Aston Villa ends W88 sponsorship deal

29 June 2020

English Premier League club Aston Villa has announced that its shirt sponsorship agreement with Asian facing igaming operator W88 will come to an end at the end of the 2019-20 season.

The deal, announced in June last year, was described as a “record-breaking commercial partnership” for the club, and saw W88 branding featured on the team’s playing jersey and first team training gear.

However it only covered that season, with the club saying that it had now come to “its natural end”.

“The club would like to thank W88 for their support over the past 12 months,” Aston Villa added.

W88 previously served as Wolverhampton Wanderers’ shirt sponsor, though that deal came to an end in June 2019, with another Asia-facing operator, ManBetX, taking over.
