WPT Announces First Half of Season XIII Schedule

by | Published: Monday, June 2nd, 2014

The World Poker Tour announced the schedule for the first half of its upcoming Season XIII last week. Between June and December 2014, the WPT will be busy as it makes its way to four continents.

The WPT and Fox Sports Network will also continue their broadcasting agreement signed last year, which assures full distribution of the WPT’s televised events through 2017.

“Season XII was a monumental year for the World Poker Tour and our partners around the globe,” said WPT President Adam Pliska. “From the WPT World Championship held for the first time at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, a 1,795 record-setting field at the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown, and a greater than 50% increase in our viewership on FOX Sports Networks to our new collaboration with DeepStacks Poker Tour and three multi-year partnership deals with DraftKings, Monster Headphones, and Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot, we couldn’t be happier with our expansion during Season XII or more excited about our plans for Season XIII.”

World Poker Tour Executive Tour Director Matt Savage added, “Coming off a very successful Season XII highlighted by some record-setting numbers and fantastic new locations, the World Poker Tour marches into lucky Season XIII with more new global stops and many of the great tournaments that have made the WPT the most player-friendly tour in poker.”

After beginning the summer in Italy, the WPT will move to London in July for the partpoker WPT National UK: London. From there, the WPT will host the usual tournaments throughout North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean for the rest of the year.
