Parimatch Sports Betting Company has been announced as the official Dota 2 EPIC League betting partner.
The event will take place between 29th October and 13th December, with one Division in Europe with a prize pool of $500,000 (£374,065) and one in the CIS field with $50,000 (£37,357). The brand Parimatch will be incorporated in the EPIC League’s Russian broadcasts seen by the RuHub Studio.
On the collaboration, Stepan Shulga, Chief Esports Manager of Parimatch, confirmed that: “The second season of the EPIC League promises to be the hottest event of the year. Perhaps the legendary Virtus.pro players under a different tag will be able to meet with the updated roster. A new era of NAVI is finally dawning. We are glad to cooperate with RuHub again at such an amazing tournament and are already preparing some pleasant surprises for the audience.”
“In the years of our cooperation, Parimatch has shown itself to be one of the most reliable partners. Sergey Barkhudarian, Commercial Manager of ESforce Holding, the parent company Epic Esport Events, that organises the EPIC League, added. We are delighted to partner with an enterprise that is seriously involved in developing sports — and the rich history of our joint activities shows that. We trust that a fresh and exciting new page in this story will open the second season of the EPIC League.
The agreement strengthens the already impressive list of Parimatch collaborations like Everton, Juventus and Shakhtar Donetsk, Fnatic and Virtus.pro and Ze eSports.
