Ladbrokes to feature in one-off Roar jersey deal for Liverpool clash

Embattled A-League side Brisbane Roar will wear jerseys with sponsor Ladbrokes emblazoned across the front for their marquee clash with English giants Liverpool on July 17.

The news came after regular shirt sponsors The Coffee Club cut ties with the Roar yesterday after an eight year partnership.

Brisbane's jerseys for the match will be a one-off, with the club hoping to secure a major sponsor before the commencement of the new A-League season in August.

James Burnett, Chief Marketing Officer at Ladbrokes Australia, said the company were excited at the opportunity that had presented itself against such a high profile team.

"This is the first time Ladbrokes have had front-of-shirt position on a jersey and we are delighted that it is for such a high-profile game," Burnett told Roar's official website.
