The Dutch will be hosting this year’s World Mahjong Championship
Online mahjong software provider Mahjong Logic strengthened its relationship with the mahjong sector internationally this week by signing a sponsorship deal with the European Mahjong Association.
The agreement is in respect of the World Mahjong Championship, which is being hosted this year by the Dutch Mahjong Association and will take place in Utrecht, Netherlands, between August 27-29.
Mahjong Logic will have one of its network’s partners’ brand visible on prints and promotions in the competition venue, Jonas Alm, CEO of Mahjong Logic revealed this week. The hosts of the World Mahjong Championship have chosen to use some of the contributions to support a national Dutch charity; the beneficiary is ‘Het Colombinehuis’, a holiday residence in Flevoland that provides help for families with children that require extra attention.
“It is a pleasure for us to contribute to the 2010 World Mahjong Championship,” said Alm. “We are proud to be associated with the dedicated and ambitious World Mahjong Championship and we want to support them by signing up as main sponsor to this important event”.
Alm said that Mahjong Logic will set up promotions within the network where one player can win one seat to the WMC along with a travel package for two persons.
