ST. MARY'S, Antigua, July 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Esports Entertainment Group, Inc. (GMBL) (or the "Company"), a licensed online gambling company with a specific focus on esports wagering and 18+ gaming, is pleased to announce the signing of Affiliate Marketing Agreements with 40 additional esports teams as the Company ramps up affiliate marketing activities in support of its recent launch of VIE (https://vie.gg), the world’s first and most transparent esports betting exchange.
The addition of these 40 esports teams brings the total number of esports team affiliates to 100 since the Company’s first announcement on April 5th, representing a major milestone for Esports Entertainment Group, as well as, a major event within the esports world where no other esports wagering site has ever signed an Affiliate Marketing Agreement with an esports team. The Company anticipates many more Affiliate Marketing Agreements with esports teams throughout 2018.
NEWEST ESPORT TEAM AFFILIATES EXPAND GLOBAL REACH INTO SOUTH AMERICA, CENTRAL AMERICA AND NORTH AMERICA
The addition of the 40 esports teams below represents a significant geographical expansion of the Company’s partners. Whereas the first 60 esports teams were heavily concentrated in Europe, the most recent 40 esports teams represent our first teams in South America and Central America, as well as, adding further representation to our current three North American teams (USA) via three teams from Mexico.
Moreover, many of the 40 new additions are top esports teams within their respective countries with significant fan followings, which bodes very well for the future of these partnerships, as well as, potential interest from future esports teams. The geographical distribution of our most recent esports team affiliate partners are as follows:
VIE offers bet exchange style wagering on esports events in a licensed, regulated and secured platform to the global esports audience, excluding jurisdictions that prohibit online gambling. VIE features wagering on the following esports games:
- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO)
- League Of Legends
- Dota 2
- Call of Duty
- StarCraft II
Grant Johnson, CEO of Esports Entertainment Group, stated, “When we commenced this process, we did so with confidence and the knowledge we were about to achieve something great for the company and the esports industry. But even I didn’t expect to sign agreements with 100 esports teams this quickly, considering no other esports wagering site has ever signed affiliate marketing agreements with any esports teams. The industry has sent us a loud and clear message – our transparent and trusted P2P esports wagering platform is exactly what the esports world has been waiting for. We expect to sign many more such agreements with esports teams over the summer, with Gamescom 2018 expected to be our biggest week at the end of August. Thank-you to all of our esports team partners for helping us achieve this milestone and prove that VIE.gg is a winner.”
