On the afternoon of this Thursday (6), Sport Club Corinthians released a new official note about the situation with sponsor VaideBet. The club announced that it sent a letter to the company, seeking to clarify the measures adopted in response to the accusations.

The bookmaker had made an extrajudicial notification, alleging the possible existence of an “orange” in the master sponsorship agreement. The deadline for responding was this Thursday. Corinthians reported that it met the deadline, detailing the actions taken to investigate the case.

Also this Thursday, the president of Sport Club Corinthians, Augusto Melo, met with members of Gaviões da Fiel, the club’s main organized fan base.

During the meeting, Melo discussed the situation with VaideBet, but gave no guarantees about the future of the partnership. Thus, he recognized that the club’s political instability could affect the continuity of sponsorship.

Official note from Corinthians on the VaideBet case

Corinthians reported that this Thursday (6) it sent a letter to sponsor VaideBet, clarifying the measures adopted by the club in relation to the intermediation contract, following a request from the brand on May 27.

“Among those informed, Corinthians once again reaffirmed its commitment against any illegal practice, and explained that it continues to collaborate with all authorities in investigations related to third parties.”

“The club also informed that the intermediary was notified for clarification, in addition to hiring a company to carry out an independent investigation, as well as the investigation itself carried out by the Deliberative Council.”

“Corinthians, whose standard contract provides for an anti-corruption clause precisely to avoid this type of wear and tear, has the greatest interest in clarifying all the facts.”

It is worth remembering that the case is being investigated by the Civil Police. Monitoring and management are under the responsibility of the Citizen Protection Police Department (DPPC). Furthermore, the third police station, specialized in investigations related to money laundering, is also monitoring developments.
