As part of this new partnership with Reading Football Club, our logo will be printed on the front of Reading’s first-team and adult replica shirts until the summer of 2021.
We asked Greg, our Manager for UK & Ireland for a brief comment on this legendary deal:
“Casumo is extremely excited to launch this partnership with Reading Football Club, in what is an historic moment for our brand. We are passionate about working with the Royals to make Madejski Stadium a fun, vibrant and exciting environment for fans over the course of the next two years.”
We’ve recently released our sportsbetting product in select markets and our aim is to make it available also to UK players in the coming months. That’s also another reason why this deal with Reading Football Club is very important for us.
We spoke also to Nigel Howe, Chief Executive of Reading Football Club. We asked him what this partnership means to his club.
“As a club we celebrate our history, football’s traditions and our glories gone by – but we also pride ourselves on being innovative and forward-thinking. Like Casumo, we strive to provide a fun, friendly and exhilarating environment for our fans and we look forward to working closely with Casumo this season and beyond.”

“We’re delighted to announce this partnership with a vibrant and creative brand like Casumo. We’ve been impressed by Casumo’s imagination and desire to immerse themselves in to our club, culture and fanbase.
