UPA League of Champions – Official Sponsors Announced

PHOENIX, AZ (August 4, 2009) - The United States Professional Poolplayers Association's (UPA) has brought about more support for its recently launched League of Champions, this time around in the form of a local favorite, the Arizona Diamondbacks, as well as established names in the billiard industry, Poison Cues and Instroke Cases.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have begun offering discounts and special benefits to all UPA members all the while inviting the UPA to produce events in conjunction with its home games for the fans.  There are many opportunities being explored daily to make this collaboration mutually beneficial for all involved, so keep an eye on the UPA website for additional details.
Also in the works, Instroke has been announced as the official case of the UPA.  With this, players will receive Instroke prizes for special performances within the League of Champions and the company will soon start producing the official UPA case which will ultimately feature a logo/brand to support the organization.  With the case, you need a cue and that is where Poison Cues comes in - they have signed on as official cue of the League of Champions.

"The Predator group has always been supportive of our association and it is a privilege to announce Poison Cues as the official cue of our League of Champions. The Poison brand has redefined the meaning of value in technologically advanced cues with their innovative designs and killer engineering." - Frank Alvarez III, UPA President

The League of Champions continues to grow nationally with more states to be announced soon.  For those of you interested in either sponsorship opportunities or in joining as a participate or league operator, contact the UPA for information on how to get involved.
