Worldlink expands its services to the STL Northern League

Worldlink Group Plc, (LSE: WGP) the UK listed Company with gatekeeper patents on providing changing data in real-time for mobile devices, announces that it has signed an agreement with Sunderland RCA Football Club to become the first Northern League football club to utilise Worldlink's 'white-labelled' desktop and mobile sports betting and casino services for 'grass roots' sports clubs.

The deal with Sunderland RCA enables not just the Club fans, but also the local community to support the Club financially with the Club earning a percentage of all revenues on sporting events, poker and casino games.  Worldlink's licensed bookmaking partner BetButler, who offer the best sports odds across 60+ bookmakers, assists Worldlink by managing the earnings and returns a percentage to the Club each month.

With the Worldlink service;

·     the betting fan or community gets the best odds

·     no losses are carried over to the following months

·     the portals are dedicated and styled to the Club - with name, logo, and colours

Neil Riches, MD of Worldlink stated: "I am absolutely delighted to announce that Sunderland RCA has agreed to be our first Northern League partner. As well as providing a first class service to the Clubs' fans and local community we see our service as assisting in the running of the Club providing extra cash for improving facilities for players and fans alike. It also allows earnings capacity outside of the normal playing season. Sunderland finished a creditable fourth this season and I am hoping that the additional revenue from the relationship with Worldlink will enhance that position next year."

Colin Wilson, Club Secretary of Sunderland RCA said "We are delighted to welcome Worldlink to the Club and look forward to a long-term relationship with them. The revenue streams will be of great assistance to us in our quest for promotion next year having just missed out this year. It is very important for a club like ours to seek revenue opportunities outside normal facilities available to us. A lot of people I know like to bet and it's great that some of the bookmaker revenues will come back to the club."
