SPFL Announces Ladbrokes as Title Sponsors

The SPFL has announced the betting company Ladbrokes as its title sponsor from season 2015/16, in a two-year deal which includes rights across all four leagues and 42 clubs.

The deal is the biggest ever of its kind in Scottish football and will see the nation’s professional football leagues become known as the Ladbrokes Premiership, Ladbrokes Championship, Ladbrokes League 1 and Ladbrokes League 2 ahead of the start of the new season in August.

It marks the latest in a rich history of high-profile sports sponsorship and brand associations for Ladbrokes, which plans to run a host of activations through the different rights of its SPFL title partnership.

SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster said: “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Ladbrokes to the SPFL’s growing family of key sponsors and partners and look forward to working with them from season 2015/16 at this truly exciting time for Scottish football.

“As an established and respected leading brand in its very competitive marketplace, Ladbrokes is a perfect partner for the SPFL and we have a shared vision of a positive future for professional league football in Scotland. Ladbrokes’ backing of Scottish football is hugely valued and appreciated and I say that not only on behalf of the SPFL but also for all 42 member clubs.

“Today’s announcement is the result of significant investment of energy and effort and further strengthens our optimism about the future health of the game in Scotland.

“With all that positivity comes an opportunity to tell the story of a modern, engaging and exciting Scottish football environment and we look forward to doing just that with all our partners including new title sponsor Ladbrokes.”

Ladbrokes is a world leader in the betting and gaming industry with more than 2,100 shops and a great heritage and presence across UK sport.  It has recently sponsored Rugby Football League’s Challenge Cup, extended its backing of horse racing’s St Leger Festival at Doncaster and continues to sponsor The Ladbrokes World Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

Welcoming the new partnership, Jim Mullen, CEO of Ladbrokes said: “We love football so we are delighted to be working with the SPFL on one of the best opportunities in British sport.

“This partnership will help to propel Ladbrokes and the SPFL to new heights and will put us at the heart of Scottish football throughout the year. Getting people engaged with great sport and making sure they share our passion is at the very core of everything we are about.

“Our customers support clubs at every level of Scottish football from the professional leagues that we sponsor to the local Sunday League stalwarts. The Scottish game deserves a committed supporter and our financial backing will help to ensure every level of the game benefits from Ladbrokes’ involvement.”

  1. I oversee a vape shop website directory and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the USA that also markets CBD goods. A Month later on, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have asked us to take away PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop website directory. We do not sell CBD goods like CBD oil. We merely offer marketing and advertising professional services to CBD companies. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Health and wellness Store and if you take a good look, you will see that they supply a relatively considerable range of CBD product lines, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment method. It appears that PayPal is applying contradictory standards to many different firms. As a result of this constraint, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has constricted my payment options and now, I am heavily dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have gotten in touch with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law firm in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is absolutely against the law and discriminatory as it ought to be applying a systematic criterion to all companies. I am yet to consult with a different legal representative from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be very appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with substitute payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
