UB.net Puts the Brand on Ice to Slam Home a National Hockey League Sponsorship Deal
Miami, FL (Marketwire) Thursday, December 31, 2009 – UB.net announced today that it has inked a deal with the National Hockey League’s Calgary Flames that will deliver a slamming presence for the leading online poker site’s logo and brand at the Pengrowth Saddledome throughout the month of January.
A highlight of the UB.net sponsorship agreement will see the free online poker site’s logo debut on dual Rinkboards at the Flames home arena when the Alberta team bursts onto the ice to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs on January 2nd, 2010.
To celebrate the Calgary collaboration at not just one, but eight home games during the month of January, UB.net is giving U.S. and Canadian players a shot at earning one of four pairs of prestige tickets to attend the NHL match up between the Flames and the Ottawa Senators at Pengrowth Saddledome on March 11th.
To be in the running to score a pair of seats at the Flames March 11 home game, players can participate in one of eight daily UB.net online poker satellite tournaments, where the top 100 players from each qualifier win a seat into a Sunday Main Event scheduled for 15:00 ET.
Starting from this Sunday, January 3rd, the Texas Hold ‘em satellites take place every Sunday through Saturday throughout the month, at intervals of every three hours from 6am until midnight. Each UB.net Calgary Flames Main Event awards the winner with the top prize of two tickets to the Flames Vs Senators game, plus $1,000 cash for travel expenses.
An additional pair of tickets to the luxury hospitality suite at the Flames V. Senators ‘face-off’ will be given away on location at one of the eight home games. The random lucky in-arena winner will go head to head on the Jumbotron with a pre-recorded Phil Hellmuth in a hockey-trivia game of “Truth” or “Bluff”. If the challenger can beat the Poker Brat at correctly guessing which facts are true or false, then the tickets are theirs for the taking.
UB has netted the month-long sponsorship of the Calgary Flames in the 2009-10 Season, a year in which the Flames celebrate their 30th anniversary. The deal seals a partnership between the two camps that genuinely share a passion for champion competitors and a respect for the sporting ideal.
NHL fans can watch all the excitement and on-the-fly action of the Calgary Flames/UB.net pairing on either CBC, Rogers Sportsnet or TSN. Check local TV guides for details.
