“The sponsorship deal with W88 will provide significant revenue to support our commercial objectives and enhance our competitiveness in the upcoming Premier League season,” said a Fulham spokesperson. The agreement was finalized just prior to the Premier League’s anticipated ban on betting companies’ jersey advertisements. This move is aimed at meeting the demands of UK regulators, who are pushing for a complete ban on all football-related advertising.

“As a globally recognized brand, W88 symbolizes integrity, trust, and excellence, all while promoting responsible gambling,” stated Hilly Ehrlich, W88’s Business Development Manager. W88 has a history of sponsoring mid-sized Premier League clubs, and has previously been a primary sponsor for teams such as Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, and Wolverhampton.

“We are proud and excited to be partnering with London’s oldest professional football club, Fulham, in their return to the top division of English football. We are also looking forward to engaging with their passionate global fanbase over the coming season and delivering innovative content with the club,” said Hilly Ehrlich. Under the agreement with Fulham, W88 will stamp its logo on the front of the men’s and women’s teams during the 2022/23 season. The company replaces World Mobile, which was on the front of the club’s jerseys last season when Fulham won promotion to the Premier League. Fans against the deal

By signing with W88, Fulham despised the opinion of their fans. According to a survey conducted by the Fulham Supporters’ Trust, 47% of supporters are in favor of a total ban on sponsorship of gambling companies on football jerseys. 56% said they would be uncomfortable with a betting company as Fulham’s main sponsor. The new kit, already sponsored by W88, will be unveiled this Friday (29), in Fulham’s last pre-season friendly against Villarreal, at Craven Cottage, in Fulham (southwest London). The start of its Premier League campaign will be the following week, against Liverpool. Properties

In addition to the jersey sponsorship, W88 will also be entitled to advertisements at Craven Cottage stadium on match days and on Fulham’s digital channels. W88 will also be enabled through digital and social content creation. Source: J7
