A common history between AS Monaco and Africa

It’s leading payment technology infrastructure ensures 120+ payment integration points whilst the support of a 2,500+ strong retail footprint and 90,000 kiosks gives it incomparable presence and credibility.
AS Monaco has long been a champion of giving young African footballers the dream of playing in one of Europe’s elite leagues and developing them into future stars of the game. From the early days of giving Ballon d’or winner George Weah his break in Europe to their current star, Krépin Diatta, Monaco, like Premier Bet, are firmly invested in Africa. This partnership will bring the fans closer to AS Monaco with the opportunity to win exciting prizes, access to unique content and money can’t buy experiences and great products and services, only available at Premier Bet.
