Betfair, the world’s largest betting exchange, has ended its two-year sponsorship deal with the championship Barcelona football club.

120x60 £

Betfair had previously spent significant marketing dollars on forging partnerships with the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United as well as its sponsorship of Ascot Racecourse.

The company disclosed it will continue to be Man United’s official betting partner during the upcoming season.  Betfair has also brought on former England cricketer Michael Vaughan, retired rugby star Will Greenwood, ex-footballer, and now pundit, Lee Dixon and horse trainer Paul Nicholls to represent its brand.

A Betfair spokesman said: 'Betfair is evolving the way we leverage our sponsor- ship assets to prioritise social platforms, and help build engagement with existing and (potential) customers.'

NFL Divisional Playoff: Baltimore Ravens @ Buffalo Bills Prediction

The Buffalo Bills held off the Indianapolis Colts, 27-24, as Josh Allen threw for 324 yards (with 128 of those yards going to Stefon Diggs). The Colts, despite coming in with the seventh seed, showed why they are a difficult team to stop. They rank in the top ten in the NFL on offense, defense and special teams, and the running of Jonathan Taylor kept Colt drives going, and it also took into the second half for the Bills to solve that Colt defense.
