The Saints hope that this agreement will help them greatly in their transfers.


boss Ralph Hasenhuttl hopes the new sponsorship deal will help them make good purchases this summer.

The Saints announced that they will have a contract with Coingaming group for another 3 years and the name of this company will remain on the club's shirts. This contract is described as the largest sponsorship deal in the history of the club and some of its payments are made by Bitcoin. Now Hasenhuttl has expressed hope that with the deal, they will be able to make big purchases in the summer.

“I know that there were always some discussions about taking a betting company as a main sponsor on the shirt,”

the Saints boss said.

“But I think in this way to make such a deal in such a moment of the pandemic and in a situation where a lot of teams are struggling getting new sponsorships because all around there are issues with the economy, I think we can definitely be happy about that.

“And that means we have a little bit more safety in planning for the summer, because it will be a hot transfer summer for sure because I expect some big moves also in the summer, but a lot of teams are struggling with their finances.

“If you have that little advantage then you can make maybe a very early good deal, that helps you massively next season."
