Betfair International, part of Flutter Entertainment, has signed Brazilian national soccer team icon Ronaldo Nazário to the brand as an ambassador.
A three-time FIFA World Player of the Year and World Cup winner in 1994 and 2002, Ronaldo joins Betfair on June 30, which is the date of the 20th anniversary of Brazil’s fifth World Cup win in Japan in 2002.
Betfair has shared a video on their social platforms highlighting the main achievements of Ronaldo’s career. The Brazilian footballer also joins former teammate Rivaldo on the brand’s ambassador team.
“Joining the Betfair team of ambassadors is an honor, I will wear, once again, the same shirt as Rivaldo, something we did 20 years ago and makes us very proud to this day,” commented Ronaldo.
“I have no doubt that this partnership with Betfair will bring many amazing experiences to football fans. In a year of the World Cup, fans can expect a lot of news from Betfair and Ronaldo together, every result is possible.”
Betfair International is the official sponsor of Conmebol Libertadores and Sudamericana, the second-most prestigious club competition in South American football, in addition to having the naming rights of the Campeonato Carioca in the 2022 season.
The brand also has a sponsorship deal with Palmeiras and master sponsorship of its women’s football team for the next two years, which includes official and exclusive digital content on the club’s platforms.
Kimberley Daly, Managing Director for Betfair International, added: “We’re very excited to have the legendary Ronaldo join our stable of ambassadors, joining forces with his World Cup-winning compatriot Rivaldo.
“With such high-caliber ambassadors, Betfair gets closer to Brazilian sports fans and bettors and we are keen to deliver the most premium experiences a betting company can offer.”
