As well as exclusive tournaments for fans, the partnership is set to raise money for a number of local charities with a percentage of all revenues going to good causes.
Launching the new gaming sites this week, Portsmouth FC Commercial Director Lucius Peart was joined by was club mascot Nelson and Monique Bateman, Head of The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Children’s Fund.
“We know that in their spare time, many fans enjoy playing a little poker or casino games on the internet,” said Peart. “Therefore, we wanted to bring Pompey fans their own gaming sites and exclusive tournaments just for them. We chose Genting as our gaming partner, because they are as passionate about football as we are at Fratton Park and they embrace the same community spirit that we pride ourselves in. The partnership means we will be raising funds to go back in to the community with local charities. The first of those is the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Children’s Fund.”
Peter Nolan, MD of Genting Alderney added: “Pompey fans are arguably the most loyal and competitive fans in the league and we are confident that they will enjoy their own gaming environment as well. We can create poker leagues and exclusive tournaments just for Pompey fans, and the Club is supporting those with some sensational prizes.”
Through the clubs website, Pompey fans playing in the casino or poker rooms could win a host of great prizes from their first us$ 16.1 deposit. Monthly prizes include a us$ 161.4 shopping spree in the Portsmouth FC Club shop and a pair of VIP tickets for the QPR game on November 9th.
