The Brazilian Snooker League, a championship organized by BMS whose main objective is to reveal the new talents of Brazilian snooker, announced that Betway will be its new main sponsor. In addition, the online betting operator acquired the naming rights to the tournament, which was renamed LBS Betway.
“It is a great joy to announce that we will have in our naming rights, since its first edition, the name of a sponsor who bet on our project and understood our main objective: to take pool to all corners of the country”, explained Samuel Gonçalves, Director BMS commercial.
“It will be the first time that we will celebrate a championship that aims to showcase new talent and high-level competitors who, unfortunately, haven’t had a chance yet. It will be a spectacle, with young players and the best-known names in our sector”, he added.
The first championship took place last week. It has 16 players: eight wildcards and eight qualifiers that took place last month. The championship had a prize pool of BRL 60,000 and the winner is guaranteed a spot in the next edition of LBS Betway.
“We are very happy and proud to take a step further in promoting Brazilian snooker. It is a scenario that has been growing a lot and, after the success of some tournaments that have already had the support of our brand, such as the Snooker World Cup , LBS is another step for Betway to build even more ties and support Brazilian Snooker”, added Arthur Silva, Head of Betway Brazil.
