Betsson to become the main partner of the BNP Paribas Nordic Open

Betsson, a leading global sports betting and gaming operator, has announced its partnership as the main sponsor of the BNP Paribas Nordic Open – the largest tennis tournament in the Nordics and the oldest indoor tournament in the world.

Betsson’s previous tennis engagements include having former player Jonas Björkman as an ambassador and sponsoring ATP tournaments in Latin America.

Originally known as the Stockholm Open, the tournament was founded in 1969 and has hosted legendary players such as John McEnroe, Björn Borg, Ivan Lendl, and Roger Federer. This year’s competition, starting on October 12, will be broadcast on public TV. As part of the sponsorship, Betsson will have a prominent presence during the matches, organize on-site activities, and offer betting odds on all matches.

Ronni Hartvig, Chief Commercial Officer of Betsson Group, said:

We are extremely proud to sponsor and support this classic tournament. We have sponsored ATP tournaments before, but it feels extra special to do so in Sweden, where the company was founded over 60 years ago, just before the first Stockholm Open. We hope that through our support of the competition, our odds on the players, and our on-site activities, we can contribute to making the experience more enjoyable and memorable for everyone.

Rasmus Hult, CEO of BNP Paribas Nordic Open, said:

We are thrilled to welcome Betsson as the new main partner for the BNP Paribas Nordic Open. This partnership marks a significant milestone for our tournament, as Betsson’s extensive experience in sports sponsorship will elevate the profile and reach of the event. We eagerly anticipate the dynamic activities and offers that Betsson will bring to our fans, confident that these will make the experience even more engaging and memorable for everyone involved.

Betsson’s sponsorship portfolio extends globally, with a strong presence in various sports and football clubs. Betsson supports several football clubs in Italy, is the name sponsor of the Greek Cup in football, and is the main jersey sponsor of Boca Juniors, Racing de Avellaneda, and Atlético Nacional.

The BNP Paribas Nordic Open will take place from October 12 to 20, 2024, at the Royal Tennis Hall in Stockholm.
