AFC Bournemouth has confirmed online betting brand Dafabet as its new principal partner and front-of-shirt sponsor.
As part of their two-year partnership, Dafabet will feature on the front of the men’s playing shirts. Dafabet has a proud history of working prominently across a whole variety of sports, including influential partnerships with a number of county cricket clubs, in boxing and snooker, as well as a significant presence in football having worked with the likes of Celtic, Everton and Aston Villa in recent years.
As part of their commitment to corporate social responsibility, Dafabet will make a financial donation to the Club’s Community Sports Trust to support projects that help get adults into work.
Rob Mitchell, Commercial Director at AFC Bournemouth, said: “Signing this partnership with Dafabet is extremely important in providing us with crucial revenue as a football club.
