“Welcome to SetantaBet.com. Since Setanta’s first broadcast in 1990 we have sought to entertain the sports fan by broadcasting top class sporting action from all over the world. In that time we’ve learned a lot about the desires and needs of the modern day sports fan. We are privileged to work in the sports industry and have witnessed massive changes in it over the past 20 years. One of the most significant of these has been the massive growth in the leisure pursuit of sports betting. Most sports fans like to back their opinion and we here at Setanta are no different. So we are now launching our own Setanta betting site where we are bringing our fanaticism for sport to the sports betting market. We hope you enjoy the ‘setanta experience’ when having a bet and we welcome your feedback. Be lucky.”
- Michael O’Rourke, Joint CEO Setanta Sports Group
