Derby County’s partnership with the Kindred Group - which is set to enter its fourth season - will see their Unibet brand being featured on the club’s trainingwear for the 2021/22 Season.
Along with the club’s principal shirt sponsor, 32Red, Unibet are owned by the Kindred Group and, in addition to continuing to be the club’s in-stadium betting partner, they have now opted to showcase their branding for the upcoming campaign with the Unibet logo being featured on the first-team players and coaching staff’s trainingwear.
The Kindred Group has a demonstrable commitment to all of the sports it sponsors including boxing, horse racing and darts; and has also aligned its sponsorship strategy with promoting responsible gambling and leveraging the power of football to benefit communities across the country.
Additionally, under the 32Red banner, the Kindred Group continues to sponsor Derby County Community Trust’s Team Talk programme.
A key element of the Team Talk programme is to provide a mechanism to engage with men about their mental health. In its first year it ran across four hubs before switching to virtual delivery due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
