The Ospreys have teamed up with Paddy Power to run the region's online betting service.
The top bookmaker, who refunded over £200,000 to Welsh rugby fans during the Rugby World Cup, will be bringing special odds and offers to the thousands of fans who regularly use the club’s official website, ospreysrugby.com.
The Ospreys are the first region to secure such a deal, with Paddy Power appointed exclusive online bookmaker to the region.
People using the site will not only be able to have a punt on the fortunes of the Ospreys but they will also be able to have a bet on a wide range of other Welsh sports. For example, Paddy Power is the only bookmaker offering odds on Welsh Premiership rugby and Welsh Premier League football.
Paddy Power said:
“I am delighted to be the second Irishman after Tommy Bowe to sign for the Ospreys, although I doubt I’d be much use as Tommy is on the pitch. So I will stick to what I know and offer great prices and a bit of fun through our great online betting service.
“We know how passionate the Ospreys fans are about the game. Win or lose, I’m sure that by putting a few quid on with us through ospreysrugby.com, it will add to the great experience of being an Ospreys fan.”
Roger Blyth, Managing Director at the Ospreys, commented:
“We are delighted to welcome Paddy Power to the Ospreys family, as the latest market leading organisation to recognise the value of working in partnership with the region.
“Paddy Power’s innovative outlook will definitely go down well with our supporters, who will receive a specially tailored online betting service via our existing website, ospreysrugby.com. We see this being a long-term partnership and we look forward to working closely with Paddy Power over the coming months and seasons.”
