Bodog has signed a one year deal to advertise its play for free website Bodog.net with the Edmonton Oilers during the 2010/2011 hockey season. The deal includes advertising on the rink boards, concourse signage, radio spots and LED and LCD signage.
“The Edmonton Oilers are ingrained in the fabric of the sport I have followed all my life,” said Patrik Selin, CEO of Bodog Europe. “As a Swede, hockey is near and dear to my heart and we are sure that our first season with the Oilers will be a great one for us and the team. We are in this deal as fans of the game not just as commercial sponsors.”
“Welcoming Bodog to the Oilers partner family is a great addition, they are a great bet,” said Edmonton Oilers President and CEO Patrick LaForge.
Bodog.net is a play for fun website that offers free play poker and free play sports contests to contestants in Canada and the United States.
