Spl Favourites To Get Goal-line Technology First!

The goal-line technology argument will be hitting the headlines after the Bolton / QPR game and William Hill are betting on which European league will host the first match involving goal-line technology.

William Hill, the UK’s No.1 bookmaker, has signed a seven-figure deal with the Scottish FA to become the title sponsor of the Scottish Cup.

The three-year partnership means the famous cup competition will be renamed the William Hill Scottish Cup.

William Hill, which operates over 300 betting shops in Scotland and a total of 2364 across the UK and Ireland, is already the official betting partner of the Scottish Premier League. The Scottish Cup sponsorship deal reaffirms their strong association with Scottish football. The agreement will also allow the bookmaker to showcase its online, mobile and retail products to Scottish football fans the length and breadth of the country.

The William Hill Scottish Cup first round draw will take place in Glasgow’s Buchanan Galleries Shopping Centre on Monday, August 29, at 10am. The draw will be conducted by last year’s victorious captain, Celtic’s Scott Brown, the Scottish FA President, Campbell Ogilvie, and Kristof Fahy, William Hill’s Group Brand and Marketing Director.

Stewart Regan, Scottish FA Chief Executive, said: “We are proud to have a leading brand like William Hill as sponsor of the Scottish Cup for the next three seasons. The new 2011/12 William Hill Scottish Cup begins in just a few weeks’ time and with the competition now securing a new sponsor, we can now look forward another exciting season ahead.”

Gareth Davis, Chairman of William Hill PLC, said: “It seems fitting for the most established and biggest bookmaker in Scotland to be attached to the oldest Association trophy in world football and we at William Hill consider it an honour to be able to put our name to the Scottish Cup.”

New Spl Season…latest Odds

The start of the new Scottish Premier League is upon us and William Hill cannot split the Old Firm clubs offering 5/6 for both sides to win this year’s SPL title. Hearts appear to be in pole position for the ‘best of the rest’ honours offered at 5/4 in the SPL without Old Firm sides followed by Dundee Utd at 10/30. At the other end of the table, newly promoted Dunfermline are the 5/2 favourites to finish bottom of the league with St Mirren 3/1.

Rangers striker Nickica Jelavic is the 3/1 joint favourite to win the SPL golden boot with Gary Hooper, with Celtic’s Anthony Stokes and Dundee Utd’s David Goodwillie 8/1.

There is a three way tie at the top of the SPL sack race, with Hearts’ Jim Jeffries, St Johnstone’s Derek McInnes and Kilmarnock’s Kenny Shiels all seemingly in the firing line as 4/1 joint favourites.

“The football season kicks off early this season, easing the anguish of a tournament free summer and we have a number of bets to keep every SPL punter involved until the final day,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

SCOTTISH PREMIER LEAGUE
PRESS RELEASE
11 August 2010 For Immediate Release
MORE NEW DEALS ANNOUNCED AHEAD OF SEASON KICK OFF
The Scottish Premier League (SPL) today announced a raft of new commercial deals ahead of the
forthcoming season. These deals were approved by the clubs at Friday’s General Meeting.
For the next two seasons, STV have acquired the rights to use SPL footage across their daily new
bulletins and their Sports Centre programme broadcast ahead of each weekend’s fixtures. STV will
also be assisting the SPL to produce over 100 matches each season and manage their archive
content going back to 1998.
Radio Clyde meanwhile have secured goalflash rights for 2010/11. This will mean that their
listeners will be kept up to speed with all the action on match days from around the grounds on
Clyde 1 and Clyde 2 Superscoreboard.
In addition, William Hill will become the SPL’s ‘Official Betting Partner’, a first for the league. This
deal will see William Hill‘s latest promotions featured on the SPL official website –

Separately, a deal has been struck with Moray Firth Radio (MFR) to broadcast live commentary at
all Inverness Caledonian Thistle games in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League next season.
Neil Doncaster, Chief Executive of the SPL, commented, “We’ve been working hard over the
summer to pull together a range of commercial deals. So, it is really pleasing that we are able to
announce them ahead of the big kick off on Saturday.
“We’ve had to be creative in how we have structured some of these deals but by doing this we have
been able to deliver. Our key aims have been to drive more investment into the league, and in turn
our clubs, and to broaden the coverage of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League. We look forward
to working with MFR, William Hill, Radio Clyde and STV to do so in the coming season.”
William Hill Operations Controller Scotland, Brian McColgan, commented, “William Hill are delighted
to become the SPL’s first official betting partner. As Scotland’s major bookmakers, and the
industry’s longest established and most innovative company, we are keen to emphasise our
commitment to promoting and supporting Scottish football through our 300+ branches in Scotland
and via our online presence, which has a worldwide following. Together we can raise and enhance
the profile of Scottish football.”
Bobby Hain, MD of Broadcasting at STV, said: “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with
the SPL. We’re ideally placed to provide them with a range of key services and today’s deal allows
us to provide football fans across Scotland with a dedicated Clydesdale Bank Premier League
football show every Friday evening, in addition to our weeknight Sports Centre updates.”
Head of News and Sport at Radio Clyde, Lorraine Herbison, said, “We are thrilled to have secured
this deal with the SPL and know this is sure to prove a real highlight for our avid listeners in
Glasgow and the west of Scotland. Superscoreboard has some great personalities on the
programme and has a really loyal following.
“Securing the goalflash rights, allowing us to go round the grounds, underlines our commitment to
bringing the best in sports coverage direct to our listeners and enhances the show even further.
The new look programme launched on Monday night and was also the debut show for Jim
Delahunt, our new anchor. It is already proving very popular with our listeners.”
Danny Gallagher, Managing Director at MFR said: “I am absolutely delighted to have negotiated this
deal with the SPL for our listeners. Many have made it known that they would love MFR to follow the
first division champions as they move back up to the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.
