Rivalo’s actions in the 2022 season of the BFA League
With the master sponsorship of the biggest football league in the Southern Hemisphere, the company’s brand in the betting industry is gaining immense visibility due to exposure in physical and digital properties. This is one of the actions that are part of the activation of sponsorship for BFA. The agreement with Liga BFA also includes advertising boards in the six Conference finals and in the BRASIL BOWL, the grand final of the tournament.
The operator also has a prominent place in games broadcast on ESPN, in addition to the brand in both endzones and on the 20-yard line in decisive confrontations. Rivalo also has the right to inserts in broadcasts on official channels of the league and in materials published daily on the social networks of the BFA League.
Guilherme Bucchi, Acquisition Manager Brazil at Rivalo, emphasizes his satisfaction in offering, in an exclusive way, the possibility of providing the bettor with this opportunity: “This is the type of action that reinforces the partnership between Rivalo and BFA. , and now the BFA fan has his exclusive place to bet”.
For BFA’s commercial director, Eduardo Ferreira, the sponsorship agreement with Rivalo represents a turning point for the sport in Brazil. “Having Rivalo as an official partner of the BFA is something really unprecedented in Brazil. Rivalo will provide growth, professionalism and innovation to Brazilian football, becoming a pioneer in this modality. The trust that Rivalo places in BFA will certainly be a link of relevance, gratitude and reciprocity”.
In addition, a study released by the Federal Government showed that American football is on the rise in Brazil, appearing among the 10 most watched and wagered sports in the country. This was one of the points that aroused the interest of the new master sponsor, which is committed to helping to accelerate the growth process of the sport in Brazil.
It is important to note that women’s American football has been part of the BFA League since 2019. In the same year, the decision was shown on ESPN, proving the relevance of the sport in the national territory. In 2022, the women’s championship has the same dispute formula with more participating teams. The final of the women’s league is already broadcast on TV.
