Online bookmaker GG.BET has been named the official betting partner of Dota 2’s The International 2022.
As a result, the bookmaker will be a partner for the competition’s regional qualifiers, last-chance qualifiers and group stage.
In addition, GG.BET will join forces with a range of influencers and ambassadors to create exclusive content about the tournament, which is taking place in Singapore.
GG.BET becomes the first partner of this year’s The International. Throughout 2022, the bookmaker has established partnerships with Team Vitality and tournament organiser PGL, which will operate the tournament starting on September 3rd.
This is the second time PGL and GG.BET have joined forces after it was named the exclusive betting partner of the Antwerp CS:GO Major.
On September 2nd, Valve launched the 2022 battle pass, enabling fans to contribute to The International prize pool. In total, 25% of each purchase will go toward the prize pool, which currently stands at $5.8m (~£5.01m) at the time of writing.
Dmitry Voshkarin, CEO of GG.BET, spoke on the deal: “Becoming the first betting partner of the first three stages of this year’s The International is an incredible opportunity for GG.BET.”
“We’ve come a long way with PGL and are delighted to take our collaboration to the next level. We will continue to organise unique shows, exciting contests, themed bonuses and prizes, and do everything else in our power to make sure every Dota 2 fan has an unforgettable time enjoying the tournament.”
