Malaysia's Genting new shirt sponsor for EPL's Aston Villa

Malaysian-listed Genting Group has become the shirt sponsor for English Premier League club, Aston Villa. Its subsidiary, Genting UK, the largest operator of casinos in Britain, entered into an agreement to have the Genting mark and logo on both Villa's home and away shirts.

Genting UK executive deputy chairman Peter Brooks in a press statement said the sponsorship was “a natural fit” and marked an important milestone in Genting's development as the group continued to expand its presence both within Britain and internationally.
