The European Football Poker Tour representatives have announced that Pari Mutual Urbain (PMU) has been chosen as the lead sponsor for the 30 May event in France.
The tournament will feature a €1,000 buy-in main event and will be held at the famed Aviation Club de France. The European Football Poker Tour will also host a €500 “legends tournament’ charity event that may include some of the top footballers in the world. Fundacion Privada Samuel Eto’o is one of the main sponsors of the charity event along with five other noble charity organizations.
The tournament will coincide with the beginning of the International Stadiums Poker Tour at Wembley Stadium in London. However, organizers do not see a conflict of interest in this matter.
Players can qualify for the tournament through satellites on the Pari Mutual Urbain and Aviation Club de France dot.fr sites on the Party Poker network.
