The popular no-wagering casino continues its partnership with PDC

Just weeks after Betfred partners with England Rugby League, the casino site with no wagering requirements has announced an extension to its Professional Darts Corporations (PDC) partnership.

Betfred has signed a three-year partnership extension with PDC whilst also donating £35,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support following a recent PDC event.

Partnered since 2019

This new agreement sees Betfred remaining as the title sponsor of the World Matchplay until at least the end of 2025 as well as supporting the Women's World Matchplay which debuted this year.

Since 2019, Betfred has sponsored the PDC's World Matchplay summer event and this new deal extended this for at least seven years by 2025.

“Delighted that we'll be working with the PDC,” says Betfred

“Our sponsorship of the Betfred World Matchplay has been a brilliant success for the past four years and I’m delighted that we’ll be working with the PDC until at least 2025,” Betfred boss Fred Done said.

He added: “The Betfred World Matchplay is one of my favourite sporting events each year and the 2022 event has been a wonderful championship.”

“This was a particularly memorable Betfred World Matchplay,” says PDC

PDC chief executive Matt Porter said: “Betfred have enjoyed huge exposure over the past four years with their sponsorship of the World Matchplay and we’re delighted to continue to work with them for at least the next three years.”

“This was a particularly memorable Betfred World Matchplay and the incredible standard produced by our players is reflected in this amazing amount which will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.”

The event saw Betfred donating £50 per 180 scored throughout the nine days and World Matchplay achieved a record total of 367 maximum scores to trigger a bonus. Players and visiting celebrities took part in this event and helped raised an additional £7,000.

Porter added; “The nine-dart challenge activity proved popular with everyone who took part across the nine days. This wonderful donation from Betfred will make a huge difference to a charity which does so much good work.”
