Worldlink Announce Collaboration with Ramsgate FC
Worldlink and Ramsgate Football Club are pleased to announce the launch of the Ramsgate Football Club betting service. This new service will allow people who bet regularly to support their favourite clubs. As a feature of the service, 20% of the profits generated by any betting through the Ramsgate website will be returned to the club which can be used for the development of the club and its facilities.
The service launch will kick off a nationwide campaign by Worldlink, assisted by the management team, led by Chairman Richard Lawson. This service is unique in many ways. A user of the service will benefit from the best odds available from any bookmaker by Worldlink's relationship with BetButler. The real-time data mobile element of the service is protected by Worldlink's gatekeeper patents. In addition, a proportion of revenue will be donated to a chosen charity during large competitions such as the European Championships, and other major events days.
Neil Riches, Managing Director of Worldlink commented: 'Worldlink will always look to come up with innovative ways to support the local community, charities, and foundations. The service will be available to any club wishing to participate and will help cover its overheads and increase its performances on the pitch. It will also be patent protected from services that are similar over mobile devices. Richard will be a great 'guiding light' in getting the service into the clubs and leagues all over the country'.
Richard Lawson, Chairman of Ramsgate, said: 'The service Worldlink are providing will greatly assist all non-League clubs in their day to day running and will greatly support grass roots level football. It is a fantastic initiative which we all at Ramsgate welcome and will act as pioneers. We will also assist in the nationwide roll-out using our carefully selected management team. Hundreds, if not thousands of clubs will have the service by the end of next year. This is ground-breaking news - especially in the current climate where a lot of smaller clubs are struggling.'
