On the 11th of October John Arne Riise, Betsson ambassador, visited our offices in ta' Xbiex with his girlfriend. During the informal meeting Mr.Bengtsson and Mr.Riise discussed Riise's upcoming public profile with regards to his recent appearance in the media.
Riise is very well known in Norway and also gaining a high profile internationally, his future plans are to keep playing football and progressing in his game, difficulties at Fulham mean that he will be joining a new team in the short term. This could bring exciting new times.
Riise says he identifies with the Betsson Brand and visiting the offices helps him feel this synergy.
Mr.Bengtsson said that Mr.Riise gives Betsson a nice connection with the Norwegian market. He intends to continue contributing to Betsson's Social Media and online presence. A commercial video is in the pipeline too as well as a number of studio spots. But we won't give away too much.
By marrying Riise, his girlfriend Louise Angelica Markussen will join the Betsson presence with her lifestyle blog in the coming months. So look out for that coming soon.
