Betway and the defending National Basketball Association (NBA) champions, the Milwaukee Bucks, announced a multi-year partnership. The agreement provides for the betting site to act as the Bucks’ official gambling partner. The bookie will benefit from extensive branding in the Fiserv Forum, the home arena of the franchise.
In addition, a new feature called “Betway Game Rewind” appears on the digital presences of the Milwaukee Bucks. In this way, the NBA titleholder highlights the last game against the upcoming opponent on its social media channels.
Nine cooperation partners in the NBA and four in the NHL
Behind the top-ranked Miami Heat, the Chicago Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Bucks occupy fourth place in the Eastern Conference. In this context, the three teams ranked ahead of the defending champions also represent partners of Betway. Additionally, the betting site supports the Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference.
Moreover, the bookmaker cooperates with four teams in the Western Conference. Namely, we refer to the Golden State Warriors, the Los Angeles Clippers, the Minnesota Timberwolves, and the Dallas Mavericks. This makes the Milwaukee Bucks the ninth NBA franchise to cooperate with Betway.
Additionally, there are four in the National Hockey League (NHL). More specifically, the company sponsors the Los Angeles Kings, the New York Islanders, the New Jersey Devils, and the Philadelphia Flyers.
With Jordan Nwora, a Nigerian team player, belongs to the Bucks family
Betway’s Managing Director Anthony Werkman commented, “We are delighted to welcome the Milwaukee Bucks to our family of partners and to add them to our impressive portfolio in the NBA. This team is having a great NBA season, and we look forward to celebrating their successes together.”
The Bucks’ Chief Business Development and Strategy Officer Matt Pazaras added: “Betway proved to be a fantastic partner from the start, and we look forward to expanding our relationship with one of the leading online betting and gaming brands.”
A Nigerian national team player, the small forward Jordan Nwora, has been assigned from the Bucks to Wisconsin Herd. So, he’s playing in the NBA G League. Before that, he joined the titleholder in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Alice is half Austrian and half Italian. That's why she experienced the 1990 World Cup in Italy at first hand. And that awakened her enthusiasm for football. Since she has loved writing since childhood, Alice began to study journalism while still at school. It was very convenient for her that her class took part in a project of a German daily newspaper. She was also allowed to write for the children's pages of an Austrian daily newspaper and to get a taste of the sports department of the same medium. This is how she received her first press accreditations, which was of course anything but a matter of course for the then 18-year-old.
Although she was partly advised against it, Alice decided to study journalism and communication sciences. After a few years, she decided to use the exams she had taken as an elective. Nevertheless, she applies the knowledge she has acquired in her further professional life. The same applies to her language skills. In addition to her mother tongues German and Italian, Alice is also proficient in English and Spanish. She also understands French and can use this language in research.
During her studies, Alice was involved in an Austrian football club. At the same time, she wrote for a total of three Austrian portals and worked as an Austria correspondent for an Italian-language online medium. This collaboration started during Giovanni Trapattoni's era at Red Bull Salzburg and continued during EURO 2008. This gave her the opportunity to interact with Trapattoni as well as with Italian journalists.
From the following year, Alice initially worked with a Swiss portal before discovering sports betting content for herself. On the one hand, this kept her in sports journalism, and on the other, it broadened her horizons. And that both in the context of the sports betting industry and with other sports as well as countries. In the field of sports journalism, she focused in particular on football from around the world, volleyball and beach volleyball.
In addition, she naturally wrote several guides, bookmaker profiles, bonus articles and other content for betting enthusiasts. She did this for the same company for about ten years, writing articles in German and Italian. She also built the Italian-language website together with the managing director. Meanwhile, Alice started working with another Austrian football club. Furthermore, she joined the Association Internationale de la Presse Sportive (AIPS) in 2016. This gives her the opportunity to watch teams and athletes on the ground relatively often.
Not only sports betting, but also radio
In January 2019, the next step in her professional development followed. For: she started creating premium content on the topic of sports betting. In the process, she finally put out feelers to almost all countries and all continents. And this was not least due to the fact that both German and English-speaking users subscribed to her content. Nevertheless, Alice continued to use her knowledge of Italian, among other things. On the one hand, because she regularly exchanges ideas with Italian colleagues, and on the other, because she works with a web radio station.
The Corona crisis had a strong impact on the sports world and on interest in sports betting, primarily in the early days. Therefore, a fresh start was necessary and, on balance, Alice found the fields of activity that suited her best. She also writes articles for an agency on almost all disciplines as well as on eSports and content for a German online medium.
