Entain-owned operator bwin has unveiled its new partnership with UEFA, which will see it become the first-ever betting partner of the revamped Europa League and the newly created Conference League.

The partnership will last for the next three seasons and provide the operator with a prominent branding presence in both competitions, seeing it appear on broadcasting backdrops and in stadia, including on extensive perimeter advertising, as well as on the website and social media of the competitions.

Additionally, the sponsorship will see bwin granted permission to use content and footage from the tournaments on its own platforms.
