Betfred, the title sponsor of the RFL’s men’s Super League, has now extended it's title partnership to include the Women’s Super League.

The betting company will become the first title sponsor of the women’s competition in a £1m per year that will run until 2021.

The announcement comes on the same day that Betfred has teamed up with Spanish top flight football team RCD Mallorca, becoming the club's main sponsor. The La Liga side was promoted to the highest division last season, for the first time since the club’s relegation in 2013.

La Liga kicked off with a surprise victory for Athletic Bilbao over champions Barcelona in a match broadcast in the UK by free-to-air broadcaster ITV, who will screen games from the next two matchdays as the UK exclusive broadcaster of the spanish top flight.
