Betsson’s ambassador at LAC will Norwegian John Arne Semundseth Riise. Born in 1980, Riise started his career when he was 16 years old with his local team Aalesund. After a single season as a senior player, he headed abroad to play for AS Monaco where he saw success and got several Premier League-teams’ attention. In 2001, John signed for Liverpool where he spent the best days of his career.
Today, the left-back John Arne Riise is one of Norwegian’s most acclaimed football players. With 110 caps, he is the most capped player ever for the Norway national team. He spent seven years playing for Liverpool and won numerous of tournaments, including the 2004–05 UEFA Champions League, before he signed for Roma in 2008.
John has been a Betsson ambassador for six years and counting.
The company hopes that having Riise on its stand as one of their main Ambassadors will engage attendees, and will be running a contest via a leader board.
Riise will attend to shoot in the Football Goalpost on the stand, aiming to score a high score. Whoever beats that score will leave the event with prizes such as a Liverpool t-shirt, balls and more signed by Riise.
Betsson will encourage the winners to also wear/show the prize beside Riise.
Additionally, Betsson will be also offering the chance to meet Riise in person, and also go away with a signed photo taken on a Fuji Instant Camera and available to take away there and then.
Riise will be also going round the arena to meet and greet all attendees of the show.
