Michael Owen will be Punt Casino’s new global ambassador, appearing in various commercial and online ad campaigns for the casino. The new partnership will highlight Punt Casino’s crypto offering, which the business compared to what it called traditional “outdated” methods.
Owen has over 25 years’ experience in professional football between playing and punditry. Playing for Liverpool as a striker, he made his Premier League debut in 1997. Since then, he earned a spot in Pelé’s Fifa 100 list of “greatest living footballers”, along with winning the Ballon d’Or in 2001.
In 1998 he was awarded 1998 UK Sportsman of the Year and Europe’s Footballer of the Year in 2001.
“I’ve been involved with crypto for some time now, so it’s great for me to stand side by side with Punt Casino” Owen said.
“Being involved with the best has always worked for me. Punt Casino is just that, and they really are changing the game with crypto.”
Alexander Bowring, head of marketing at Punt Casino, said: “Michael Owen is a football icon in every sense of the word, so to have him come on board as our brand ambassador is a major moment for us.
“Since launching last year, Punt Casino has been changing the game, delivering exciting crypto casino action that our rivals just can’t match. Expect big things from Punt Casino in 2022 and beyond.”
