Svenska Spel to form ‘interactive’ Beijing 2022 microsite with Spotlight Sports
Spotlight Sports Group (SSG) has introduced a Swedish language interactive Winter Olympics microsite for state-owned gambling company, Svenska Spel.
The enterprise has stated that it will build, host and manage the site which will include SSG’s independent previews, giving Svenska Spel customers betting odds as well as expert analysis.
Dan Korhonen, Svenska Spel Head of Sports Betting Product, shared how the localised reach of coverage was a key focus of the project.
In covering sports across the 16 days of action, Korhonen noted: “Working with Spotlight Sports Group is an exciting time for us and our customers. The Winter Olympics presents an opportunity to engage our customers across multiple events throughout two weeks of sports.
“The tech, insight and editorial from the Spotlight Sports Group team, delivered in our localised language will offer our customers an exciting user experience for such a big event.’’
Furthermore, the technology, content and media business’ site is also the home to a full event guide and calendar linked to key betting markets to give users details of each day’s sporting events.
As an official sponsor of the Swedish Winter Olympic team, the firm will use the site as a place for its players to keep up to date with the team’s participation across the upcoming competition.
Spotlight Sports Group Account Director, James Fitzpatrick, added: “We’re delighted to be bringing industry-leading Winter Olympics coverage to Svenska Spel customers. The depth of betting editorial means we can provide insight, analysis and betting angles throughout the games and bring customers beyond the odds.
“Delivering in Swedish, Svenska Spel can use the microsite to activate their sponsorship of the Swedish Winter Olympics team and create a content destination for their customers.”
In further sports, last month it was revealed that Svensk Fotboll (SVFF), Sweden’s Football Association, renewed Svenska Spel as the principal sponsor of Swedish national football teams for a further seven years.
This partnership now expires in 2028 and sees the operator support SVFF civic projects promoting diversity, equality and inclusion of Swedish football.
