Midland Monarchs to be sponsored by Betsson.com

The 4 Nations League 1st division team, Midland Monarchs, have changed their name to Betsson.com. In a deal to strengthen the Midland Monarchs team, captain/manager Steve Ledger said ‘We are optimistic of our chances this season and are looking for a top three finish!’

Midland Monarchs have previously won the 4NCL and currently have a number of young dynamic titled players registered for the team, including the 2620 GM Peter Heine Nielsen, IM Adam Hunt, IM Simon Williams and the Perts – Nick, the former World U18 champion and Richard, who is looking to achieve his IM title. The backbone of the team is supported by Betsson’s own answer to the Polgar sisters - the Ledger brothers!

Betsson.com is a betting exchange allowing people from across the World to bet against each other and is dedicated to providing betting markets on chess as well as providing a wide range of other markets on football, tennis, golf and other sports. Betsson are looking to increase awareness of the opportunity to bet on chess and will be offering betting markets on all 4NCL 1st division matches, overall winners of the 1st and 2nd divisions.

Commenting on the sponsorship deal, Chris Duncan of Betsson said ‘We are delighted to be associated with the Midland Monarchs, it’s an ideal tie up, our betting exchange and a team not that adverse to a bet or two!’
