Marathonbet will be the title sponsor of Ukrainian football club Karpaty starting from the 2018/19 season. The company’s logo will appear on the club’s kit, across the Ukraina Stadium in Lviv, on press banners for interviews with players and coaches, and on merchandise.

“It is an honour for our club to work with the Marathonbet brand – one of the leaders in the global market”, Yuri Korotysh, CEO of FC Karpaty, said. “I am sure that long-term cooperation will benefit both sides. Our players will be proud to wear shirts with the Marathonbet logo.”

FC Karpaty (Lviv) were founded in 1963, and six years later became the only team in history to win the USSR Cup without having played in the first division. In the 21st century the team finished in the top five of the league twice and played in the Europa League, including the group stages in the 2010/11 season. The capacity of their stadium is 28 000.
