He also added “As a true poker fan, I am excited to start a new chapter with PokerStars. Together we’ll be creating moments for our community and fans all over the world.”
A Significant Partnership
Also excited with this latest deal, Marin Nieri who is the Global Director of Brand and Creative at PokerStars added “Neymar Jr. is a true global superstar, but what underpins this partnership is his genuine love for poker. It’s about a shared passion for the game and the beautiful uncertainty at the heart of it.”
Nieri added “At PokerStars, we are constantly trying new things to bring new energy, excitement, and entertainment to our customers. Together with Neymar Jr, we believe we can take this to the next level for the PokerStars community.”
About Neymar Jr.
He is undoubtedly one of the biggest stars in world soccer and is the most expensive player that has ever been transferred between clubs. At the young age of just 28, he has currently played 103 times for Brazil, scoring 64 goals and is also a legend at three domestic clubs in three other countries.
For Santos in Brazil, he scored 105 goals over 186 appearances which earned him his move to the Catalan giants Barcelona. Here he went on to score 105 goals in 145 appearances and won the treble of La Liga title, Spanish Cup and the Champions League in 2014.
In 2017, he then moved to Paris Saint-Germain for a fee of €222 million which still stands as a world record. Neymar continues to be the undisputed star of football in France and has won the Ligue 1 titles in each of the three seasons since his arrival. So far he has scored 79 goals in 97 appearances.
Neymar is different from all the other celebrities that have come and gone. His passion for the game is totally genuine. By the end of most days at EPT Barcelona, Neymar could be found in a corner of a tournament room playing the last €1K on the schedule.
His love for the game also rubbed off on his superstar teammates like Gerald Pique, Arturo Vidal and Giovanni Lo Celso. The main man himself also made the final table of the BSOP High Roller in 2018 and finished sixth.
For now, PokerStars and Neymar are keeping their cards close to their chest as to what’s in store for the pair. Not even we know that to expect over the coming months but we do know something incredible is about to happen, so watch this space!
