Blackburn Rovers have revealed that sportsbook BetUK will be the club’s sleeve sponsor for their match tonight against Newcastle United. 

The Championship side is playing live on BBC One and BBC iPlayer against the Magpies of the Premier League in the fifth round of the FA Cup at their home ground, Ewood Park. 

BetUK’s branding will be present on the sleeve of the Blackburn shirts during the match tonight, as Rovers look to book their place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup 

Blackburn Rovers Chief Executive, Steve Waggott, said: “We are delighted to welcome BetUK on board as our sleeve sponsors for Tuesday night’s FA Cup fifth-round tie under the Ewood Park lights against Premier League opposition.  

“There have been some fantastic matches in the past between Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United, and we are looking forward to the game, which will broadcast to millions all over the World.  

“The FA Cup is steeped in tradition, and is considered one of the most prestigious competitions in World football, and we thank BetUK for showing their support for Blackburn Rovers by being our sleeve partner for the game.”   

LeoVegas Group Director of UK, Ireland, and Sponsorships, Sam Behar, added: "We are thrilled to be partnering with Blackburn Rovers ahead of this exciting 'Alan Shearer derby' against Newcastle United! It’s going to be a fantastic game, and we can’t wait to see the BetUK logo on the Rovers' sleeve as they take on the Magpies." 

Last year also saw Blackburn announce a partnership with Spreadex, while MightyTips announced a collaboration with Blackburn and Lewis Travis.
