British casino brand 32Red "has partnered" with Serie A side Bologna, becoming an official sponsor for the '13-14 and '14-15 seasons, according to Jennifer Faull of THE DRUM. The online casino "is looking to expand its brand in Italy," where it has been licensed since November. The deal "includes both on and offline co-branding activities, stadium branding and the launch of an affiliate programme to market the 32Red casino to Bologna fans via the club website" (THE DRUM, 8/27).

The clubs are Hull City, Norwich City, Southampton, Swansea City and West Ham United. The agreement will see the SBOBET brand promoted on the Premier League clubs’ LED pitch-side perimeter ad hoardings during all home games (Isle Of Man).
