Fun88 Names Tony Parker Brand Ambassador for Asia

As a brand ambassador, the NBA superstar and Hall of Famer will participate in promotions and activations

The fast-growing Asian sports betting operator and powerhouse, Fun88, expanded its roster of brand ambassadors by joining forces with Tony Parker, the famous Hall of Famer and recognizable NBA superstar. The latest partnership, announced Friday, sees the basketball pro become an official brand ambassador for Fun88 in Asia.

Under the terms of the fresh collaboration, Parker will appear in different activations, as well as promotions. Moreover, he plays an important role by enabling Fun88 to connect with more basketball fans across the Asian region, including in markets such as the Philippines, Thailand and China, among other countries.

Parker became the third Hall of Fame brand ambassador for Fun88 after the company clinched similar collaborations with stars such as Steve Nash and the late Kobe Bryant. Undoubtedly, the latest collaboration would help the fast-growing brand engage with more basketball fans across Asia, considering Parker’s strong presence on social media. Currently, the basketball superstar has a staggering 1 million fans on the Chinese platform Weibo, as well as 3 million Facebook followers and 2 million fans on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.
