Snooker legend Judd Trump has linked with crypto betting brand, Vave, becoming the firm’s new global brand ambassador.

The snooker legend – who is one of only 11 players in the history of the sport to have completed the Triple Crown – will bolster the betting brand’s ambitions of expansion in global markets.

A representative for Vave commented: “We are so excited to have a world class talent like Judd Trump on board with us. We are all huge fans of snooker and were super excited for his recent Masters victory.

“We believe that Judd will be an undisputed legend in the snooker world and partnering with him helps us share the same recognition in our own right.”

Furthermore, the deal – brokered by Nick Hunter of TWP – will see the 33-year-old English player appear in international marketing campaigns and also participate in social media giveaways.

Trump won the World Championship in 2019, the UK Championship in 2011 and the Masters twice, most recently in January this year when he beat Mark Williams, gaining 23 ranking titles overall.

Trump stated: “I’m very excited to represent Vave, it’s one of the fastest growing crypto brands right now. They have an amazing product and super professional team behind it, which is important for me as a professional athlete.”

The former world number one was also the World Snooker Tour’s (WST) Player of the Year for three consecutive years from 2019-2021.
