From a press release
issued by Splitlath Redmond:
A Splitlath Redmond EBR 1190RS racebike in Macau.
Splitlath Redmond is thrilled to announce that leading online gaming and betting giant Dafabet is the team’s leading sponsor for the 60th Macau Grand Prix event.
Followers of the English Premier League should recognise Dafabet through their associations with clubs such as Aston Villa and Everton while their online gaming website is Asia’s no1 online betting site.
Motorsport is showing huge growth in Asia – something Splitlath Redmond recognised a year ago when we laid plans to bring the first ethnic-Chinese rider to the Isle of Man TT – and Dafabet is looking to be a part of it.
John Cruces, Head of Sponsorship at Dafabet explains:
“We’re striving to put our brand in front of all manner of sports fans and recognise Motorsport to have a growing audience, particularly in the Asia Pacific region. When the opportunity presented itself to do a deal with Splitlath Redmond in Macau we saw it as a great prospect for a number of reasons.
The team have taken the EBR 1190RS Superbike out of the US for the first time, which is ground-breaking in itself. It’s also the 60th anniversary of the Macau Grand Prix, where they expect a record number of visitors and over 12m TV viewers from around the world. We wish the team every success and riders Mark and Brandon a safe ride.”
John Dimbylow, Splitlath Redmond co-owner is rightfully very proud: “To bring such a huge and respected brand into our team is something we are very proud to do. Like us, Dafabet are looking for different markets to explore so we feel a very close symmetry with our interests and objectives. Following the pack isn’t in either of our natures and to have Dafabet endorsing our philosophy and strategy is fantastic. You could say we are a sure bet now!”
Based in Asia, Dafabet was established in 2004 and its mission is to the best online gambling experience for responsible players. Specializing in sports betting, online casino, online poker and online games, Dafabet strive to offer the best prices whilst covering a wide variety of sporting markets and other worldwide sporting events.
