GB Taekwondo has agreed an official partnership with online betting brand 12Bet for the World Taekwondo Championships in Manchester between May 15-19, 2019.
12Bet was earlier also partner for the World Taekwondo Grand Prix and World Para Taekwondo Championships, staged at London’s Copper Box Arena in 2017.
The world championship tournament will be televised extensively around the world.
Matt Archibald, CEO of GB Taekwondo, said: “We are delighted that 12Bet have decided to extend the partnership to a third major event. Their support for taekwondo has been extremely valuable during the Tokyo Olympic cycle.
“Home advantage has helped our athletes gain valuable Tokyo ranking points. This deal further demonstrates that we can help brands access both domestic and international markets”.
12Bet CEO (Europe) Rory Anderson said: “We have previously sponsored two taekwondo grand prix events in the UK and we have seen the benefit so it’s great that we are now an official partner of the world championships. Taekwondo is an exciting sport and has a global audience that our customers are a key part of”.
