Swedish gaming studio Play’n GO has announced a new partnership with the MoneyGram Haas F1 Team, ahead of the Las Vegas Grand Prix in the 2023 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.
The multiyear partnership will initially see Play’n GO’s logo adorn the side of the VF-23 as well as team apparel in the 2023 season. The Play’n GO logo will be added to the race suits of MoneyGram Haas F1 Team drivers Kevin Magnussen and Nico Hulkenberg in time for the start of the 2024 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.
Play’n GO says that it is the first Swedish company to be a main sponsor of a Formula 1 team in many years and that it will start activating the partnership immediately “to help bring even more entertainment to another highly regulated environment.”
“Committed to promoting a regulated gaming industry that is built around fun and entertainment, the company’s games regularly attract more than one and a half million unique players and over a quarter of a billion rounds every day,” Play’n GO said in a statement.
“F1 is one of the premier global entertainment properties, where sport and technology are pushed ever forward in one of the most highly regulated and thrilling competitions in the world,” stated Johan Törnqvist, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Play’n GO.
