JBO has extended its ongoing partnership with French Ligue 1 giant Olympique de Marseille as its Official Asia Betting Partner.
Accordingly, JBO continues its close collaboration with Olympique de Marseille (OM) across a series of key activations and content-marketing opportunities, as the leading French club positions itself for a return to Champions League football next year.
The deal adds more muscle to OM’s progressive and ambitious expansion over the past 12 months, growing its global footprint into more emerging markets, empowered by the operator’s mantra to engage, educate and entertain.
With this association restored and working in lock-step, the partnership between JBO and Marseille will organically strengthen and provide a platform from which to grow and engage both parties’ combined fan-bases across Asia. This shared focus centres around expanding existing Asian audience appeal, alongside leveraging the natural sporting synergies between two powerful networks, above all in the digital domain.
While JBO continues to develop its online offerings for sports fans around the region, this latest milestone renewal highlights its commitment to international growth and fostering fan-friendly engagement within a responsible gaming culture.
A JBO spokesperson welcomed news of the brand’s latest renewal partnership: “JBO has harnessed a suite of well-positioned international betting partnerships to drive awareness and participation around our progressive brand values across both mature and developing Asian territories – and this ongoing collaboration with OM is a firm tent-pole in our home camp. We’re always looking for ways to engage with our customers across digital channels and OM know how to inspire and deploy natural fan enthusuiasm.”
Nathalie Nénon-Zimmermann, Chief Marketing & Revenue Officer at OM, added: “We’re thrilled to continue our adventure with JBO as our Official Asia Betting Partner. It’s a brand which perfectly aligns with OM’s history and continued success. We share similarly-aligned values around the game for securing our goals in the most dynamic way possible.
“We look forward to bringing some top-class content and activity to Asian markets where our signature style can help fans find new and deeper ways in which to interact with the elite football they’ve come to expect from OM.
“In short, it’s fantastic to see Marseille creating wider interest from outside France, and JBO are the ideal team with which to grow our own brand via the unifying power of football.
“We can’t wait to grow our co-operation with JBO and to see this relationship organically evolve over the unfolding season to come.”
