Miami Marlins partner with Monkey Knife Fight
The Miami Marlins and Monkey Knife Fight announced a partnership making the upstart fantasy sports platform the operator of the team’s official fantasy sports site.
As part of the partnership, Monkey Knife Fight and the Minnesota Twins have installed a tarp located behind the right field foul pole, half in fair territory and half in foul territory. For every player that hits the tarp, MKF will donate $10,000 to the Minnesota Twins Community Fund’s Emergency Relief Fund. Regardless of which team hits the tarp or if the hit is fair or foul, MKF will make the donation.
The Monkey Knife Fight tarp, which will remain up throughout the season and during playoffs, will be ready for its first game tonight when the Twins take on the Royals.
“We are proud to work with an organization like the Twins that make the community a priority,” said Bill Asher, founder and CEO of Monkey Knife Fight. “Bigger than sports is the responsibility to help feed and shelter those in need who are greatly impacted by the pandemic in Minnesota.”
“This spring, the Twins Community Fund created an Emergency Relief Fund to support COVID-relief efforts around child and family hunger, shelter, and educational needs,” said Stephanie Johnson, Executive Director of the Minnesota Twins Community Fund. “Monkey Knife Fight’s support of these efforts will allow us to continue to assist our community in the ways that it needs the most.”
