The partnership sees Trump – one of only 11 players to have completed the Triple Crown – work with the group as it aims to expand its global marketing efforts.
Brokered by Nick Hunter of TWP, the agreement will see the snooker player appear in international marketing campaigns and participate in social media giveaways, in a bid to engage with fans and promote Vave’s commitment to trust and reliability.
A Vave Representative commented: “We are so excited to have a world-class talent like Judd Trump on board with us. We are all huge fans of snooker and were super excited for his recent Masters victory!
“We believe that Judd will be an undisputed legend in the snooker world and partnering with him helps us share the same recognition in our own right.”
Trump clinched the UK Championship and the World Championship in 2011 and 2019 respectively, as well as winning the Masters twice, most recently this year. He has secured 23 ranking titles overall, with just five players in the history of the sport winning more.
Moreover, the former world number one was named the World Snooker Tour’s Player of the Year for three consecutive years from 2019-2021. He is the only player to achieve the feat, and is just one of three players to have made over 850 century breaks in professional competition, alongside Ronnie O'Sullivan and John Higgins.
“I’m very excited to represent Vave, it’s one of the fastest-growing crypto brands right now,” said Trump. “They have an amazing product and super professional team behind it, which is important for me as a professional athlete.”
