Under the terms of the agreement, Coral Interactive is to provide a full cash betting service to the Rams on matchdays at the iPro Stadium. In addition, Derby County’s fans will be able to place their bets on the club’s latest odds in the brand’s betting stations located “in and around the ground.”
Gala Coral’s sports-betting brand revealed that it is to offer a variety of online, mobile and telephone betting services to all supporters of the football club as part of the deal. The betting services provider’s digital offerings including the latest Derby County odds will also be displayed at the official website of the Rams.
