBC Melgar. Just like the Universitario deal, the logo will appear on the back of the team’s jersey.
