The William Hill Company confirmed that they’ve begun discussing a potential partnership with CBC Sports going forward. This follows after the two corporations had previously tried to engage with each other, with the agreement ultimately failing. Negotiations towards potential contracts ended last month and were seemingly the end of the discussions. Reps close with the previous deal continued to push for the two companies to engage with new talks. Two weeks after and confirmation that advanced negotiations are being held was made. Subsequently, the William Hill company will maintain a more significant presence in the North American sportsbetting market. Those close with this sportsbook anticipate an official partnership announcement to be released by next week.
ViacomCBC, the parent company that operates the CBC Sports brand, prioritizes discretion when it applies to potential partnerships. This means that discovering exclusive details or financial data on this agreement is nearly impossible. There are business analysts that believe Joe Asher, the chief executive officer of William Hill – America Subsidiary, will regret letting the media know about the rejuvenated conversations. CBC Sports has previously backed out of contracts that were leaked to the press.
