Copag playing cards return to the WSOP

6 May 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Copag has announced a multi-year agreement to return as the official playing card of the most prestigious, longest-running and richest gaming event in the world, the World Series of Poker (WSOP).

Copag, the world market leader in the manufacturing of playing cards for over 100 years, and the WSOP, the most trusted brand in poker have partnered to create a unique playing card experience.

Copag's best quality playing cards will be spread during the preeminent poker festival, with two unique set ups to be featured for the first time in WSOP history.

Tournaments begin at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 31 and run 24 hours a day for seven consecutive weeks.

Poker's largest live event will feature a unique set of playing cards. The WSOP Main Event takes place July 9-July 18, 2016.

Last years' WSOP attracted over 100,000 participants from 111 different countries and the tournament awarded over $210 million in prize money.

"Putting quality playing cards on the tables at the WSOP is one of the most important elements of the entire event," said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. "We're extremely pleased that Copag, given their track record to successfully supply some of the top poker tournaments in the world, will be the World Series of Poker partner in 2016 and beyond."
