Betting company Betfred have extended their partnership with the Championship and League One for another two years.

The Warrington based company have been in rugby league since sponsoring the Super League in 2017 and then the Championship and League One in 2018.

They even extended their coverage earlier this year with the naming rights for the Women’s Super League.

Rugby Football League Chief Executive, Ralph Rimmer, said: “Betfred have been supporting our Championship and League 1 competitions since 2018 and I am delighted that they will continue that support for a further two years.

“Their energy and enthusiasm off the field mirrors the product on the field, where clubs and players are beginning to gear up for what will be a thrilling play-off series in two vibrant competitions.”

Betfred boss Fred Done added: “We’ve enjoyed a great relationship with Rugby League and its supporters and therefore I am delighted that we are now able to further extend our sponsorship of the Championship and League 1 in line with our recent Super League and Women’s Super League agreements.

“Sport provides tremendous content for our digital platforms and we are delighted that through deals like these we are able to be a part of it.”

The news comes amid increasing uncertainty surrounding the Championship over a new television rights deal.
