Betclic is a French bookmaker, who are licensed to accept bets by the Gibraltar Gambling Commission. The company was formed in 2005 and has since gone on to become one of the most recognizable and trusted brands within the European betting market. The company’s origins are extremely humble; starting out with a single employee and €3 million of its founder’s own money invested. Nicolas Beraud was that founder and continues to lead the business to this day, although he now has a team of 600 employee’s supporting him and a variety of investors, such as Stephane Courbit and SBM.

The company’s expansion was so fast that in 2009 they sponsored Lyon, a particularly dominant French football team, just four years after their inception. This fact becomes even more astounding when you consider that their name wasn’t even allowed to appear on the shirt until June 2010 due to advertising laws in France. In the years that followed, Betclic also became the primary shirt sponsor of two other European powerhouses of football in Olympique de Marseille and Juventus, both of whom have enjoyed immense success in recent years.
The company has recently recruited the French world cup winning defender Marcel Desailly to act as an ambassador for the bookmaker and take on general promotional activities. This has once again given Betclic’s public profile a boost, helping to increase their already impressive market share across Europe, particularly in the United Kingdom where Desailly is still considered a hero by fans of Chelsea Football Club.
