The agreement will cover the broadcast of the Playoffs, the Super Bowl and Sunday and Monday Night Football.
“This is the start of an exciting chapter for 888sport,” said Guy Cohen, senior vice president and head of B2C at 888 Holdings. “We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of live sporting experiences and we’re delighted to partner with an internationally adored brand such as the NFL.
