Judd Trump

Current Masters champion Judd Trump has linked-up with crypto sports betting and casino brand Vave as a global brand ambassador.

Across the duration of the partnership, which hasn’t been received well by fans on social media, the Triple Crown winner will appear in international marketing campaigns and participate in social media giveaways to engage with fans.

A Vave representative said: “We are so excited to have a world class talent like Judd Trump on board with us. We are all huge fans of snooker and were super excited for his recent master’s victory!

“We believe that Judd will be an undisputed legend in the snooker world and partnering with him helps us share the same recognition in our own right.

Trump is one of only 11 players to have completed snooker’s Triple Crown, which comprises the World Championship, Masters and UK Championship.

The Bristol born potter triumphed in snooker’s World Championship in 2019, the UK Championship in 2011 and the Masters twice, most recently in January of this year when he came from 10-7 down to defeat Mark Williams 10-8 at London’s Alexandra Palace. In total, he has captured 23 ranking titles

Trump has compiled almost 900 century breaks in professional competition, making him the third player, after Ronnie O’Sullivan and John Higgins, to reach this milestone.  

Commenting on the partnership, Trump added: “I’m very excited to represent Vave, it’s one of the fastest growing crypto brands right now. They have an amazing product and super professional team behind it, which is important for me as a professional athlete.”
