Arsenal has welcomed Vbet into its family of official partners by naming the firm as its official betting and gaming partner until 2022.

The tie-up will permit Vbet access to the first-team squad for a range of exclusive content and offers targeted towards fans, with former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour acting as a brand ambassador.

Under the terms of the deal, Vbet will become a presenting partner of The Breakdown, a popular social video hosted by ex-Gunner Adrian Clarke which provides tactical and statistical analysis of past games.
