We are observing a growing interest in live betting among the customers. For this reason, we are investing in the broadest possible offer of sporting-event broadcasts in various disciplines from around the world – says Mateusz Juroszek, CEO at STS.

STS also holds a contract with the ELEVEN SPORTS NETWORK Group, providing broadcasting space to Eleven, Eleven Sports and Eleven Extra channels in all venues owned by STS. Customers of STS betting shops can watch various games live in full screen, including matches in the world’s biggest football leagues, such as the Spanish LaLiga Santander, the Italian Serie A TIM and the French Ligue 1, as well as prestigious Formula 1® races, the VELUX EHF Handball Champions Leauge and exciting events in other sports.

STS is the biggest legally operating bookmaker in Poland, and it has been systematically strengthening its leading position in this challenging local market. In fact, as much as 60% of the Polish market is covered by non-licenced operators, who do not pay taxes or comply with the strict Polish bookmaking law. Despite such an adverse competitive environment, we keep expanding our offer and offering new functionalities to our clients. Or aim is continued organic growth that will allow us to respond even better to our clients’ needs adds Mateusz Juroszek.
