Betting provider Esports Entertainment Group has entered an exclusive online wagering partnership with European organisation Epsilon eSports.
The Belgium-based organisation will work with VIE.gg, the esports betting platform owned by Esports Entertainment Group.
Greg Champagne, CEO of Epsilon eSports discussed the partnership: “It is with great pride that today Epsilon partner with VIE.gg. This is a whole different ball game, the first betting exchange platform where players challenge other players. VIE.gg understands the community needs, and we are happy to have found the right partner that understand and support players. Extremely excited to begin this new venture and I can see nothing but big things to come from Epsilon/VIE.gg partnership during 2019.”
In October last year, Epsilon eSports partnered with English football club Manchester City for the Gfinity Elite Series; competing in the FIFA portion of the tournament series. The organisation is also partnered with Hype Energy, SCUF Gaming, Trust Gaming, ViewSonic, GT Omega Racing, Fragnet, AVerMedia, Gamer Grip, and GUNNAR.
Grant Johnson, CEO of Esports Entertainment Group also commented: “We are extremely honored to welcome Epsilon eSports to the VIE family. As one of the first true esports organizations, Epsilon has a long and successful history of esports championships that has earned them a world class reputation and fan base. As our first Tier-1 esports team partnership, today marks a significant milestone for VIE and we look forward to great success together.”
Esports Insider says: Congratulations to both parties on the partnership which we’re sure will generate some cracking content and be useful for both sides. We look forward to seeing what comes of the partnership, as the merge between betting & esports continues. It’s good to see Epsilon go with a regulated operator that’s doing things above board.
