Canada-based eSports betting company Esports Entertainment Group Inc. has revealed that they will be partnering up with a number of teams from Southeast Asia.
The entertainment group provides a platform where fans can place bets on eSports titles such as PUBG, League of Legends, Overwatch and Call of Duty, and have now made the push into the southeastern part of Asia, taking their tally up to 190 partnered teams. Out of this 190 figure, 11 teams from Asia are a part of Esports Entertainment, including the newly acquired Vietnam and Bangladesh, as well as eight teams from Nepal.
CEO Grant Johnson offered the following statement with a recent press release: “I want to welcome all of our new esports team partners and especially those from Asia. The region has a huge esports fan base and we look forward to working closely with these teams as they engage with their fans at home and around the globe.”
As the eSports industry continues to grow at an impressive rate, the introduction of betting companies in competitive gaming will serve to continue said growth, and with the help of the likes of Esports Entertainment, it spreads from the West around the world to regions that hadn’t been reached before.
