Gibraltar, May 1 2012 – An exciting endorsement now unites the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and 888poker. The renowned World Welterweight Champion George St-Pierre will move into the spotlight of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) as a member of Team 888 Poker this year. The union is part of a marketing strategy by 888.com to boost their player base and raise funds for anti-bullying charities. The partnership that commenced in March 2012 and runs to March 2013 is a win-win blend of benefits for St-Pierre, 888.com and anti-bullying charities, alike.
St-Pierre, known best as “GSP” to MMA fans, is a seasoned fighter with a career record of 22
victories and the most consecutive welterweight title defenses of all time. The two-time MMA
World Champion will take a seat at the table for special online promotions including the 888
Superstack. Players registered with 888poker
will have the opportunity to observe the champion
in action. Senior Vice President of 888 B2C Itai Pazner affirms GSP is a welcome addition to
the team, and on behalf of 888.com welcomes St-Pierre to 888poker: “We are really happy about the endorsement as well as the occasion to have such a renowned pugilist in our midst. We welcome GSP and his vast fan base to the 888poker arena.”

The endorsement is a result of the 2012-2013 marketing strategy to increase the online gaming player base for 888.com. St-Pierre described his enthusiasm about the upcoming events “I feel so blessed to participate in an endeavour to raise funds for such an important cause while engaging in a whole new type of competition.” This profitable endorsement deal establishes a world-class fighter as the official global brand ambassador for 888.com and stands to promote awareness for a virtuous cause.
