Stamos Venios, CEO, PvPRO said: “Launching our first stop of our first ESG Tour is a super exciting development for us and we are delighted to have secured the involvement of top CS:GO teams such as SK, Virtus.pro and mousesports. To really kick the tour off in style and with a statement of professional intent, we also wanted to bring on board the number one specialists in esports data, betting streams and integrity. Securing Sportradar’s support and expertise was really important to the credibility and distribution of the tour and as we start this journey, we could not be happier to have Sportradar by our side”.
James Watson, head of esports, Sportradar added: “Tournament organisers in the esports ecosystem are getting savvier about the opportunities and threats that they now face as interest and investment grows. Dealing with Stamos and his team has been a pleasure, as they really get what is at stake and we are really proud that they chose to trust us, our experience and our relationships to help them take the ESG Tour and their growing competition portfolio to the next level.”
