Neymar named as new cultural ambassador of PokerStars
PokerStars has announced its latest exciting news that Neymar will be assuming the role of its new cultural ambassador as the world-famous PSG player reinforces its alliance with the poker website.
Neymar re-joined the online poker site back in December of last year in a new collaboration, as he now pledges to revolutionize poker through many experiences for the community.
The Brazilian icon will be working with the site on many new projects and plans that have been inspired by art, music and design, as well as other forms of culture. Neymar has now created playlists for music in collaboration with PokerStars, as the latter states that this will offer an exceptionally exciting soundtrack for any poker game.
In celebration of this new partnership, the two parties will also be holding an exclusive golden chip giveaway. Aside from the $1 million in cash prizes, there will also be a certain number of golden chips which are hidden by PokerStars and will be discovered over the upcoming weeks. Each of these chips unlocks a high value prize which includes signed clothes and merch, along with some other prizes.
Neymar commented on his new role and said:
“Poker is so much more than just the game. It is a community and a culture and that is what I love about it. I am excited to start this next chapter with PokerStars, and we are already collaborating on a number of key areas. Music is a real passion of mine, so that was first on the list, but there is much more to come. I am excited for you to see what else we have in store.”
PokerStars’ global director of brand and creative, Martin Nieri, also added:
“Neymar Jr is not just a globally recognised sports star, he is also a proven creative with a deep interest in the culture around him. This new role marks the start of something exciting for the PokerStars community, a merging of two worlds, where poker meets culture. In a first for the industry, together we’ll be creating moments to truly shake up poker and rewarding those who get involved in all that’s to come.”
