Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - August 31, 2021) - GameOn Entertainment Technologies (CSE: GET) (OTCQB: GMETF) (FSE: 9E7) ("GameOn" or the "Company") the leader in providing broadcasters, TV networks, OTT platforms, leagues, tournaments and sportsbooks with white-labeled fan engagement technologies around sports, TV and live events, is pleased to announce a partnership with Willow TV.

In partnership with Willow TV, the premier broadcaster of cricket in the United States and Canada, GameOn will power the Willow TV Cricket Predictor to Willow TV's 3.5 million homes across North America for the upcoming International Cricket Council Men's T20 World Cup taking place from October 17 to November 14.

The announcement further expands upon GameOn's gamification for cricket rights holders, following the Company's exclusive partnership with India's MX Player announced in June. Watched by an estimated 2.5 billion fans across the world, cricket is the second-most-popular sport behind soccer.

"Cricket is one of the most-followed and lucrative sports on the planet, and we're excited to expand our impact on the industry by partnering with one of the sport's top rights-holders, Willow TV, ahead of the much-anticipated T20 World Cup," said Matt Bailey, GameOn CEO. "With cricket partnerships in both India and North America, we're very intently driving partnerships with revenue, and establishing ourselves as a global leader. We continue on our mission to power the most-watched content in the world with the most innovative fan engagement technologies."

Through free-to-play prediction games, cricket fans watching the T20 World Cup on Willow TV can make predictions on moments that will happen throughout a match, earning points for correct answers as they put their knowledge to the test against friends, family and other cricket fans. Finishing high on the leaderboard earns status and recognition, as well as money-can't-buy experiences and prizes.

Willow TV is the official broadcaster of various cricket Boards, including the International Cricket Council (ICC), Cricket Australia, England & Wales Cricket Board, Cricket South Africa, Pakistan Cricket Board, and Indian Premier League (IPL). Its satellite, cable and IPTV affiliates in the United States include DISH, Sling, FIOS, Spectrum, Google Fiber, Xfinity, Optimum and Altice One.

"Our fans, content distributors and brand partners are all passionate about cricket," said Todd Myers, Willow TV SVP Global Operations. "By partnering with GameOn, we're able to magnify their engagement and drive value for all partners involved."

GameOn has a dynamic and experienced management team led by its CEO, Matt Bailey (Brooklyn Nets, Barclays Center), Chief Product Officer, Santi Jaramillo (Dapper Labs, NBA Top Shot, EA Sports) and VP of Partnerships, Ryan Nowack (Madison Square Garden, New York Knicks, New York Rangers), as well as its Directors, J Moses (Take-Two Interactive), Shafin Tejani (Victory Square Technologies), Liz Schimel (Apple News) and Carey Dillen (YYoga).
