Virtus.pro and Parimatch extend partnership
The esports club Virtus.pro and the international bookmaking holding Parimatch are extending their partnership for 2021. As a part of the cooperation, Parimatch will continue to support the first Dota 2 and CS:GO rosters of the club.
Stepan Shulga, Head of Esports at Parimatch:
"Virtus.pro is a special club for us. We have been together since the days when the very concept of "esports" was not yet so strongly developed for the betting industry. We signed the first contract when there were completely different players in the club’s rosters. Having survived a complete reincarnation, Virtus.pro is again at the top of the world rankings. We appreciate such a long-term and interesting cooperation for us. GOGOVP!"
Sergey Glamazda, Virtus.pro CEO:
“This year marks three years of our cooperation with Parimatch and we are glad that we shared this path with such a reliable partner. We have already implemented many joint projects and there will be even more in the future. We appreciate that Parimatch supports the course of the club's development and are confident that together we can achieve our goals."
The bookmaking holding has been standing firmly on the esports ground for many years. In addition to partnerships with esports clubs, Parimatch contributes to the development of the scene by regularly supporting international tournaments: EPIC League Season 2, EPICENTER CS:GO 2019, OMEGA League and others. Also, the bookmaking holding successfully held several seasons of its very own Parimatch League Dota 2 tournament, which invariably enjoys great interest from viewers: the second season of the tournament gathered more than 6.9 million views on Twitch and won the MarSpo Awards 2020 in the Best Sponsored Integration/Activation in esports nomination".
During their cooperation with Parimatch, Virtus.pro Dota 2 and CS:GO rosters have won many international tournaments, such as The Kuala Lumpur Major and Flashpoint Season 2. The rosters have also secured themselves in the top of the world rankings of HLTV, ESL and DPC.
In honor of three years of cooperation, Parimatch and Virtus.pro released a video that tells a reliable story: fans, pro players and sponsors are united by one passion — esports. The video is available here: https://youtu.be/EhJQ8Ip_XBk
