Tottenham’s Gareth Bale has signed a huge three-year sponsorship deal with BT TV (which recently won the rights to broadcast a number of top-flight fixtures)which will begin next season.
“I am delighted to continue my relationship with BT by becoming a BT Ambassador. I feel honoured to join an exciting band of inspirational sporting figures, which has included Olympic heroes like the Brownlee brothers and Paralympic gold medallist Jonnie Peacock,” Bale said.
“A great deal has changed in my football career since my first partnership with BT, and I am happy to extend that relationship for the next three years. I am excited about the launch of BT Sport and I am happy to play my part in making it a big hit.”
He will feature in TV adverts and appear as a guest on BT’s new sports channel. This might be the strongest indication that Bale could remain a Premier League player beyond the end of this season
