Monkey Knife Fight (MKF), a San Jose, California-based company that debuted in late 2018, has partnered with the Milwaukee Brewers as they are now the official and exclusive daily fantasy sports site for the Brewers. Monkey Knife Fight has also donated $50,00 to support the Brewers Ballpark Employees Fund.
Fast-Growing Monkeyy Knife Fight Gets MLB Partner
The Milwaukee Brewers announced a partnership with Monkey Knife Fight, the fastest-growing DFS site in North America, earlier this week. Monkey Knife Fight will now be the Brewers’ official and exclusive daily fantasy sports site. As part of the deal, Monkey Knife Fight will have their logo displayed through the Brewers’ home stadium, Miller Park. They will also be featured online as well.
MKF Donates to Help Milwaukee Brewers Employees
In addition to the partnership, Monkey Knife Fight has donated $50,000 to the Brewers Miller Park employee relief fund. The fund already has $1 million contributed by numerous Brewer and another $300,000 from players, including Ryan Braun and Christian Yelich, as well as Brewers’ broadcaster Bob Uecker. The funds are used to support Miller Park employees who are out of work due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
Brewers President of Business Operations Rick Schlesinger: “We look forward to embarking on this new partnership and are thankful for Monkey Knife Fight’s generous donation to assist our Miller Park employees while they are unable to work during the pandemic.”
Founder and CEO of Monkey Knife Fight Bill Asher: “I am excited to partner with an organization so focused on their MLB families during this time. We are proud to do business with a company that makes it a priority to take care of their employees. MKF is honored to aid the Brewers in that effort. Further, we are excited to partner with an organization which represents some of the best baseball fans in the country.”
Another Big Partnership For MKF
This partnership with the Milwaukee Brewers is perhaps the biggest one yet for Monkey Knife Fight. Getting their foot in the door with a major sports team in such a competitive environment, like the DFS world that features giants such as FanDuel and DraftKings, is a big victory.
However, this wasn’t the first sports teams that Monkey Knife Fight has partnered with. The company also teamed up with the Los Angeles Wildcats of the XFL. Unfortunately, the XFL had to suspend operations due to the Coronavirus pandemic and ultimately filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month.
This partnership is just another big move that Monkey Knife Fight has made in recent weeks. They have also partnered with Enthusiast Gaming to utilize top influencers on their expansive media platform. Another partnership was with SoaR Gaming in order to increase their image and brand awareness in the eSports community.
