32Red, the Gibraltar-based AIM-listed online casino and poker operator, has signed a seven figure sponsorship deal with Aston Villa.

The two-year deal, beginning next season, will see the 32Red logo plastered on the footy club's shirts.

32Red chief exec Ed Ware said the deal would give the online gaming outfit national TV and press exposure.

"Aston Villa FC is one of the UK's biggest clubs and we are very pleased to be associated with them," he said. ®
