Fantasy esports platform E-GO App has announced a strategic partnership with game data platform GRID. Under the agreement, GRID’s data will power E-GO’s League of Legends esports product, marking the debut of the company’s first-ever League of Legends fantasy season. E-GO App, headquartered in Sweden, currently supports fantasy leagues for League of Legends and Counter-Strike 2. The platform secured approximately £238,000 in investment in January 2023.
The inaugural seasonal fantasy league offered by E-GO is for the 2024 LEC Winter Split, which kicked off last week, featuring a total prize pool of at least $500 (£394). GRID, known for its collaboration with League of Legends developer Riot Games, serves as the official worldwide esports data partner for League of Legends esports and the VALORANT Champions Tour, following a multi-year deal with Riot Games.
The partnership aims to leverage GRID’s utilization of official data to enhance E-GO’s ability to provide a more seamless and diversified esports fantasy experience. Viktor Maisey, CEO of E-GO, expressed excitement about the collaboration, emphasizing E-GO’s commitment to offering engaging fantasy solutions for League of Legends esports and the importance of partnering with GRID, an exclusive data partner of Riot Games.
GRID’s extensive portfolio includes data collaborations with Ubisoft for Rainbow Six Esports and Indian esports fantasy platform Spectatr by Fanclash, further establishing its presence as a leading game data platform in the esports industry.
