Online bookmaker Betway has been announced as the official principal sponsor of West Ham United and the firm is promoting a free bet special on the Premier League clash with Manchester United to mark the occasion.
The Hammers play host to the Red Devils at 4.15pm on Sunday 8th February. There's sure to be a big audience for the promotion with the sides both harbouring ambitions of European football next season and the match being screened live on Sky Sports 1.
Betway offer a £5 free bet every time your first goalscorer selection finds the net during the game. Naturally, own goals don't count, but you don't even need to win your bet to pick up the freebies!
For example; lets say you back Andy Carroll to net the opener, but Wayne Rooney scores first. If Carroll subsequently scores twice, you'll pick up a pair of £5 free bets which you can use at your own discretion within 7 days of issue.
The sponsorship deal with a Premier League club shows how serious Betway are about pushing their brand in the industry and comes on the back of the firm replacing Betvictor as the Queen Mother Champion Chase sponsor at the 2015 Cheltenham Festival. Betway also sponsors Premier League darts and has worked hard to increase brand awareness over the last few months with a TV advertising campaign, which is testament to how far the firm has come since being launched in 2006.
The bookie has also recently added best odds guaranteed on horse racing to a raft of money back specials encompassing all sports to broaden appeal to a wider range of punters.
Betway is a realtively new bookmaker with a growing reputation in the industry, they currently welcome new customers with a £50 free bet offer meaning punters can test drive the sportsbook risk-free.
