Now it’s official! Botafogo already has a new master sponsor. The club signed a contract with the Parimatch bookmaker, which will occupy the main space in the team’s uniform for the next 2 years.

This is the biggest sponsorship contract in Botafogo’s 128-year history, which in early 2022 approved the creation of the club’s SAF, acquired by businessman John Textor, through the holding company Eagle Football. The contract is valid from January 2023 to December 2024.

The partnership will be of great importance in Parimatch’s growth plans in Brazil. At the same time, as it has an international scope, it will also contribute to Botafogo’s expansion plans.

“Botafogo is experiencing a period of international repositioning with the growth of Eagle Football, and is restructuring itself in all sectors to attract the best partners. We are happy to be the club chosen by Parimatch, a giant in the betting market, to expand its business across Brazil. Great satisfaction in signing the biggest sponsorship contract in the club’s history. Welcome Parimatch,” said John Textor, President of Eagle Football.

Anton Rublievskyi, CEO of Parimatch International, said: “In Brazil, football is not just a game – it is a cultural phenomenon that brings people together. It unites young and old, women and men, rich and poor, making the blood flow faster in their veins as they watch or play their favorite game. We were looking for a team that shared our values, had a rich history, loyal fans and BIG ambitions for the future.”

“We’re sure we’ve found RIGHT — Botafogo. It’s a great honor for us to join this team and conquer new heights together! Let’s start the new year strong and continue to support and grow the sports industry in Brazil”, completed the executive.

About Botafogo

Founded in 1894, Botafogo has more than 4 million fans in Brazil and worldwide. In March 2022, Botafogo became SAF (private football clubs) and John Textor took over as majority shareholder. Botafogo is a forerunner of the professionalization of Brazilian football, being the first top-tier club to be acquired by a foreign investor.

The SAF opened new perspectives and new investments, and the current moment is special in historical terms. With this new structure, Botafogo became part of the Eagle Football Holdings multi-club network, which repositioned the Club on a new level of global strategy alongside Olympique Lyon, Crystal Palace and RWD Molenbeek.

Internationally recognized for being the club where some of the best known athletes of all time played, such as Garrincha and Nilton Santos, it is popularly known as “O Glorioso” and called by its fans “The Most Traditional Club” due to its history of greatness. .
