Pressmeddelande   •   Sep 04, 2008 16:57 CEST

The Swedish poker star Stefan Mattsson, who recently had success with his second place in WPT Barcelona, has now signed a sponsor contract with the poker room Purple Lounge. The contract means that we will be seeing a lot more of Stefan in the coming big international tournaments.

The start of the alliance will be a revisit to Barcelona, where Stefan will play the EPT in September. Aside from the EPT and all the big international tournaments ahead, Stefan will also represent Purple Lounge in the next year's WSOP. Stefan is one of few players in the world with three cashes straight in the WSOP, which is a great achievement.

Matt Larter at Purple Lounge is very pleased with the recruitment. "We have now reached a deeper relationship with Stefan through a complete sponsor contract that really benefits us. I predict a great future for him, and I am convinced that he is the next Scandinavian superstar of poker. He is the perfect ambassador for our brand."

Stefan has during the last three years become a highly respected player on the international poker scene. He feels that he is taking the next step to becoming even more successful with this alliance. An important part of the contract is based on Stefan being a central character in Purple Lounge's marketing during the coming year.

Stefan is very pleased with his new role with the sponsor. "I couldn't ask for a better site to represent, and I think this agreement will further reinforce my place in the poker world."
