PokerStars to sponsor main stage at Poker In The Park V

Friday, 26 August 2011

With Poker In The Park V just one week away, we’re very pleased to announce that has signed on to sponsor the main stage, which is set to feature poker and chess masterclasses alongside live music and stand-up comedy.

"We’re thrilled that PokerStars has come on board,” said festival organiser Michael Caselli.

“Having the most popular poker room in the world on board is not only great for Poker In The Park V but shows how committed PokerStars is to the entire sport of poker.”

Among the attractions at the main stage will be the Swinging Little Big Band to provide over 20,000 poker fans with Rat Pack-era jazz as well as a variety of musicians and 'card ninjas'.

On the Saturday, the main stage will play host to the British Poker Awards to honour the biggest names in the UK poker scene.

If you haven’t heard of PokerStars, you don’t play online poker. The world’s largest and most popular poker site has dealt over 65 billion hands and hosted close to half a billion tournaments including the tenth annual World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) next month.

Those interested in attending Poker In The Park V can find more information at or by following the event on Twitter.
