Fantasy esports platform E-GO App has secured a partnership with game data platform GRID.
As a result of the deal, GRID’s data will power E-GO’s League of Legends esports product, which includes the company’s first-ever League of Legends fantasy season.
Based in Sweden, E-GO APP is a fantasy platform that currently supports League of Legends and Counter-Strike 2. In January 2023, the company secured around £238,000 in investment.
E-GO’s first seasonal fantasy league is for the 2024 LEC Winter Split, which commenced last week, with the total prize pool being at least $500 (£394).
GRID has a notable association with League of Legends developer Riot Games. The data company secured a multi-year deal with Riot and has since become the official worldwide esports data partner for League of Legends esports and the VALORANT Champions Tour.
According to a release, GRID’s use of official data will help enable E-GO provide a more ‘seamless and diversified esports fantasy experience’.
Viktor Maisey, CEO of E-GO, commented on the partnership: “E-GO offers one of the most engaging fantasy solutions for League of Legends Esports. It’s always free to participate and has great prices in our fantasy leagues and we’ve always valued data from official sources, to offer the best possible user experience.
“So partnering with GRID, the exclusive data partner of Riot Games and provider of LoL Esports Data, was a natural next step for us to continue offering the cutting-edge fantasy experience to our users. Alongside our fantasy solution, our end users also enjoy watching the games live, deep diving in stats and keeping track of their esports of preference. We’re looking forward to getting on the GRID.”
