Betting firm Betfred has announced that they've come to terms with the English Rugby Football League, and will become an official partner of the three national teams for the next year.

The deal makes Betfred an official sponsor of the Men's, Women's, and Wheelchair teams for the upcoming 2021 Rugby World Cup. The terms of the deal will see Betfred's logo adorning the jersey backs and will also grant additional marketing opportunities for the operator. Both groups have a history of working together, as Betfred has been a title sponsor of the Super League for the past four years, and it also has sponsorships with League 1, Championship, and the Women's Super League.

Commenting on the deal Betfred's Fred Done said, "Following our very successful association with Rugby League at all levels in recent years, Betfred are delighted to become an official partner of the England men's, women's and wheelchair teams for the Rugby League World Cup in 2021."

English Rugby Football League CCO Mark Foster also commented, noting: "Betfred have been outstanding sponsors for Rugby League for the last four years, and it's fantastic that they will now extend that support to our England teams in 2021.

"It's such an exciting time for our men's, women's and wheelchair teams as they prepare to play World Cups on home soil."
