The Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) announced Thursday that it has reached a partnership agreement with Betcris, a leader in online sports betting and casino games.
“The Canadian Elite Basketball League is pleased to be following in the footsteps of other major leagues such as the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League in forming partnerships in the Betting and Gaming industry that will extend the recognition of our brand and identify the value of our data, logo and association with other corporate partners,” said Mike Morreale, Chief Executive Officer of the CEBL.
Betcris is a company out of Malta and a leader in sports betting and online casino games. Betcris is licensed in 14 countries throughout Central and South America, allowing them to accept online wagers throughout many countries in the world.
“This partnership will allow Latin American countries access to all 63 live-streamed CEBL games in our inaugural season, enabling our brand to extend its reach beyond North America, while positioning us as a premium sports betting option during the spring and summer months.”
Betcris has been in operation since 1985 and is a leader in the online betting industry. Betcris offers online services in many countries throughout the world, as well as even offering walk-in betting shops throughout Latin America, with plans to double the 100 shops they have currently in the next 3 years. Betcris is a leading destination to place bets on North American sports such as Hockey, Football and Basketball and is known for their competitive pricing, in play betting and fast, reliable payouts.
“We are honoured to be a proud sponsor of the CEBL, not only because we believe in the talent and potential behind this initiative, but because Betcris can bring a new level of excitement to the fan base the league will undoubtedly garner”, said JD Duarte, the CEO of Betcris.
As a reminder, the CEBL opens its inaugural season in May with franchises in Niagara, Saskatchewan, Fraser Valley, Guelph, Hamilton, and Edmonton. Teams will play a 20-game regular season, culminating with a league championship playoff at a site to be announced. CEBL rosters will be predominantly comprised of Canadians playing professionally during the traditional basketball season, as well as a limited number of international and U Sports players.
