In the latest in an increasing line of sponsorships being arranged for Season 11 of the European Poker Tour, Slyde have once again teamed up with the tour by becoming their Official Watch Sponsor.
This partnership represents the third season in a row that they have worked alongside each other and comes after the EPT announced sponsorships with ‘Skullcandy’ and ‘Suesswaren’ who became the official Audio and Chocolate partners for the tour.
This sponsorship will see players given more incentive to win the major events as they will receive watches from Slyde that are worth between €5,000 and €9,000. Players that take down a Main Event or High Roller on the tour will now take home a Slyde ‘Black and Steel’ watch worth more than €5,000 whilst the winner of the EPT Grand Final at Monte Carlo will win a ‘Black and Rose’ Slyde watch worth a staggering €9,000.
The European Poker Tour president Edgar Stuchly shared his delight at the partnership by saying in statement “The EPT is thrilled to once again be working with SLYDE for a third consecutive year and offering an amazing gift for our Main Event and High Roller winners. The watches are truly something special – a keepsake to complement the amazing achievement of winning an EPT title.”
Slyde also showed their delight at continuing this partnership when their Chief Operating Officer Raphael Bertschy said “We are looking forward to another exciting EPT season full of innovation, growth and new milestones. The SLYDE brand shares similar attributes and ambitions with the EPT and we look forward to another great season of events.”
There is not long to go now until the start of Season 11 with EPT Barcelona kicking off the tour on the 16th of August.
