By having Robin Van Persie, who is a great sports representative, will not only have existing members of BK8 engaged, but it will extend their brand to all kinds of sports audiences as a premium gaming platform.
The company plans to organize more sports events, like the BK8 Cup that had been a great success in the past, but now with the new brand ambassador Robin Van Persie. For example, Van Persie will visit Indonesia and Thailand, and there will be a series of other activities as the Euro Cup gets closer.
