The French National Rugby League (LNR) has announced a partnership with betting platform Betclic, which will see Betclic as the official sponsor of the Top 14 rugby competition.

The partnership is effective from the next rugby season and will last until the end of the 2023-2024 season.

“We are very proud to become a partner of the LNR and the Top 14.” said Nicolas Béraud, founder and chief executive of Betclic.

“This is a major league in French sport and the number one rugby competition in the world. The unique offer that we are going to deploy as part of this partnership will allow all rugby fans in France to experience the Top 14 like nowhere else and to exalt their passion for sport.”

As part of the sponsorship, Betclic imagery will continue to be featured on all Top 14 matches, with plans to expand digitally.

Betclic will also feature in the Top 14 official statistics during match broadcasts, in stadiums and on LNR digital platforms.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has severely affected professional sport as a whole.” said Emmanuel Eschalier, general manager of the National Rugby League. “In this context, we are delighted to note that the Top 14 is considered a true symbol of attractiveness by embodying the excellence of rugby and its values.”

“Betclic is the fourth new partner to join the league since the start of the 2020-2021 season. Professional rugby is proud to be supported by a leading partner in its sector.”
