The company followed this in 2011 by agreeing to be Manchester City F.C.’s International Betting Partner. On June 30 2015, they signed to become sponsors of surprise Premier League debutants A.F.C.

From 2017 it became the official club sponsor of Lincoln Red Imps.[6] Their support of A.F.C. Bournemouth continues, with a deal to be Principle Partners for the 2017/2018 Premier League season.
