Worldlink Mobile Application Launching at Ramsgate Football Club

Worldlink Group Plc, (LSE: WGP) the UK listed Company with gatekeeper patents on providing changing data in real-time for mobile devices, announces the launch of its white-labelled mobile betting service at Ramsgate Football Club.

Following on from the launch of the PC-based version of the Worldlink Betbutler online betting application at Ramsgate, the football club has seen the first revenues arrive from the partnership deal. The mobile application will allow supporters of Ramsgate Football Club to place their bets on a mobile device with the guarantee of getting the very best odds provided by the Betbutler service.

Having seen the mobile app launch successfully at Ramsgate, Worldlink will also make the mobile application available to any football club who wish to share in revenues in the same way as Ramsgate does.  This will involve each club marketing the service to their supporters as well as the wider community within which the clubs operate.

"We have received monies from betting on the online website by supporters of the Club as well as supporters of Ramsgate Town through the link on our website Club - and they are also getting the best odds" commented  Richard Lawson, Chairman of Ramsgate Football Club. "We are marketing the service to our fans at the club and to the residents of Ramsgate Town who may wish to support the Club indirectly through this excellent opportunity provided by Worldlink and Betbutler.  We can with confidence promote the application as we know that this gives our supporters the best odds available.  By using the site they are providing additional tangible support to the Club.  Our target is to generate a four figure sum each and every month which may not seem to be a huge amount of money that we are talking about, but for a Club such as Ramsgate, it is the difference between getting by and allowing us to develop the Club further by setting up and supporting new teams and other community-based initiatives."

In addition, Neil Riches, Managing Director of Worldlink said: "It is clear that Ramsgate are pleased to be able to generate additional revenues through our collaborative partnership.  Now that we are launching the mobile application with Ramsgate, it is now our intent to roll out the application as a white label service to any club, and we are looking at approaching other sporting organisations with the same offer."
