FURIA gets royal flush with PokerStars partnership

PokerStars has announced that they will be sponsoring Brazilian esports organisation FURIA. The partnership was agreed across both brands by offering unique content for the poker and Esports communities.

As part of the partnership, a team of poker streamers has been created. The new poker team will be led by PokerStars ambassador and FURIA Chief Executive Officer, André Akkari. Before FURIA was founded back in 2017, Akkari was known as one of the best Brazilian professional poker players in the world. He founded the Esports organisation with Jaime “raizen” Pádua.

The branding of PokerStars will be seen on the left and right sleeves of FURIA’s official jersey. The Brazilian Esports organisation is most well known for its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster but it also has a team in the League of Legends Championship.

Rebecca McAdam-Willets, Associate Director of Public Relations at PokerStars, commented: “The team at Furia work very hard, lead by example, and are always looking to improve and evolve. This approach, as well as their general ethos, sits extremely well with what we aim for at PokerStars. It will be exciting for us to see what we can bring our community and how we can engage new audiences by working together with such a passionate team.”
