The multinational bookmaking holding Parimatch has become an official betting partner of the second season of international esports series EPIC League in Dota 2. The brand will be integrated into the Russian broadcasts of games held by RuHub studio.
Matches of Epic Esports Events’ EPIC League will be held in two divisions in the Europe/CIS region from October 29 to December 13. The prize pool of the first division is $500 000, and $50 000 is planned for the second one. First division participants are Virtus.pro, NAVI, Alliance, Team Liquid, Nigma, Vikin.gg, OG и Secret.
Stepan Shulga, head of Parimatch esports division: “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. Even Team Secret managed to start their performance at the tournament with a loss, although it was impossible to believe in. We are glad to cooperate with RuHub again at such an amazing tournament and are already preparing some pleasant surprises for the audience.”
Sergey Barkhudarian, commercial director of ESforce Holding: “Over the years of our cooperation, Parimatch has shown itself to be one of the most reliable partners. We are glad to work with a company that is seriously interested in the development of esports — and this is proved by the rich history of our joint activities. We are confident that the second season of the EPIC League will open a new and exciting page in this story.”
