Football and casino sponsorships
TOTO is the shirt sponsor of half of these clubs, as players from these nine clubs walk around with a TOTO logo: PSV, Feyenoord, Sparta Rotterdam, Willem II, FC Utrecht, FC Groningen, SC Heerenveen, FC Twente and RKC Waalwijk.
Three clubs play football with BetCity on the shirt, namely AZ, Fortuna Sittard and Vitesse). In the case of GGPoker there are two: Go Ahead Eagles and NEC Nijmegen). That leaves only three clubs in the Eredivisie that are not sponsored by an online gambling company. These are Heracles Almelo, PEC Zwolle and SC Cambuur.
And Betsson casino and Unibet, which has yet to gain access to the legal market, is also expected to sponsor two clubs, namely Ajax, PSV and AZ.
