Sky News Update: Partnership withThe Football League extended until 2018 with sponsorship from Sky Bet that will lead to a change in competition names.
Sky Sports have had an ongoing partnership with The Football League for the past three years. However, they have just extended this to another three year agreement in which Sky Sports have the broadcasting rights of The Football League. The agreement will begin in 2015/2016 and will give consumers the opportunity to watch more live matches that were not previously shown on television. Other aspects of the partnership include giving their consumers the chance to enter competitions and win tickets to Football League games, as well as discounts and promotional offers.
In another deal, Sky Bet is now the official title sponsor of The Football League, a great marketing and promotional opportunity for them. Currently, they are one of the largest growing online bookmakers and aim to change the way people watch and experience football matches. Originally, viewers would have had to go to a betting shop and keep track of football scores. With Sky Bet, all bets are made online and users can keep up to date with live scores and they are also notified if they win. The online betting website also is a place where all football fans can take part and not just single team supporters. Not only does it allows consumers to place bets of football matches, but also any other sporting matches that Sky Sports show, such as cricket, golf and rugby.
Due to the partnership, The Football League’s main competition will be called the Sky Bet Football League, with it’s sub-divisions being known as Sky Bet League One and Two, as well as The Sky Bet Championship.
