he news will also be welcomed by the Costa del Sol side who are set to gain financially with the William Hill logo likely to be emblazoned on their strip for the upcoming campaign.
“Los Boquerones” had been without a shirt sponsor with just days remaining before the 2009/10 campaign kicks off this weekend but a major cash injection could come in useful with the summer transfer window set to shut imminently.
Due to the club’s location on the popular Costa del Sol, the side have always benefited from the large British expatriate community who have found it impossible to resist the allure of top class football.
Malaga enjoyed a remarkable season last time out, falling just short of a place in this year’s inaugural Europa League. Their manager at the time, Antonio Tapia has moved on to local rivals Real Betis who suffered relegation to the second division in the final game of last season.
Sources at the club believe that the large quantity of Britons on the south coast influenced William Hill’s decision to invest.
