888 extend EuroPro sponsorship
888poker have renewed their sponsorship of golf’s PGA EuroPro Tour for the 2013 season.
Following their successful sponsorship of the developmental tour in 2012, the online poker room have elected to continue as this year’s main title sponsor, with new promotions and events set to be added to the package.
Founded in 2001, the EuroPro Tour is a partnership between men’s professional golf body the PGA and sport events promotions firm Matchroom Sport, with the top five players in the Order of Merit at the end of each season advancing to the Challenge Tour.
888.com senior vice president Itai Pazner said: ”Last year’s tour was a great success for our poker brand and offered our online players access to the prestigious PGA Tour.
“We hope this year our new integrations will take the partnership to the next level.”
Matchroom Sport chairman Barry Hearn added: “The Tour is stronger than ever this year and I am really looking forward to what should be a great year as the Tour and 888poker continue to build on the strong relationship built in 2012.”
