7 June 2021, London — LV BET welcomes former Liverpool and Republic of Ireland football star Jason McAteer as a brand ambassador for the UK and Ireland markets.
McAteer, who appeared at the 1994 and 2002 FIFA World Cups for Ireland and won 52 caps for his country, will provide expert insight and match previews exclusively via LV BET’s channels, beginning with UEFA Euro 2020 and then throughout the 2021-22 season.
“This promises to be a thrilling summer of football, and I’m very much looking forward to linking up with LV BET during the Euros and giving my views on the great players on show and the fabulous matches we are anticipating. It’s an exciting time, with fans returning to stadiums, so I am thrilled to be sharing my thoughts on the game we all love ahead of the Euros and into the 2021-22 season.” — Jason McAteer
McAteer has made over 400 appearances during his career and played for five professional clubs: Bolton Wanderers, Liverpool, Blackburn Rovers, Sunderland and Tranmere Rovers. He will share his experiences and memorable moments with LV BET through a series of interviews that will be published on the bookmaker’s blog and social media.
Among his most unforgettable milestones are the remarkable goal against the Netherlands that secured Ireland’s place at the 2002 World Cup and an appearance for Liverpool in the 1996 FA Cup Final, alongside the likes of Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and John Barnes, during a four-year spell with the team McAteer supported since boyhood.
McAteer’s cooperation with LV BET as an ambassador will focus primarily on the operator’s social media channels in association with its sponsorships. McAteer’s fans and supporters of his former clubs can look forward to engaging content and the retired footballer’s thoughts on the game ahead of the Euros and into the 2021-22 season.
