With the capacity of accommodating 30,000 players, Bernard Tapie’s 2013 International Stadiums Poker Tour’s (ISPT), scheduled for 31 May to 6 June 2013, needs minimum 15 000 players to register in order to be held.
It was stated by head of marketing Georges Djen that it was envisaged that the tournament rolls out with all players competing online against each other at London’s Wembley Stadium, and that only the last 3000 standing will move on and play in a live poker tournament at the Stadium.
At the moment, there are three ticket options: a Euro 600 regular ticket, one seat with a rebuy/an add-on at Euro 1 200 or play direct at the live final at a cost of Euro 6 000.
According to an ISPT ambassador, poker pro Michael Mizrachi, if the field reaches 25,000 entrants, a winners pay day will amount toalmost Euro 5 million. He assessed that “It will be something spectacular.”
