Sergio Aguero signs Stake.com deal

Agüero will assume his role through to the 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar and beyond, becoming the latest sportsman to sign partnership deals with Stake.com, alongside UFC stars Francis Ngannou and Israel Adesanya.

Agüero retired as Manchester City’s all time leading goalscorer, in addition to experiencing international success in the form of Argentina’s 2021 Copa America triumph.

He said: “I’m delighted to be working with Stake.com and joining their exciting team. I’ve watched on with interest as they have become more involved in football and Stake’s ambitions very closely match my own as I move into a new phase of my post-playing career.

“I can’t wait to get started on all the exciting initiatives we have planned for fans as we build up to the World Cup later this year.”

Stake.com signed a multi-year sponsorship deal with Premier League football club Watford FC, beginning at the start of the 2021-22 season.

CEO Mladen Vuckovic added: “As the January transfer window draws to a close, we’re delighted to announce the signing of Sergio Agüero as our new team star. Sergio’s legacy speaks for itself and he is the perfect fit for us as we continue to expand Stake.com’s global presence.

“We look forward to welcoming Sergio’s fans around the world into the Stake.com community as we celebrate this exciting World Cup year with one of the true icons of the game.”
