PKR.com to introduce live events and new BAMMA sponsorship
Award-winning 3D poker site PKR.com is set to host a series of friendly live events, in a bid to give its four million-plus members a chance to meet the faces behind the avatars.
The social events will take place all over Europe, and the UK is the first on the list, with Manchester hosting the first event on 26 February.
Not content with the new live events to kick off the new year with, PKR.com are also branching out to the martial arts market after having signed a sponsorship deal with the British Association of Mixed Martial Arts (BAMMA).
PKR spokesperson Erika Schwartz Poole said: "It is with great pleasure that we announce our official partnership with BAMMA. Mixed Martial Arts is becoming hugely popular and we are very much looking forward to working with them throughout the coming year."
You can expect to see the PKR brand displayed on all BAMMA events, and BAMMA logos on the poker site. PKR.com are incorporating their new relationship with martial arts into the live events, by inviting 150 players for a drinks reception, which will be followed by an evening of martial arts at the BAMMA 5 event.
After starting off in Manchester, the event will move to London’s Fox Poker Club on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 March. PKR stated that Friday will bring back ‘Sit and Go Madness’, where players will get an opportunity to try out unusual poker games in a party atmosphere.
