After the successful snooker event Gibraltar Open last year, Dafabet is delighted to announce that Jimmy White will continue his stint as brand ambassador this 2016. Regarded as the snooker Legend, Jimmy agrees to give his thoughts and exclusive insights in the upcoming major tournaments. In addition, Dafabet in partnership with White promises exciting sports events and money-can’t-buy prizes to be given away.
Jimmy White started in snooker at the age of 16 back when he won the English amateur title. With over three decades of professional career, White has brought joy to millions with his attacking moves and astonishing shots especially the “screw and side spin”. With his overall attributes as snooker player, he became popular with his codename “The Whirlwind”. To mention some of his achievements include 1992 UK Championship, 1987 British Open, Daily Record Championship 2004 and 7 other major tournaments.
Dafabet signed previous deals with Football icons Luis Figo and Alan Shearer and for the first time in snooker, the e-gaming company once again choses Jimmy White to continue being the ambassador for 2016. Often known as the “The Peoples Champion”, the extension of contract with White will sure increase Dafabet’s brand presence in the international tournaments.
Following up with the announcement, John Cruces, Head of Sports Marketing and Sponsorships at Dafabet, said “To team up with a true legend of snooker is a proud moment for us all at Dafabet. Every snooker fan rightfully knows the Whirlwind Jimmy White, the way he plays the game is what makes sports fans stand up. He breathes snooker, he knows the players, and his insight will be invaluable to the Dafabet players.”
