Cricket Betting Association

Like many cricket clubs, Orissa Cricket is starting to look for alternative ways to generate revenue and gain more members. A common way is to form a cricket betting association. The partnership can help the club generate revenue through direct advertising and even referral fees. As people visit Cricket Betting sites and start betting on their favorite teams the club receives an association commission. Many of the betting association fees can be from 5% up to 10%. It’s a great way to cricket clubs to generate extra revenue and keep membership fees down. But it’s not the only benefit for forming a cricket betting association too; publicity can really help the cricket club.

The second significant benefit of a cricket betting association is when the cricket clubs matches are published on sportsbook sites. As the game receives extra publicity, the club gains a bigger membership. There are sports sites like Parimatch offering odds on 2nd and 3rd tier cricket fixtures. Imagine being covered by one of the biggest sports betting sites – increasing the club’s audience, ultimately driving more club members. As we all know, cricket association’s like Orissa, live and die on membership.
