Francesco Totti Joins PartyPoker.it
PartyPoker.it has signed legendary Italian striker Francesco Totti as an ambassador for the site.
Born in Rome, Totti has succeeded on almost every level of soccer he played over the span of his career.
Totti, who is nicknamed “Er Pupone,” started playing for his hometown team Roma when he was just 16 and is now the number one goalscorer and most capped player in team history.
On the international stage Totti has been a fixture of the Italian national team since 2000 and was a member of the Italian squad that beat France to win the World Cup in 2006.
Totti won the Italian Footballer of the Year award five times and was named by Pelé as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers in 2004.
The Italian superstar now brings his considerable presence to the online tables on PartyPoker.it.
“I have faced many challenges in my career and I always apply myself with skill, intelligence, loyalty and passion,” said Totti.
“You need all these abilities for poker and it is also a game that excites me and is a lot of fun. Thanks to PartyPoker.it, I am able to combine my passion for sport and the challenge of poker.”
PartyPoker.it representatives were thrilled to have Totti onboard.
“We expect Totti to become the most capped player and number one goalscorer in our history,” said a PartyPoker.it spokesman.
“He is one of the greatest football players of his generation - the question is now will he be one of the greatest poker players of his generation too? What Totti strives for he normally succeeds in achieving! He is a huge signing.”
Totti wasn’t the only significant player signed by the PartyPoker brand this week.
On Wednesday PartyPoker announced it had signed notable poker player Dragan Galic to Team Party. Galic is a 35-year-old Croation/German from Schneverdingin, who has over $900,000 in tournament winnings and an EPT final table.
Galic joins Mike Sexton, Kara Scott, Tony G, Ian Frazer, Felipe “Mojave” Ramos, Bodo Sbrzesny and Remy Biechel on Team Party.
