Aston Villa has announced EnergyBet as the club’s new official betting partner.

The betting company is a new product to be officially launched later this month by online gaming brand EnergyCasino. However, the Championship club’s fans can visit the brand’s website for the chance to win VIP matchday tickets and home shirts in the first of a season long ‘Ultimate Villa’ competition.

Aston Villa, head of partnerships, Peter Wright said: “We are delighted to add EnergyBet as our official betting partner for the UK and Europe. We look forward to working with EnergyBet as a new challenger brand, supporting them in their endeavour to make their mark in an exciting industry.”

EnergyBet UK, country manager, Emilia Rynkowska added: “EnergyBet are excited to partner with a football club the size of Aston Villa. Villa are one of the most historic and successful clubs in England and it’s a pleasure to be associated with everyone at Villa Park. The club provide us with a great platform to promote our brand and we look forward to being part of their promotion push.”
