North American fantasy sports gaming platform Monkey Knife Fight (MKF) has signed a multi-year deal with the NFL‘s Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The firm will be featured in pre- and post-game radio and TV promotions, in-stadium branding, and across the team’s social media platforms.

As part of the link-up, MKF will be the presenting sponsor of the team’s article series, “Five Bucs to Watch,” sponsor of the Bucs’ “Top Performer in Fantasy” highlight series, and title sponsor of an in-app predictive gaming concept. MKF will create additional contests tailored to Buccaneers fans.

“The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are an outstanding organization, and one that fits well with our brand,” said Bill Asher, Founder and CEO of Monkey Knife Fight. “Tampa Bay is going to have an explosive year with their new lineup. This upcoming season will definitely be exciting for all Buccaneers fans.”

Brian Ford, Chief Operating Officer of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, commented: “We’d like to welcome Monkey Knife Fight as our newest partners. We are always searching for ways to enhance and expand upon the game day experience both at Raymond James Stadium and through the ever-expanding popularity of fantasy sports gaming. 

“Monkey Knife Fight is an emerging leader in this new and exciting sports gaming space, and we look forward to beginning this partnership with a memorable 2020 season.”

This partnership adds to MKF’s continued support of Florida and its professional sports teams. Recently, it signed deals with the NFL’s Miami Dolphins and the MLB’s Miami Marlins. “Florida has shown itself to be the market where sports fans welcome MKF’s style of fun fantasy sports and where the focus is on loving your favorite team and players,” said the firm.
