"During this difficult period, they’ve been outstanding headline partners and we can’t thank Fred [Done, Betfred's owner] and his team enough for their continued support.

"We look forward to continuing to work with them for the next two years.

"To have the support of someone like Fred who is so passionate about Super League and who shares our aspirations for its future is fantastic.”

Done added: “The passion and enthusiasm shown by the fans, media and everybody involved in the game of rugby league is I believe, the essential reason this has proved such an enjoyable and rewarding sponsorship for Betfred and is why I had absolutely no hesitation in extending the Super League deal for at least a further two years.”

As part of the new sponsorship, Super League and Betfred will continue to support the ‘gamble responsibly’ campaign, which is currently promoted at games.
