Is there such an opportunity to become sponsored? I’m a great player I just don’t have the bankroll to start up, from what I’ve noticed you only seem to get sponsored once you’ve got a decent bankroll behind you

When you show your worth, opportunities arise.
here you can get a bankroll by playing freerolls and by winning one you already have a base from which to start. Greetings.

It is highly unlikely to get anyone to sponsor you unless you can show a very strong history with a high win rate over a long period of time.

The only 'sponsorship' I have is my day job, it begrudgingly indulges me in my poker habit!!!

You can only be sponsored if you have a list and an archive full of good and outstanding results.
It is not impossible, my friend, but you must be distinguished in mathematics, and learn and master all the psychological arts of poker. In addition to mastering all skills and strategies. Most importantly, it must be taken into account that poker is not a recreational game. ;);)
good luck

If you're a great player, then one year is essentially enough for you, and you can easily build a decent bankroll by playing freerolls. You don't need sponsors if you're a great player.

I think if you are a very good poker player then you just have to play freerolls and you can already build your own bankroll! It seems to me that very few people would agree to sponsor a little-known player! Play Cardschat freerolls and you will definitely build your bankroll! Good luck at the tables!

If you know someone with the cash they can stake you into a tournament for a certain percentage of your winnings but you have to give them a good reason to invest in you

Hello.
If you can show your statistics, for example for a year, and you have good results, then your offer may be of interest to many players. Prepare a good presentation and I think you will find what you are looking for.
Good luck.

I think poker is similar to other sports in this matter, usually only the athletes with the best results receive good sponsorships deals.

You could try building up a big enough roll to enter a televised tournament, then ask around your home town for any businesses that might want a little exposure in that demographic. Might help defray a little of the cost of entry but highly unlikely they'll be paying your way into the wsop main event.

I doubt that you will find a sponsor, no one sponsors the casino players either.:)

As others have contributed, it is unlikely to become sponsored if you haven't shown good results in the past. However, having a sponsor is NOT equivalent to being a professional and there are probably many "bad poker players" who have sponsors.

For example, perhaps a celebrity is playing in some event. They might be sponsored just because of their famous status which has nothing to do with how good (or bad) they are at poker.

I feel like some sponsors know this and use the act of "sponsoring" as an ego boost to the victim player. By the player bragging they are "sponsored" it makes them feel like they "made it" in poker, but this might just be the sponsor taking advantage of their vulnerable confidence level.

Naturally, this isn't for every case (and maybe not that many). I still feel like some sponsors use this as a tool to get better deals with the player than perhaps they deserve. The humble player should realize that sponsorship isn't as huge of a deal as some might believe it is, but this is just my opinion and observation.

The sponsorship by the rooms is done when you are a recognized player and have a lot of influence on social networks, if you do not have these things, it is useless to sponsor someone

Yes, but you have to run around in the right circles. I've never cared much for sponsorship, don't care for the idea of losing OPM. Closest I've come is selling 10% shares in a couple of $100,000 to $1,000,000 online games that I won entries. Overall, those who bought the shares won more than they lost thanks to a first-place win in one $100,000 game, but by selling shares I made money on all the games regardless of outcome.

If you're a great player, then it's probably not a problem for you to build a bankroll from scratch. It is quite surprising that you are a great player and are looking for a sponsor. I think if you are a really great player, sponsors will find you.

I have been asking my friends to sponsor me for the last ten years. Only one has done it a couple of times. Good luck!
