The former South African cricketer AB de Villiers has entered into a long-term partnership with Fairolay, the sports and gaming exchange, to serve as its brand ambassador.
Online gaming is swiftly becoming an integral part of the way people enjoy sport, gaining popularity worldwide. Fans can now feel like genuine stakeholders in what happens on the field, rather than be mere spectators sitting in the stands.
“Fair play has always been at the heart of everything I have done, so it feels like a natural fit. We want people to have fun, to be careful and responsible in everything they do and, of course, to play to win,” de Villiers said.
De Villiers excelled in all formats of the game, thriving in the South African national team from 2004 until 2018. He also became one of the brightest stars of the Indian Premier League, playing many memorable innings for Royal Challengers Bangalore, often in partnership with his teammate and friend, Virat Kohli. He is widely known and admired as ‘Mr 360’.
A FairPlay spokesperson said, “We are excited to work alongside ABD and to celebrate the spirit of sport which he represents. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”
