With football tournaments closed and delayed due to COVID-19, Belarus is probably the only coutry in Europe where football matches have not been cancelled. Number of bets on these events more than doubled for local bookmakers.
It is worth noting that fans are not allowed to visit the matches in Belarus. Still local football club Dynamo Brest, sponsored by Favbet, has started the sales of virtual tickets for its fan. Payments for these tickets will be transferred for the fight against COVID-19. The football fans who paid for the virtual tickets can send their photos to the football club. Organizers will later put a dummy with the fans photo and favorite football t-shirt during the match.
Earlier this week, Belarusian Football Federation and the betting company Parimatch announced the expansion of cooperation. The partnership between the federation and Parimatch began this season, which opened the men’s “Parimatch Super Bowl of Belarus”. On April 8, the semi-final stage of the Belarus Cup started with a new name “Parimatch Cup of Belarus” and will be sponsored by the betting company.
