“The timing couldn’t be better and we hope we win!”

The award is being sponsored by Betradar, and Alex Inglot, Director of Communications at Sportradar, commented: “SBC have been quick to recognise the importance that esports has to today’s betting landscape, creating this important industry award category. We are delighted to work with them to help recognise and reward those operators that have seized the opportunity quickly and strategically.”

The awards will take place at Abramovich’s own favourite haunt, Under the Bridge, in Chelsea on December 7th. Tickets and more information on the event can be found here.
