For the first time in the last five years, since 2016, the Lithuanian Football League A has a general sponsor. The betting company Optibet became it, so the next season of the championship will be called “Optibet A League”. This operator actively and fruitfully cooperates with sports organizations of all Baltic countries. Optibet works with national teams, with various leagues and sports teams. Starting from this year, LFF – Lithuanian Football Federation will actively participate and make its direct contribution to the organization and holding of the championship, so the season promises to be interesting. But in 2017, the Seimas of Lithuania forbade the dissemination of information that companies associated with the gambling business sponsor any public events.
