Betcris, the Latin American leader in the sports gambling industry, has announced that it has renewed its current agreement with the Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) to continue as its official gambling partner. The renewal will see the two entities extend their partnership for one more year, which means that Betcris will continue bringing to CEBL fans an outstanding betting experience by offering services on its many digital platforms.

This is exciting news for both parties, as it becomes an ideal scenario that brings high value to all involved. Mike Morreale, commissioner & CEO of the CEBL, explains, “Extending the partnership with Betcris is an excellent example of working with a partner that values the CEBL, and the excitement and entertainment that the league brings both on and off the court.”

In this current deal, the CEBL provides real-time scores, game statistics, previews, and player data through its software, FIBA LiveStats, to Betcris. All throughout this 2020 season, this data will help Betcris prepare the most attractive betting features on every platform to ensure fans have access to the most accurate data for league wagers. With more technology being applied to entertainment, this is great news for the CEBL, and Morreale adds, “As the online betting landscape continues to expand, we look to continuously provide our fans with additional entertainment options before, during, and after the game with a world-class partner like Betcris.”

No other men’s professional basketball league runs during spring and summer seasons. The CEBL features world-class quality professional basketball and entertainment, friendly for all fans across seven cities in Canada. This upcoming season comes with a new addition to the league, the Ottawa BlackJacks. This means that the league will now have seven teams total, and this extra team will increase the number of games from 60 to 75. This should be great news for fans, as it brings more hours of entertainment to basketball enthusiasts, as well as more betting options. And, to top it off, this year’s league format was also improved, and those seven teams will now battle to become one of the six finalists that will be part of the 2020 Championship Weekend. That event will be hosted this year by Edmonton, home of the Edmonton Singers.

Betcris is just as excited as the CEBL about renewing the contract and being able to add more excitement for basketball fans. JD Duarte, the company’s CEO, states, “This renewal marks an important step in the growth of our operations, as it demonstrates our commitment to being a key player in the gaming industry. We’re proud to be partnered with the CEBL and look forward to a long and productive relationship.”
