American Fugitive and Human: Fall Flat publisher strikes new deal with EFL club
Curve Digital is used to promoting and selling millions of games to audiences around the world, and now, they're bringing joy to fans of the 'beautiful game' that is football (soccer for those across the pond).
The PC and console publisher of popular titles such as American Fugitive, Human: Fall Flat and For the King has struck up a sponsored partnership with Stevenage Football Club, who currently play in the EFL League Two, the fourth tier of the English football. The deal between Curve and Stevenage FC has helped fund the refurbishment of the club's East Terrace ahead of the 2019-2020 season, as well as opportunities for fans to win game codes in giveaways at home matchdays via the club’s social channels!
On the club's official website, Stevenage Football Club director Stuart Dinsey said "Curve has supported a facelift to the East Terrace that will complement the new North Stand and video screen. At the same time, it will interact directly with the gamers amongst our regular fans, plus 143,000 followers of the club across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.”
Simon Byron, publishing director of Curve Digital, also said “Curve Digital prides itself on identifying fresh talent, signing potential winners which will go on to become huge hits - so an ambitious League Two club like Stevenage FC is the perfect partner.”
It's shaping up to be a pretty great 12 to 18 months for Curve, what with their new sponsorship deal and developing games based on hit TV shows Narcos and Peaky Blinders. With a new sponsor behind them, let's hope Stevenage can 'Stealth Inc 2' the penalty box and score some important goals...
Yeah, that's a great Curve-football pun and you know it!
