Espo, the fan engagement platform that rewards collaboration between world-class esports teams, players, fans and sponsors, has expanded its roster of team partners with the addition of 3 international organizations: Built By Gamers, Team BDS and BOOM Esports.
All three teams will join F2K, GODSENT and Team Queso in running a series of monthly campaigns on the Espo platform where esports fans can unlock and redeem an ever-changing variety of exclusive Fan Perks offered by their favorite teams and players.
The addition of Built By Gamers, Team BDS and BOOM Esports is a further expansion of the Espo network for esports fans in North America, Europe and South East Asia. All 3 teams are champions in their respective region and performing at the highest level despite the challenges of competing remotely as a consequence of the global pandemic.
Speaking about the team partnerships, Espo founder and CEO, Henry James said: “I feel like Espo has found the turbo button when it comes to the interest we have been receiving from a number of the most competitive and popular esports teams. Take a closer look at these teams and you’ll see they deploy killer strategies in-game and in the board room.
“Our Team Partners support our vision to bring esports fans closer to the action and they are the pioneering teams working collaboratively with our Brand Partners to provide reward-based fan engagement.”
Built By Gamers founder and CEO, Todd Searle, said: “We are excited to partner with Espo as it provides a crucial solution to the esports world. For BBG, providing unique opportunities for fans to engage with their favorite players is a priority. Espo will bridge that gap while also allowing brands and other partners to participate. This is an important step in the evolution of our brand.”
Team BDS executive director, Renaud Pierre Baijot said: “We are beyond excited to start working with Espo. They will help us bring Team BDS to a whole new level by helping us engage with fans and secure key partnerships with international brands.”
BOOM Esports CEO, Gary Ongko Putera said: “We are excited to be joining Espo as one of their chosen Team Partners from the region. From day one, the vision and the mission is to become one of the biggest esports brands in the world. This is an exciting new step in achieving our goals with Espo and we will be able to bring BOOM closer to our global fanbase. Can’t wait to start the partnership!”
Since the announcements, Espo has seen a real buzz of excitement within their community which was only heightened as they revealed some of the Fan Perks that fans can expect to engage with in the coming weeks. VIP team merch, fan-v-fan tournaments, gaming house virtual tours, behind the scenes access to match days, competitions for content creators, giveaways from sponsors and personalized messages from players are just a number of perks fans can look forward to.
