By sponsoring Boca, we are partnering with the most recognised sports brand in Latin America, thereby strengthening our rapid and consistent expansion in the region,”

Maximiliano Bellio, Betsson’s Country Manager for Argentina, revealed that the Betsson logo will make its debut on Boca Juniors’ jerseys on June 29, coinciding with their match against Monagas on the final day of the Copa Libertadores de America group stage.
