Welsh Premier League secures new sponsor

Bangor City
Bangor City will be defending their Welsh Premier League crown this season

The Welsh Premier League has secured a new sponsor for the next three years.

Flintshire-based sports betting and gaming company Corbett Sports have signed up to offer financial support to Wales' national league.

No financial details have been given about the deal, but the 12 clubs are set to receive £5,000 each, which matches the previous agreement.

"We're absolutely delighted to get a sponsor in the current climate," said league secretary John Deakin.

"Corbett is a company I've spoken to in the past and in fact we came close to contracting them as an official betting partner a few years back but it didn't materialise.

"I don't think the clubs will be disappointed with the financial package this gives them."

The League had been searching for a sponsor after deciding not to renew their agreement with Principality Building Society, the sponsors for the past five seasons.

The new Welsh Premier League season begins on Friday when The New Saints host Bala Town. Defending champions Bangor City host Welsh Cup winner Llanelli a day later.
