888poker Teams Up with Professional Fighters League for Upcoming Championship
In a significant development for both poker and mixed martial arts (MMA), the Professional Fighters League (PFL) has struck a sponsorship deal with 888poker. PFL is renowned for its rapid growth and innovative approach to sports. This collaboration is set to enhance the upcoming PFL Europe Championship, which is scheduled to begin on December 8.
This Championship in Dublin will feature the 888poker logo prominently on the PFL SmartCage octagon, showcasing the partnership to a global audience. Additionally, in the lead-up to the event, 888poker will gain increased visibility through PFL’s extensive social media network.
It is worth noting that recently there have been frequent announcements of partnerships between large poker rooms and sports teams, leagues or brands. An example would be the PokerStars contract with the popular NBA basketball team Philadelphia 76ers.
A representative from the Professional Fighters League expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration: "We are thrilled to partner with 888poker for the PFL Europe Championship. We believe this partnership with a vibrant and dynamic brand like 888poker is an exciting step forward, especially considering the significant overlap between the poker community and the world of mixed martial arts."
This agreement marks a pivotal move in 888poker’s strategy to expand its global footprint and further solidify its presence in the sports arena. The synergy between the two leaders in their respective fields promises to bring a new level of excitement and engagement to fans of MMA and poker alike.
