Gambling Insider was in attendance in Nice as Ballon d’Or and Champions League-winning ex-footballer Luís Figo signed an agreement with sportsbook and iGaming supplier Digitain.
Under the slogan ‘cooperating with the legend,’ Figo signed as brand ambassador alongside Digitain Founder Vardges Vardanyan, as the two parties look to embark on a long-term collaboration.
Former Portugal, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Inter Milan footballer Figo praised the values of the gambling company as he held aloft a Digitain shirt with the number seven and his name written on the back.
Promoting the values of a long-term partnership, Figo sat down with Gambling Insider to discuss the deal, as well as reflecting on his playing career.
Vardanyan, meanwhile, believes the deal will elevate the whole iGaming industry, not just Digitain individually.
Figo exclusively told Gambling Insider: “For me, it was important to know a little bit about what the company is doing. It’s a global company and, because it’s a leader in this area, it was nothing but positive when the chance came to accept the partnership.”
