PGA EuroPro Tour shows its hand with 888poker renewal

The PGA EuroPro Tour developmental golf series has renewed its title sponsorship deal with 888poker for the 2013 season.

The online poker brand of betting firm 888.com has opted to renew the deal after sponsoring last year’s Tour.

Itai Pazner, 888.com senior vice-president, said: “Last year’s tour was a great success for our poker brand and offered our online players access to the prestigious PGA Tour. We hope this year our new integrations will take the partnership to the next level.”

Founded in 2001, the EuroPro Tour is a partnership between the PGA and the Matchroom Sport agency and has established itself as Europe’s leading developmental golf tour.
