The National Football League (NFL) has chosen 888Sport as its official sports betting partner in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

888Sport (pronounced “triple eight sport”) will serve as the official sports betting partner of the Super Bowl and the NFL London Games during the 2021-22 season as part of the agreement. The NFL and a European betting entity have reached the first agreement of its kind.

This agreement also grants 888Sport broadcast sponsorship rights for the National Football League playoffs, the Super Bowl, as well as Sunday and Monday Night Football, which began airing the previous weekend on Sky Sports NFL.

“We are pleased to work with 888Sport, our first official betting partner in the United Kingdom,” said Chris Halpin, executive vice president of the National Football League and chief strategy and growth officer. “It’s a brand that will help us increase fan engagement with our sport, and this collaboration will provide us with strategic insights that will help shape our entire approach to sports betting,” says the company.

The first week of the new NFL season began with three games broadcast on SkySports in the United Kingdom. The New Orleans Saints defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 34-23 in Tom Brady’s first game as the Buccaneers starting quarterback. The New England Patriots defeated the Miami Dolphins by a score of 21-11.

The Los Angeles Rams defeated the Dallas Cowboys 20-17 in the first Sunday Night Football game of the 2018 season.

Guy Cohen, senior vice president and head of B2C at 888 Holdings, stated in a statement that “this is the beginning of an exciting chapter for 888sport.” 888sport is a company that offers online sports betting and gaming.

We take great pride in being at the forefront of live athletic events, and we are honored to work with a brand as well-known as the NFL.

“We look forward to contributing to an exciting NFL season and beyond.”

888Sport has begun broadcasting a brand new weekly social video series called “The Punt” as part of its partnership with the National Football League (NFL). The first episode of the series aired on Thursday, one day before the season opener between the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and the upstart Houston Texans.

You can watch the broadcast on any of 888Sport’s social media channels that you choose to follow. Every episode will feature celebrity guests who are also die-hard NFL fans.

One of those scheduled to appear is Sam Quek, a television personality who previously competed for England at the international level in field hockey. In addition to being a Chiefs fan, Quek was a member of the Great Britain team that won gold at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Will Brazier, a social influencer who supports the Cowboys, and Steffan Powell, a BBC journalist who supports the Las Vegas Raiders, are all scheduled to be regular guests on the weekly panel show that will discuss the most pressing issues confronting the National Football League (NFL) throughout the season.

An Early Market Presence in the United States

The Nevada Gaming Commission granted 888 Holdings, the company that owns 888Sport, a license in 2013 to offer online gaming in Vegas and online sports betting, making it one of the first non-native companies to do so.

Companies based in the United States that provide online betting are permitted to do business in the country.

Through a partnership with Caesars Atlantic City Casino, residents of New Jersey gained access to online sports betting through 888sport in 2018.

Jets, Jets, and more Jets

When the online bookmaker 888Sports agreed to become the presenting sponsor of the New York Jets for the 2019 NFL season, the company built on an existing relationship with the NFL (NFL). The New York Jets play their home games at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Even though it was only recently extended until the 2020 NFL season, the collaboration remains the first and only of its kind to be established between a pure digital gaming company and an NFL franchise.

As part of the agreement, the 888casino logo will be displayed throughout MetLife Stadium, which has a capacity of over 82,000 people, including the ‘red-zone’ feature, for all eight of the Jets’ regular season home games. Furthermore, 888casino promotions will be distributed online via the team’s website and social networks, as well as on 98.7 ESPN during Jets game radio coverage.

As part of the agreement, the company will be able to incorporate the New York Jets’ branding into its many New Jersey-based websites and mobile applications.

A comprehensive team profile has been created on the 888sports website to ensure that all New York Jets fans are kept up to date with the most recent and fascinating information about their favorite team.

Looking at this information, which can range from historical statistics to betting odds, can answer all of the team’s questions.
