Olympique de Marseille is pleased to announce the signing of a partnership agreement with Mojabet. The online sports betting company has become the club’s official African betting partner for the next six years (2022-2028).
Mojabet is a leading gaming operator in Africa, whose services extend beyond the gaming industry to financial technology, mobile money and telecommunication value added services. The tie-up with OM adds momentum to Mojabet’s ambitions of expanding its online offerings for African sports fans. This partnership underscores its commitment to international growth and the promotion of fan-friendly engagement within a responsible gaming culture.
The partnership between Mojabet and Olympique de Marseille will provide a platform from which the combined fanbases of both parties can grow and engage. Leveraging the natural sporting synergies between two powerful networks is the common goal.
To celebrate kicking-off the partnership Mojabet has launched a bespoke competition named OM8 whereby users must answer eight correct questions each week on the outcome of the upcoming fixture for a chance to win a cash prize and a range of authentic OM memorabilia. The weekly prediction game launches on Sunday to coincide with OM’s game with PSG.
Mojabet’s brand will also benefit from Digital Overlay technology, which targets audiences in the region by geo-location ads displayed on the Club’s LED screens. Mojabet can leverage this technology in Africa for all Ligue 1 matches, played at the Orange Velodrome.
“Olympique de Marseille is a world-renowned club that has deep roots within the African football landscape and communities” said MOJA Group CEO Paris Anatolitis. “Mojabet has established a dominant position across the continent but also has ambitious growth plans. OM is the perfect strategic partner for us to help us nurture even stronger fan connections through unique live experiences, and complement our highly engaging online betting opportunities. Our OM8 competition offers a glimpse of the engaging initiatives we’ll be running to give something back to our customers.”
Pedro Iriondo, Strategy & Development General Manager, Olympique de Marseille:
“We are delighted to welcome Mojabet as a regional betting partner in Africa. We believe Mojabet will be an ideal partner for the club, and together we will be able to reach and engage more with our fan base in Africa. We share similar values around the beautiful game to achieve our goals. We look forward to developing our cooperation with Mojabet with top-class content. This partnership demonstrates our commitment to continuing the club’s history with the African continent.”
