No More Great Looking Sponsor - Wolverhampton Announce New Shirt Sponsor

English Premier League team Wolves today announced that they have agreed a record partnership with ManBetX, which will see the international gaming company become the club’s new principal and shirt sponsor. The Malta-based firm have sponsored Crystal Palace for the past two seasons.

ManBetX replaces W88 as Wolverhampton Wanderers main sponsor after just one year despite the original deal from Wolves with W88 was signed for two years in Summer 2018. It's understood Wolves exercised a break clause in their W88 deal to end their sponsorship after one season. A similar situation happened with the Money Shop when Wolves won promotion from the Championship.

Wolves Announce ManBetX Shirt Sponsor Deal - Two-Year Deal

No official contract details were announced, but it has been leaked that they signed a two-years deal. The club just said that "the 'long-term' Wolves ManBetX deal is the largest in the club’s history. ManBetX will be on the front of all adult home shirts, covering the first-team, under-23 and adult disability teams.

Wolves managing director Laurie Dalrymple: “We are delighted to welcome ManBetX as our new shirt sponsors as we enter another hugely exciting period for the football club.

“We had the opportunity to work with a new principal partner for the 2019/20 season and we felt that the scale and ambition of ManBetX was closely aligned to ours - I’m confident we can achieve great things in what is Wolves’ largest ever sponsorship deal.

“As the team moves at an exciting pace on the pitch, guiding us into Europe for the first time in 40 years, it’s essential development off it continues at a similar rate, and this deal represents huge progression.

“A large focus has been placed on developing our global audience, with the team heading to Nanjing and Shanghai for the Premier League Asia Trophy in July, and this deal will only expand our global reach, given the impressive reputation ManBetX has in Asia.”

Like last season, Wolves Academy shirts will be sponsored by the University of Wolverhampton. A fresh sponsor to front junior shirts will be announced in the coming weeks.

Xavi Wong, ManBetX sponsorship director, said: “We are extremely proud to be able to partner with Wolves as we believe that, being together, we are able to make a huge impact in our respective fields.

“We are certain that our partnership will blossom and benefit both parties. We believe that Wolves are able to move us to greater heights and set us apart from our competitors. We are looking forward for this partnership and are excited for what the future holds for the both. Good luck to Wolves in the upcoming 2019/20 Premier League season.”
