In addition, 888sport will broadcast video content, filmed in partnership with the NFL, on its social channels, and offer fans exclusive prizes including official merchandise and tickets to upcoming Super Bowl events.

“We are really delighted to be the official sports betting partner of the NFL and playing our part in the continuing growth and success of such an amazing brand and sport in the UK and Ireland,” 888sport’s vice president and head of sport, Kieran Spellman, said.

“Our partnership will bring 888sport closer to the heart of live sport and continue to inspire us to create great content-rich and entertaining experiences for our customers.”
