888 Sponsoring 2015 WSoP Events

The World Series of Poker has officially announced the sponsor for the 2015 events to be held in Las Vegas and throughout Europe.

With the upcoming season for one of the most popular card games across the globe to be taking off and WSoP events scheduled throughout the rest of the year, the series needs a powerful partnership for satellite tournaments and promotions. This year, 888 Poker will be behind the wheel offering qualifiers and themed endorsements for the European and Las Vegas proceedings.

In the European market, 888 will be handling the television broadcasts of WSoP games as well as gaining exposure through branded material as well as players from their site being able to enter tournaments to win the huge jackpots that the 2015 season is sure to bring, having awarded over $1.6 billion to date. They will also be the featured sponsor for updates put out on the WSoP website such as on the players' running chip counts.

World Series of Poker Executive Director Ty Stewart says of the deal, "we're proud of the comprehensive offering 888poker will have for any player outside the US who dreams to play in our flagship events. We see 888poker's expanded sponsorship as an important step to qualify players affordably and bring additional prize money to the tournaments."
