“For this campaign, we decided to partner with Spar Nigeria, which is one of the biggest shopping outlets in Nigeria. We wanted something that will give us publicity, the opportunity to leverage on the existing structure of the brand. We hope to have the campaigns every month in 2019 to entice and excite our users,” he said.

Spar Nigeria’s Marketing Manager, Mr. Emmanuel Isanediok said the outlet had always been associated with good ideas, hence the collaboration with SportyBet.

“Our slogan is living life better, which is why Spar Nigeria is encouraging people to live their lives better. SportyBet does it physically, which is sport, why we do it in terms of what people eat. What we give actually nurtures the body and we encourage people to live a healthy lifestyle,” he stated.
