The English Football League (EFL) is extending its long-term collaboration with Flutter’s Sky Bet.

Sky Bet CEO Steve Birch said the partnership will focus more than ever on responsibility. He said the partnership, which covers the second to fourth levels of English football and is now approaching its tenth year, will promote safer gambling. The slogan “Take Time to Think” will appear on clubs’ sleeve badges and on LED advertising, matchday programmes and big screen ads.

Birch said: “This has always and rightly placed safer gambling at its heart, while also establishing a framework that allows us to engage the millions of EFL fans and connect them with the teams, players, and communities that they passionately support. And if last year’s footballing drama is anything to go by, they are in for another treat this season.

“Back to full capacity following the pandemic, Wembley hosted close to 200,000 football fans across three exciting league finals in May, whereby two sleeping giants of English football – Nottingham Forest and Sunderland – were promoted from the Championship and League One respectively, with Port Vale coming up from League Two.

“With both attendances at, and viewership of, last year’s EFL finals and play-offs close to record highs, Sky Bet was pleased to have access to its largest sponsorship inventory to date.”

The CEO noted that Sky Bet has introduced collaborations with a range of responsible gambling bodies as part of its EFL deal. That includes work to promote the TalkBanStop initiative run by GamCare, Gamstop and Gamban. The company will also continue to fund its £1m multi-year support for EPIC Risk Management, which seeks to educate club staff and players about gambling-related harm.

Birch said: “These initiatives demonstrate how both Sky Bet and the EFL have pioneered what a collaborative and constructive partnership can look like between a betting company and a sporting organisation.

“As part of Flutter, one of the largest-listed sports betting and gaming companies in the world, we’ve been able to use these learnings to establish similar commercial relationships with leading sports bodies such as the NFL and NBA in the US and the NRL in Australia, while also developing standards around areas such as betting integrity.

“While these partnerships should not escape scrutiny, neither should their benefits be wilfully ignored. So, like the thousands of football fans cheering on their team this weekend, I’ll be supporting the EFL and our long-standing partnership, all of us hoping for another successful season.”

Betswap.gg Ranked as the Best Web3 Sports Betting Site | by dAPP Radar

Betswap.gg, the revolutionary peer-to-peer sports betting exchange, has made the number one spot as the “Top Polygon Gambling App” in crypto betting on dApp Radar’s ranking page relative to other blockchain companies based on their trading volume in the past 24 hours, 7 and 30 days.

Betswap.gg launched the beta version of their sports betting site only two and a half months ago. They have since brought in $2.2 million in trading volume across more than 18,000 bets, taking them to the top spot on the leaderboard in an impressively short period of time. According to dApp Rader, in the last 30 days, Betswap.gg has brought in $1.34 million dollars in trading volume and a huge $885.39k in the past seven days on the Polygon chain.

In addition to this, dApp Radar has put Betswap.gg in position number 2 across chains in the category “Top Gambling dApps” in the past seven days, with their trading volume currently standing at $886.88k.

In a short period of time, Betswap has proven to be a leader in the decentralised sports betting scene, posing a real threat to competitors and other protocols planning to join the space, some of whom have recently come under pressure by their community and labeled as a “centralised betting exchange” after requiring users to give personal information to use the app. Betswap is a fully trustless and permissionless platform with no KYC needed, which is preferred by native crypto users. Betswap.gg also does not take custody of users’ funds at any point, allowing players to place individual bets directly from their wallets and withdraw their winnings seamlessly, safely, and instantly.

Betswap Chief Marketing Officer, Thawfeek Ameen said, “there are many reasons that Betswap is the most suitable crypto sports betting app in the industry, including the fact we are EVM-Compatible and do not rely on one single chain to be functional, unlike other platforms. We also do not require personal details of our users; we are fully trustless and permissionless as well as being fast, reliable, and easy to use”. He continues, “We have also decided to give away up to $25,000 during the FIFA tournament, it is our first World Cup on the platform, and we want to show appreciation to the users who have allowed us to do so well in such a short period of time.”

The rating from dApp Radar comes during the FIFA World Cup 2022, reinforcing that Betswap is the best choice for dedicated Web3 sports betting customers in this tournament. Signing up is simple, with users just having to connect their Metamask Web3 wallet to the site, and with a few clicks, they are ready to start placing bets or acting as a bookmaker. During the games, Betswap has created a live betting feature, that allows users to easily follow what’s happening in each game in real time, making the betting experience even more unique and immersive.
