Cryptocurrency supporting sportsbook Sportsbet.io has been named by the Confederation of Independent Football Associations (CONIFA) as the premier sponsor for World Football Cup 2020 to be held in Skopje, the Republic of North Macedonia.
CONIFA is the international governing body of football for nations, de-facto nations, regions, minority peoples, and sports isolated territories not recognized by FIFA.
The two had earlier worked together during the CONIFA Sportsbet.io European Football Cup 2019 held in the Republic of Artsakh.
Justin Le Broque, Head of Marketing at Sportsbet.io, said, “Sportsbet.io is proud to continue our sponsorship of CONIFA with next year’s World Football Cup.” He also commented on the resounding success of the Sportsbet.io CONIFA European Football Cup, calling it “festival of football” where people got a chance to see new players playing football passionately.
Reminding everyone that both Sportsbet.io and CONIFA were anti-status quo in the sense that both were outliers in their respective fields, he said that both of them had the courage of facing odds defiantly, and they couldn’t wait to welcome the world to Skopje.
Sascha Duerkop, CONIFA General Secretary, supported the choice of Skopje for hosting the World Cup and said, “It’s a fantastic city with great facilities, and we look forward to heading there next summer to watch some fantastic football.”
Jens Jockel, CONIFA Asia President who had visited Skopje personally to check whether it was capable of hosting such an event dispelled doubts about the popularity of football in Macedonia and its ability to host an event of such magnitude. He said, “If you’ve not associated Macedonia with football before, you will see after the World Football Cup 2020!”
The CONIFA Sportsbet.io World Football Cup will include 16 teams and will be held from May 30-June 7, 2020.
The tournament fixtures will be decided in a draw that will be held during the CONIFA Annual General Meeting in Jersey on January 24-26, 2020.
