Edinburgh City Football Club is delighted to announce a new partnership with FansBet.

The UK-based gaming firm offers a betting platform with a difference; one summed up by their very apt strapline “About Fans. By Fans. For Fans”. Run by lifelong match-goers, they pride themselves as being the only bookmaker which promises to share a generous 50% of their net profits with fans, while maintaining rigorous standards towards safe, enjoyable, responsible gambling.

Fans are given the option to select the club they support when registering at FansBet.com; any Edinburgh City supporter who tags themselves to the club when they join will mean that if their bets win they will succeed in the traditional way and receive their winnings, but uniquely and vitally, any unsuccessful bets can still help the club raise funds to be spent specifically for the benefit of Citizens.

David Alexander, FansBet Scotland Ops Manager said: “I’m delighted to welcome Edinburgh City as a FansBet Fan Partner. We were hugely impressed with the passion and desire to take the club forward and it will be great to play a small part of that”

Edinburgh City Director Colin Campbell added: “FansBet have a real commitment to responsible gaming as well as a great track record of giving back to supporters. The partnership is a real opportunity for us to create a new income stream which will help us achieve our aims as a club. I would encourage Edinburgh City supporters who already like a flutter to switch to FansBet and back their club”

FansBet are partners with Supporters Direct Scotland and already have many impressive stories of giving back to and empowering fans, ranging from funding away travel, share purchases, backing safe standing projects and many more. You can read some of FansBet’s Giving Back stories on their blog.

In addition to sharing 50% of their net profits, FansBet will also provide special Fan Boosts on all Edinburgh City matches. Keep an eye on our social channels for the latest.
