Bulgarian footballing legend embraces new rebrand from RB88 to JBO, a leading Asian eSportsbook and Sportsbook operator
Footballing icon Dimitar Berbatov has broken new ground by becoming the first official brand ambassador for JBO (Just Bet Online), the leading Asian sports betting operator.
Berbatov will spearhead this rebrand with a series of dedicated promotions and activations for the most renowned and progressive eSports and Sportsbook operator in Asia.
Regarded as perhaps the greatest Bulgarian footballer of all time, Berbatov’s engaging appeal and timeless track-record of on-field ingenuity matches perfectly with JBO’s own inventive brand values. Having played for many of the world’s most storied football teams – notably Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Bayer Leverkusen, Fulham and Monaco – Berbatov instantly connects with football fan-bases worldwide.
JBO prides itself on a rich heritage in football and international sports, with a sponsorship portfolio to match. Having successfully worked with Bologna FC in Serie A, and secured the title sponsorship of the Dota 2 eSports event at the JBO Asian Masters League, JBO is now also the official betting of Olympique de Marseille in France’s Ligue 1. Away from Europe, this established brand is also partnering with VICI Gaming, the biggest eSports organization in China.
JBO has an aggressive and ambitious expansion plan over the past 12 months, growing its global footprint into more emerging markets, empowered by the operator’s mantra to engage, educate and entertain.
A JBO spokesperson welcomed the brand’s flagship ambassador: “We’re thrilled to have Dimitar Berbatov continuing his services as JBO’s breakthrough brand ambassador. Dimitar was always a natural entertainer on the field, and both he and JBO look to achieve our goals in the most creative and enjoyable way possible. Of course, there’ll also be the chance for our customers to gain exclusive insight and analysis from one of the brightest minds in football.
“JBO intends to harness this breakout international partnership to drive awareness and participation around our brand values across both mature and developing Asian territories. We’re constantly looking for original ways to engage with our customers across digital channels and betting verticals.
“Dimitar is a dream fit for the energy and expertise that JBO is spreading across varied local markets, and allows us to raise the game for fan experiences and social traction.”
Berbatov, Bulgaria’s all-time leading goalscorer, added: “I’m happy to be continuing my services with JBO in Asia.
“As a result, I look forward to bringing some top-class content and activity to Asian markets with my trademark style and professionalism, helping fans discover new and deeper ways in which to engage with and enjoy the sports they love.”
While JBO continues to develop its online offerings for football fans around the world, this latest milestone highlights its commitment to international representation and fostering a football-friendly environment within a responsible gaming culture.
JBO prides itself on a gamified betting experience, thanks to a unique interface and personalised customer service that delivers a cohesive player journey from the log-in until the end. This seamless experience has also ensured record levels of retention and consumer satisfaction amongst its loyal base.
