ManBetX signs on as title sponsor for World Snooker ranking events
ManBetX has expanded its sports sponsorship portfolio by agreeing to support two World Snooker ranking events.
The gaming company will serve as title sponsor of the Welsh Open and Gibraltar Open.
Taking place from February 26 to March in Cardiff, the Welsh Open is one of the sport’s longest-running tournaments, having been ever present on the calendar since 1992.
The Gibraltar Open, first staged in 2015, will run from March 7-11.
World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn said: “Snooker continues to grow rapidly as a global sport and these tournaments will be watched by many millions of fans via the coverage on BBC Wales and Eurosport, bringing tremendous exposure to the ManBetX brand.”
ManBetX currently serves as the main shirt sponsor of English Premier League football club Crystal Palace in a deal that runs to the end of the 2016-17.
In addition, the firm is an international presenting partner of the Italian Serie A top-tier club football competition in Asia.
