League announces deal with Worldlink

By Pitch Hero

THE Ryman Football League and Worldlink Group Plc, the UK listed Company with patents on providing changing data in real-time for mobile devices, announce that Worldlink has become the Ryman League’s official Sports Betting and Gaming Partner.

Worldlink will provide dedicated desktop and mobile applications.

The service will consist of club specific betting portals, and will be available throughout the Ryman League’s Premier, North and South Divisions. The deal with the Ryman League enables betting fans of each member Club as well as the local community to support their clubs financially. Each Club can earn a percentage of all losing bets staked on sporting events, and poker and casino games. The Ryman League itself will work with the clubs in actively promoting the scheme to the supporters.

Worldlink’s licensed bookmaking partner BetButler offers the best odds across 60+ bookmakers and assists Worldlink by managing the earnings and returns a percentage to the clubs.

With the Worldlink service;
• the betting fan gets the best odds
• no losses are carried over to the following months
• the portals are dedicated and styled to the club – with name, logo, and colours

Neil Riches, MD of Worldlink, stated: “I am absolutely delighted to announce the Ryman League as the first major League in the UK to take our unique service. As well as providing a first class service to the clubs’ fans and local community it will provide an additional income stream to go towards the ever-increasing running costs of a football club. Crucially, it can provide income all year round, particularly outside the normal football season.”

Alan Turvey, Chairman of the Ryman League, said: “We are delighted to welcome Worldlink to the Ryman League and look forward to a prosperous period with them. We at the Ryman League are always looking to assist our Clubs in every way that we can, to allow them to increase their standards on and off the pitch, by putting good commercial deals in place. I believe that we have this with Worldlink."
