888poker has been confirmed as the lead poker room sponsor of the World Series of Poker 2015 (WSOP 2015). The WSOP 2015 which will run from 27 May to 14 July at the Rio All-Suite Hotel Casino is the world’s largest poker tournament.
The 888poker brand will be displayed throughout the tournament venue during the poker series, and will receive broadcast coverage from the ESPN network. 888poker will further sponsor the European WSOP series in London.
The WSOP 2015 sponsorship will allow 888poker to run official satellite poker qualifiers and WSOP 2015 promotions outside of selected territories (the US, British Columbia and Quebec, Canada, Mexico, Italy, India and France).
Itai Pazner, Senior Vice President and Head of B2C at 888 Holdings, commented on the sponsorship:
“As a true partner with the WSOP on the B2B side where we power their real-money gaming in the United States, this was a logical next step for us to carry the power of the WSOP to our players across all other major markets we serve. This broad package gives 888poker players a great opportunity to win their way to WSOP events on our online poker site, plus gives us terrific content and assets to market our brand.”
