Leading Swedish online gambling group, Betsson, has signed a new sponsorship deal with the top English Premier League football Club, Arsenal for a total of three years.
The terms of the deal will see Betsson’s B2B division, Betsson Business Solutions, becoming the official betting partner to Arsenal.

Betsson Business Solutions’ managing director added "Betsson chose Arsenal not only because it is a huge international club with a very large fan base, but also because its tradition of innovation matches perfectly with the 'GunnersGaming by Betsson' concept. Arsenal is one of the greatest football teams in the world and we’re looking forward to enjoying a long and successful partnership together."
