Fantasy sports platform Monkey Knife Fight (MKF), has announced an official partnership with Major League Baseball‘s Miami Marlins. As the team’s official fantasy sports site, MKF will be prominently displayed on the Marlins’ in-stadium branding, online assets, radio, and television.
Additionally, MKF has teamed up with the Miami Marlins to donate $50,000 to the Miami Marlins Foundation’s Home Plate Meals Relief Fund, which addresses food insecurities across South Florida due to the pandemic. Separate from that donation, an MKF-branded cover will adorn two right field sections in Marlins Park during the 2020 season. Each time a Marlins home run ball hits the covering, MKF will donate an additional $10,000 to the Miami Marlins Foundation.
“We’re excited to partner with the Marlins and introduce our unique style of fantasy sports to their fans,” commented Bill Asher, Founder and CEO of MKF. “What’s most important though, is helping those in need. So many in South Florida have been hit hard by this virus. We will do our part by giving back to their foundation and supporting the neighboring community, which has been one of the hardest hit areas during the pandemic.”
“The Marlins are the up and coming team in South Florida, which makes partnering with Monkey Knife Fight, one of the industry’s most innovative companies, a natural fit,” said Marlins Head of Partnership Strategy and Development David Oxfeld. “We appreciate the community-focused approach by MFK to engage with our fans and those in need in South Florida.”
This agreement, coupled with MFK’s recent partnership with Miami’s NFL franchise, signifies Monkey Knife Fight’s commitment to South Florida and the dedicated sports fans who call it home. The Marlins began the shortened 2020 season on July 24 with a three-game road series against the Philadelphia Phillies.
