CPL sale to Redtooth

Champions Poker League, the UK's #1 Pub Poker League
Dear CPL Licensees and Players,

We are writing to let you know that Champions Poker League has been taken over by Redtooth Poker Ltd effective from 26th January 2018.

This decision has not been an easy one but we feel that it is in the best interest of the pubs and players. The existing owners David and Sarah will be staying on through the transition to ensure a smooth handover of the business.

The new owners recognise the goodwill that has been created through our relationships with our customers and they are keen to ensure that they protect that value.

We have sought out a buyer who really appreciates the business, understands how to operate it properly and is keen and capable of developing its future potential. Redtooth have 13 years’ experience in pub poker, being the preferred supplier to many leading Pub Co’s (including Greene King, Marstons, M&B etc.) and with a total annual prize pool of over £270,000 they offer the biggest prizes in UK pub poker. Full details of Redtooth Poker journey can be located in the enclosed brochure or online at www.redtoothbrochure.com

We sincerely thank all pubs and players for your support over the last 13 years while we have been running CPL. We will work hard to make the transition to Redtooth is as smooth as possible and truly hope that you poker evenings flourish.

We will be in phoning all pubs during January to finalise all of the paperwork but in the meantime please continue to run your poker evenings as normal.
