Bwin.party Extends MotoGP SponsorshipPublished May 29, 2013 by OCR Editor
Online gambling and sportsbook operator to partner with MotoGP for two more years
Bwin.party and MotoGP World Championship have extended their relationship, with the online gambling operator to continue sponsoring the event and providing online betting on all races.
Two more years
Bwin.party has sponsored the MotoGP World Championship since 2004, and will continue to back the world's biggest motorbike racing series for another two years. Under the new agreement, bwin will be title sponsor for the Czech and Spanish grand prix races and will have a highly visible presence at other races.
MotoGP is particularly relevant for bwin because its motorcycle races are popular in Italy and Spain, two of the large regulated markets on which the company is focusing. As bwin.party CEO Norbert Teufelberger pointed out, "MotoGP is one of the most exciting sports in the world and is a perfect fit for the bwin brand."
Bwin Sports is offering all its customers a full range of betting options ahead of the Italian MotoGP on June 2. It has some attractive odds on the Antepost winner, led by: Jorge Lorenzo (Spain, Yamaha), 2.40, Daniel Pedrosa (Spain, Yamaha), 3.50, Marc Marquez (Spain, Honda), 4.50, and Valentino Rossi (Italy, Yamaha), 5.00.
For those looking at the bigger picture, online betting is also available on the five major candidates still in the running for the 2013 MotoGP title. The odds are as follows: Pedrosa, 2.55, Marques, 2.80, Lorenzo, 2.90, Rossi, 21.00, and Cal Crutchlow (Great Britain, Yamaha), 51.00.
