The National Professional Football Association (ANFP) of Chile has unveiled gaming and sports entertainment site Juegaenlinea.com as the new sponsor of the Campeonato de Primera B, the second tier championship in the country.
The official logo and name of the tournament will feature the online gaming site. Currently, the Curacao eGaming licensed operator offers betting on 90 different sports, with soccer being the most popular among Chileans.
Juegaenlinea.com will replace Spanish sports site as.com as the title sponsor of the league after only one season. Through that previous deal the ANFP aimed “to promote the tournament with the help of the most visited digital sports site in Chile”.
The Campeonato Juega en Linea features 15 teams this season and grants two direct promotions to the top tier league, the Primera División, while the worst-ranked team is relegated to the third category.
ANFP President Pablo Milad said: “We are very happy to have Juegaenlinea.com as the new sponsor of the Campeonato de Primera B. We believe that this exciting tournament, where promotion is at stake, deserves this important support.”
In addition, Director and Founder of Juegaenlinea.com, Gerardo Alcega, said: “It’s an honor and a great responsibility to support the sport and this national hobby in Chile. We are truly proud to be the official sponsor of the Campeonato de Primera B.”
