Online betting provider Parimatch was appointed the official betting partner of an OMEGA League international sportive series in Dota 2.
Parimatch’s branding will be incorporated into Russian and Portuguese-based live streams of the league as part of the deal. Russian coverage will be transmitted by RuHub Studio, while the Beyond the Summit Brazilian branch (BTS) will transmitted the tournament in Portuguese.
Stepan Shulga, head of the division Parimatch Esports, commented: “We are happy to become the partners of the largest Dota 2 series of 2020. As you know, this would be the time for the centerpiece event of Dota 2 community at other times, but we hope OMEGA League will help the fans take a break from such unusual circumstances around us by offering them a brilliant series featuring the world’s finest teams.
“The unusual for the Russian segment collaboration of the two largest studios – RuHub and WePlay – seems like a positive move, and as such, we are happy to be able to keep up the good tradition of the fruitful partnership between the two experienced organiser teams.”
The tournament began on 20 July, and will run across Europe / CIS, America, and Asian markets until 6 September. The closed European / CIS area qualifiers begin on August 1st and end on August 9th with a combined prize pool of $550,000.
Sergey Barkhudaryan, commercial director at ESforce Holding, added: “We are excited to see Parimatch become our partners again. We have quite a history of esports campaigns and events together.
“As part of the OMEGA League, we are continuing the mutual development and expansion of our markets. Parimatch is a brand with a huge baggage of experience when it comes to the esports world, and as such, millions of people around the world, including us, place our trust in Parimatch.”
