Bristol Flyers are delighted to announce Webgains as the new front of shorts sponsor for the 2020/21 BBL season and principal sponsor of “Flyers TV” – our newly launched video on demand platform.
Webgains is one of the world’s leading high-performance affiliate marketing companies with nine offices across Europe, including three in the UK, of which Bristol is one.
Speaking of the new partnership Richard Dennys CEO of Webgains said:
“We established our Bristol office several years ago and have followed the Flyers and the Bristol Sport group’s journey closely. There is definitely a shared ethos of investing in the region, talent and technology. With the plans for the Sporting Quarter it felt like the right time to get involved.
“We believe that the Flyers partnership will bring a unique element to our business, particularly to our talent recruitment and retention.”
Webgains is part of the ad pepper media group and has more than 1,850 customers in 14 countries from start-ups to global brands. Webgains’ customers have access to one of the world’s leading, high-performance affiliate marketing networks and has recently launched the Affiliate Discovery product to make smarter connections between affiliates and advertisers.
Mark Kelly, Managing Director of Bristol Sport said:
“We’re really pleased to form this partnership with Webgains. It is great to have them involved – from a local point of view having another Bristol-based business supporting and championing sport is excellent, but also as a big European player it aligns with our vision to grow our fanbase and our brand internationally as well as domestically.”
Webgains aims to transform every client into market leaders. The partnership will see Webgains feature on the Flyers’ kit for the first time in their Sky Sports fixture against Leicester Riders tonight (Friday) tip-off at 7:30pm.
