Grosvenor Casinos Champions Sporting Excellence With A Knockout Sponsorship Deal

April 1 2015

Grosvenor Casinos has partnered with Matchroom Boxing as title sponsor of the forthcoming ‘Geordie Roar’ fight night taking place on Saturday night at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, live on Sky Sports.  The partnership will further reinforce Grosvenor Casinos’ association with sports and help to position its casinos as the perfect place to enjoy watching live sports around the clock.

The ‘Geordie Roar’ fight night is headlined by the return of Anthony Joshua MBE who faces American Prizefighter finalist Jason Gavern, South Shields’ Anthony Nelson meets Dundee’s Jamie Wilson for the vacant Commonwealth Super Flyweight title and there will be fireworks in the WBC International Silver Cruiserweight title clash between champion Stephen Simmons and local favourite Jon-Lewis Dickinson. The ‘Geordie Roar’ fight night will be broadcast live in Grosvenor Casinos nationwide.

Adam Evans, general manager at Grosvenor Casino Newcastle commented: “As a brand we’re continually championing sporting excellence in our casinos with local sponsorship deals taking place across the country. However, we’re especially proud to be embarking on this sponsorship deal with Matchroom Boxing and hope to develop the relationship further in the future.  Anyone not lucky enough to have tickets to the fight night can still enjoy the thrill of the match by watching it live at one of our casinos located throughout the UK.”

Eddie Hearn, managing director of Matchroom Sport, said: “It’s great to be working again with Grosvenor Casinos. Their passion for live sport and entertainment matches ours and I’m excited about some of the big nights ahead. As a casino brand which is all about risk and reward I think boxing is a perfect match! We really do value their support and sponsorship and hope that this relationship can continue to grow.”
