April 6, 2012

georges st pieree joins 888 pokerGeorges St-Pierre, better known to most MMA fans as GSP, is a great fighter and has exemplified the intensity of MMA in all 22 of his career wins. GSP has won two MMA World Championships and has set the record for the number of times he has defended his welterweight title consecutively. Now, the Canadian fighting machine will become 888’s newest ambassador.

The French Canadian will be an integral part in 888’s 2012-2013 marketing plan and 888 officials could not be more excited. Vice President Itai Pazner said, “The partnership agreement with Georges St-Pierre will strengthen our brand awareness around the globe and introduce 888 to the growing sport of MMA and its fans. It is exciting to have this international sports celebrity on board with us.” The deal to keep GSP started in March and will last a total of 12 months. Being an ambassador for 888 means the GSP will become part of 888’s pro team and will even compete in this year’s World Series of Poker Main Event.

GSP himself stated his excitement when he said, “I am very excited to become a global brand ambassador for Team 888poker.  I have wanted to play poker for a while now as it is a great game of skill.  It is not just your cards versus my cards; it is you versus your opponent.  However, the most important aspect of my partnership with 888poker is that we are going to generate a great deal of money for my foundation that dedicates its efforts towards anti-bullying causes.”

Canadian players will benefit from GSP’s signing in a number of ways including a GSP $5,000 freeroll and a 100% deposit bonus that is usually only reserved for newly signed players. The 100% deposit can only see you earn a maximum of $10 bonus, but if you deposit $10, your bankroll will be boosted by a total of $20.
