Rugby Super League fans across the country are today reacting to news that Foxy Bingo has been announced as their ‘official bingo partner’.
A three year deal was announced today by Super League Commerical Director James Mercer, who said,
“It gives me great pleasure to welcome Foxy Bingo on board as an official partner of Super League for the next three years. We look forward to working closely with Foxy Bingo and to developing a partnership which will enhance our successful brands.”
