Three Different Betting Sponsors?! West Bromwich Albion Sign First-Ever Sleeve Sponsorship Deal

Just two days ahead of their Premier League opener against Bournemouth, WBA announced the club's first ever shirt-sleeve sponsorship agreement, signing a deal with in-game betting specialists 12BET. The deal will see the 12BET logo on the left sleeve of West Brom's 17-18 jerseys and the club's trainingwear.



Interestingly, it seems to be the third sponsor in the WBA portfolio of the bookmaking industry as the club's website also lists Coral and bet365 as club's sponsors.
