Volleyball New Zealand is pleased to announce a new partnership with the New Zealand Racing Board.
The agreement will allow the TAB (owned by the New Zealand Racing Board) to accept bets on Volleyball.
“We are excited that we can now take bets on Volleyball, the timing is perfect with Rio just around the corner,” Carl Jackson from the New Zealand Racing Board says.
Paul Cameron, CEO of Volleyball NZ, is pleased with the new relationship as a percentage of the betting on Volleyball will be returned back to Volleyball NZ.
“We are comfortable to enter an agreement where the Volleyball community as well as the wider New Zealand community can now be engaged in Volleyball through regulated betting” Cameron says.
“Through this new agreement any monies coming to our federation will be invested into the future of Volleyball.”
In the coming months only Volleyball played outside of New Zealand will be offered to TAB customers.
The news follows from a recent policy adopted by Volleyball NZ around Anti Match Fixing to ensure the integrity of sport in New Zealand is maintained.
It is anticipated much interest in one of the world’s most popular sports will be heightened with Rio only days away.
