As part of the deal, Given will be a part of LeoVegas’ social media platforms, as well as give his insight on the biggest stories in the footballing world.

Given said of his new role: “I’m delighted to sign for LeoVegas. After many years of playing in the Premier League for some really incredible teams and representing Ireland at major tournaments, I look forward to sharing my views and football tips.”

Meanwhile, Sam Behar, Director of UK and Ireland at LeoVegas Group, added: “To have an Irish sporting hero like Shay Given on board shows the huge strides LeoVegas is making in the Irish market.

“We are excited to be able to share Shay's unique insights on all the big games for the rest of the season and, of course, offer our customers special offers, giveaways, and the greatest iGaming experience along the way".

In recent news, LeoVegas posted a 1% revenue drop for Q3 2022.

Total revenue for the year stood at €295.2m, which topped 2021’s total of €292.9m up to the same point and will be far greater by the end of the year.

For LeoVegas, the complete revenue haul for 2021 stood at €391m, which – so long as the Swedish business does not have a nightmare of a Q4 – it should be able to beat come the next set of financial results in early 2023.
