Unibet Sponsors APL

Unibet Sponsors APL

Tuesday, 18 August 2015

Unibet, the poker company behind some of the best-loved tournaments in Europe, is now the sponsor of the Australian Poker League (APL).

Keen to extend its global influence and bring its unique brand of poker to the land down under, Unibet will now act as the headline sponsor for all APL and 888PL events.

In Europe, Unibet made a name for itself with the Unibet Open, a series that's often described as one of the best value festivals in the game. Using this experience as a base, Unibet now hopes to bring the same level of customer service and value to local players in Australia.

Kicking off the new partnership will be the Unibet Open Sydney, which will run between September 12 and 13. Taking place inside the St Mary's Band Club, the freeroll event will offer a $50,000 prize pool and all players have to do to earn a seat is become a Unibet member.

As well as the opening event in Sydney, Unibet is expected to sponsor a string of additional tournaments across Australia in the coming months; a move which should further help the operator's brand image within the country.
