Kaizen Gaming’s premium sports betting and online gaming brand, Betano, was the first to occupy the sleeve of the official SL Benfica jersey.

By renewing our support for Benfica, we reaffirm our ongoing commitment to Portugal, the country’s football fans, and its prestigious sporting institutions, as well as the offer of premium, entertaining, and safe betting experiences.”

Bernardo Faria Carvalho, Director of International Expansion at SL Benfica, also expressed his enthusiasm about the extended partnership. “We are very excited to renew our partnership with Betano, a leading sports betting brand that continues to show a strong commitment to football on a global level,” said Carvalho. “This agreement not only reinforces our successful collaboration but also allows us to offer innovative experiences to our fans. The presence of Betano on the sleeve of our shirt symbolizes the importance of this partnership and is vital for our international growth and to consolidate our global presence.”
