England cricket legend to attend Betting on Sports with Mr Green

Betting on Sports 2017, held on September 12-15, will provide delegates with the opportunity to meet England’s most successful Test cricket captain, Michael Vaughan.

Vaughan, the test captain between July 2003 and August 2008, racked up a record 26 wins in charge of the team, with only 11 defeats in his 51-match reign. His 18 centuries included a score of 166 in the third test of England’s infamous Ashes series win in the summer of 2005.

As a brand ambassador and the first ever ‘Sports Gent’ for Mr Green, one of 15 first-time exhibitors at #boscon2017, he will be appearing at the second edition of the largest international sports and betting conference alongside Enda Gaffney, the company’s head of sportsbook.

The former number one ranked test batsman in world cricket will also be completing a 20-minute Q&A at the Mr Green Stand during the mid-morning refreshment break on the first full day of the conference (Wednesday September 13).

Vaughan said: “During my time with Mr Green, I've been impressed by the smartness they bring to their operations. As someone who enjoys the occasional fun bet and the chance to deliver great tips and offers, I'm looking forward to representing the brand at Betting on Sports, and engaging in a Q&A session with fellow sports enthusiasts.”

Alex Beecham of Mr Green commented: “We are delighted that Michael Vaughan, one of the best cricketers of his generation and our first ever 'Sports Gent', has committed to representing Mr Green at the conference, just a few days after the conclusion of England’s test series against West Indies. We expect him to be a big hit with our affiliates at the event, as well as with cricket lovers across the sector.”

The world of cricket is an interesting betting market, with concerns over integrity on an international level, but exactly how to embrace the sport from a betting perspective is just one of the topics that will be discussed in a newly added cricket session on the second day at Betting on Sports.

The panel, which includes Genius executive director Anthony Charles, will also assess Unibet’s Official Betting partnership with Warwickshire CCC, which includes the delivery of betting opportunities around Birmingham Bears’ home matches in the T20 Blast.
