Paul Scholes Joins Paddy Power
With the football (soccer) seasons over and all eyes turned to the world cup, there are signings already happening in the iGaming world.
Following in the footsteps of Luis Suarez becoming a brand ambassador for 888, Paddy Power have signed ex-Manchester United star Paul Scholes to their blogging team.
Of course, Paddy Power are no strangers to controversy. Scholes’ first post made it clear that his role is to drum up publicity for his new employers. His dig at the failure of Man U vice chairman Ed Woodward to bring in top talent last year could well have been just an opening salvo.

Becker Leaves PokerStars
After 7 years as a member of team PokerStars, German tennis legend Boris Becker has left. A new Tennis legend, who is probably a lot better known by todays up and coming poker players remains – with Rafa Nadal heading up the sports stars list.
Other sporting names still associated with Stars include Fatima Moreara De Melo (Dutch field hockey) and Marcus Hellner (Swedish cross country skiing). It is not known at this point whether the higher profile signing of Suarez over at 888 will prompt PokerStars to go one better with a bigger name signing of their own!
Other Sporting Celebrity Gambling Ambassadors
With all the excitement about football stars signing with gaming sites, let’s not forget the world of cricket. Shane Warne (ex Aussie spin-bowling legend) has been an ambassador of 888 Poker for several years now. There have also been promotions to play in a private tournament with him in the UK.
