PokerStars.net extends Maple Leafs sponsorship

New agreement will run until the end of the 2011/12 season and see free-to-play online poker site’s name and logo feature on rinkboards inside the Air Canada Centre.

Monday 30th May 2011



PokerStars.net has renewed its sponsorship agreement with one of the most storied franchises in the whole of the National Hockey League (NHL), the Toronto Maple Leafs. Signed with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Limited and set to run until the end of the 82-game 2011/12 NHL regular season, the new deal will see PokerStars.net’s name and logo featured on rinkboards inside the Air Canada Centre for all of the team’s home games. In addition, PokerStars.net stated that the sponsorship agreement will see it given the opportunity to create ‘exciting ticket giveaways’ for the popular goal judge seats inside the 18,900-seat venue. “Millions of Canadians, including myself, are diehard sports fans and poker players,” said Daniel Negreanu, a member of the Team PokerStars Pro squad of sponsored professional players. “Hockey is our national pastime and recently poker has surged in popularity as Canadians have begun to excel on the international stage. I have played hockey my whole life and grew up watching the Toronto Maple Leafs, which is why I am excited that PokerStars.net is a sponsor. It is a great relationship and allows the world's largest online poker school to team up with an iconic franchise to deliver exceptional promotions for poker and hockey fans.”
