Unique sports-tech company My Club Betting, which focuses on driving much-needed funds to grassroots sports clubs, has unveiled its new sportsbook after partnering with FSB Technology (UK) Ltd.
My Club Betting provides sports clubs and teams of any size with their own customised betting site. The club’s members bet through the individual club’s service and 20% of the bookmaker’s net revenues return to the club. Each club also receives free kit and equipment.
By adding FSB Technology (UK) Ltd as their service provider, a My Club Betting user now has access to over 70,000 in-play events, which include a comprehensive package of football markets, the addition of a market-leading horseracing product – complete with competitive early prices each day – and a wide range of special offers.
“This is a major advancement for the company,” said My Club Betting CEO Bernard Casey.
“My Club Betting has developed a service that we feel will offer a fantastic user experience and provide sports clubs and organisations with everything they need to generate their own revenue stream.
“Our service is fully-licensed and free, so it is a total no-brainer for a cash-strapped local club, as we give 20% of our net revenues* back to that club.
“FSB Technology’s managed sportsbook service includes a proprietary live sports betting platform, real-time algorithmic pricing models and CRM tools for player segmentation and bonusing. So partnering with them made perfect sense for My Club Betting.”
Through collaborations with organisations such as Wales Rugby League and Club Website – where My Club Betting is the largest supplier of bespoke betting sites into grassroots football, with the potential of 150,000 amateur football clubs across the UK taking the service – the group is positioning itself to be one of the largest providers of grassroots funding in the UK.
FSB’s business development director, Richard Thorp, said he was delighted the service had gone live.
He added: “The flexibility of our platform is great for MyClubBetting.com and we’re delighted to be supplying them with our fully-managed service.
“As well as a diverse range of data feeds, a top trading team and a wide variety of sports, they will also have our modern CRM tools at their disposal which will allow them to tailor offers to specific customers.”
