(PRESS RELEASE) -- 888, one of the world’s most popular online gaming company and solutions providers, has extended its sponsorship deal with the National Football League’s (NFL) New York Jets for the upcoming 2019-20 season.
The newly renewed partnership builds on the successful introductory season which saw 888casino branding feature extensively within the 82,000 plus capacity MetLife Stadium. As part of the deal, New York Jets branding will also feature on 888 Casino
’s site and app in New Jersey. Promotions will appear online across the team’s fan websites and social channels and featured on 98.7 ESPN during radio coverage of Jets games. 888casino will also be the official game sponsor for the 21 October Monday Night Football against the NFL champions, the New England Patriots.
