Stephen Holland, Co-Founder and Director of Sportotal said: “Having previously represented elements of the BDO’s business , we are delighted that, for the first time, we will act across all their commercial interests. This will give us the opportunity to oversee the structure of the event schedule best equipped to deliver the optimum commercial programme over a number of years.”

We have been impressed with the results Sportotal have achieved for us in the past and their approach for the future. We are looking forward to working with them to grow our fan base, commercial programme and number of partners of stature, to drive the BDO forward.”
