SMG Secures Smarkets Shirt Sponsorship for Queens Park Rangers FC

SMG are delighted to have brokered the new front of shirt sponsorship for Queens Park Rangers for the 2016/17 season with leading betting exchange Smarkets.

Smarkets joined QPR’s portfolio of sponsors last season as back of shirt / shorts and training kit partner (also brokered by SMG) and this latest announcement will serve to strengthen the relationship that exists between the club and the betting exchange.

QPR Commercial Director, Euan Inglis commented “We are absolutely delighted that Smarkets have upgraded from their designation from last season to become our lead partner for the 2016/17 season.We have really enjoyed working with Smarkets and look forward to developing new initiatives on top of what has previously been implemented.Revealing our new kit at Smarkets’s new offices in St Katharine Docks later this month further demonstrates the club’s desire to engage with our official partners at every opportunity.”

Smarkets was founded in 2008 by CEO Jason Trost, providing its customers a secure, transparent and superior online investment platform for trading on sporting, political and current affairs events.

Being technology driven has allowed Smarkets to continue offering the best price with an industry low 2% commission structure, surpassing £2 billion in trading volume.

Trost said: “Smarkets is thrilled to extend and broaden our partnership with QPR after joining the team last season.We look forward to the new campaign with a club that shares our aspirations and places its supporters at the heart of the action.”

Stephen Pearson, CEO of Sports Media Gaming added "this is a partnership that demonstrates real growth with Smarkets upgrading their partnership from last season. The front of shirt sponsorship with QPR puts Smarkets firmly in the public eye as the company continues its expansion."

The new QPR shirts for the 2016/17 season were revealed in a special event in the Smarkets office in London.
