Loss of La Liga stars won’t alter approach, claims PokerStars

A PokerStars representative has confirmed the internet poker room remains dedicated to dealing with pro athletes.

This announcement is available in the wake of the organization parting company with Real Madrid and Barcelona stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar Junior.

PokerStars quick to respond to email misunderstanding

Tales about PokerStars ditching their sporting ambassadors spread after PokerStars sent an e-mail to affiliates. The missive read:

“Starting first April 2017, we are concentrating on our ongoing Free Welcome Bonus Offer. Additionally, our branding team has designed some wonderfully creative and banners to assist support your acquisition efforts and drive in certain big figures!

“Therefore, by night time 31st March, all Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar Junior marketing materials must be replaced because the Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar Junior banner creative won't be valid to work with from that date.”

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo

Company confident it’ll cope without Cristiano

As was stated by CalvinAyre, losing Ronaldo mightn’t be too harshly felt because the Portuguese star didn’t use his social networking to advertise PokerStars.

By means of contrast, Barcelona’s Neymar does promote poker via social networking. Still, with the organization having to pay both players a lot of money for his or her services, you can observe why a big change of mind may have happened.

However, the PokerStars representative who spoken to CalvinAyre’s Lee Davy was keen to indicate the firm isn’t abandoning using professional athletes.

As Davy writes, “If the best deal arrives, for the best cost, in the proper time, then it will likely be struck.”
