Official Press Release from Glory Kickboxing
LOS ANGELES – GLORY unveiled today three new partnership agreements for GLORY: COLLISION 2. Ubisoft, Jack’s Casino and PowerDot join Monster Energy, Fairtex and House of Nutrition as official partners of the biggest event in GLORY’s history.
The leading interactive entertainment developer and publisher Ubisoft, creators of the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege online tactical shooter video game, enters the GLORY ring for the first time ever. As one of the most popular and tactical multiplayer games in the world today, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege currently has over 50 million registered players worldwide on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
Teamwork, tactics, and tension represent the three core pillars of this first-person shooter game. A forthcoming video series featuring a GLORY athlete and esports gaming team Trust Gaming, the reigning Benelux League champions, will highlight the parallels in focus, dedication and training required for success in both sports.
“We are extremely excited to partner with GLORY. With this strategic partnership we are highlighting the similarities between gaming and a physical sport like kickboxing to reinforce the fact that esports is more than just playing a video game,” said Milan van Valkenhoef, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Esports & Brand Manager at Ubisoft Benelux.
PowerDot, an electrical muscle stimulator which packs the power of Neuromuscular Electric Stimulation (NMES) into a small lightweight pod controlled by an app, will be joining forces with GLORY for COLLISION 2.
The PowerDot Smart Muscle Stimulator is designed to aid recovery from workouts and rehabilitation from injury.
PowerDot will provide the benefits of “the world’s smartest muscle recovery and performance tool” to all fighters on the card, ensuring they have the support they need to train and perform at their highest level for one of the biggest events in fight sport history.
“We believe through our industry leading, non-invasive technology solutions we can help people unlock their true potential. We are extremely excited to partner with GLORY to provide not only the athletes fighting on this card, but all athletes with this technology from the comfort of their homes” said Eric Glader, PowerDot CEO.
Jack’s Casino, a premium casino company with 29 locations in the Netherlands, was also today unveiled as a new partner of GLORY: COLLISION 2.
In addition to unique venue and in-ring branding during the live event broadcast, Jack’s Casino and GLORY will develop exciting promotional activities for GLORY fans before and after the event. Jack’s Casino will also be included across GLORY’s social media channels alongside website integration of GLORYkickboxing.com
“We are very pleased with the partnership with GLORY and see it as an excellent opportunity to further promote Jack’s Casino to a broad audience” said Eric Olders, CEO of Jack’s Casino parent company JVH Gaming & Entertainment.
GLORY: COLLISION 2 takes place Saturday, December 21 at the GelreDome football stadium in Arnhem, Netherlands. The headline bout, a long-awaited rematch between Rico Verhoeven and Badr Hari, is the biggest fight in the history of the sport.
“We are proud and excited to welcome and work alongside our new partners Ubisoft, Jack’s Casino and PowerDot” said Marshall Zelaznik, GLORY CEO.
“The signing of these key partnerships is another clear signal that GLORY continues to be a leader in combat sports and a product with global appeal. We look forward to rolling out these partnerships and engaging an even wider audience around what is sure to be the biggest fight in the sport’s history – GLORY: COLLISION 2.”
