Betfred Extends PDC Sponsorship Agreement

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

Gaming operator Betfred announced that they've extended their sponsorship with the Professional Darts Corporation, and have also donated £35,000 to a charity tied to the PDC.

The agreement will see Betfred remaining the title sponsor of World Matchplay events through 2025, although future extensions are possible. The two groups have been partners since 2019.

Additionally, Betfred donated £50 per 180 scored during the World Matchplay event over nine days. There were 367 maximum scores, which also triggered a £10,000 bonus donation. In total, this helped raise £35,428 for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity.

Regarding the sponsorship extension, Betfred's Fred Done said, "Our sponsorship of the Betfred World Matchplay has been a brilliant success for the past four years and I'm delighted that we'll be working with the PDC until at least 2025.

"The Betfred World Matchplay is one of my favourite sporting events each year and the 2022 event has been a wonderful championship."

PDC CEO Matt Porter added: "Betfred have enjoyed huge exposure over the past four years with their sponsorship of the World Matchplay and we're delighted to continue to work with them for at least the next three years."
