Adrian Montgomery, CEO of Enthusiast Gaming commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with TikTok, a revolutionary company that is dominating mobile media, to provide them with an integrated approach to increase awareness and engagement by delivering unique and creative content to our loyal fan communities. 

“Our recognition by Comscore as the largest mobile entity in the United States in the Gaming Information category validates the extensive reach we have into the elusive Gen Z and Millennial gaming market. We are excited to work together to create value for the TikTok community.”

Enthusiast Gaming’s new partnership follows on from the recent announcement that the organisation is set to purchase news and strategy guide platform Icy Veins.

Esports Insider Says: As one of the leading social media platforms, it is brilliant to see TikTok get more involved in esports. This is also a great deal for Enthusiast Gaming as it provides the organisation with a reputable partner for the foreseeable future.
