Going a step further in its provision of in-depth news and knowledge about all things gambling, SBC News has launched Esports Insider.
This will provide readers with daily news updates focusing on the business of esports, in addition to the expert insight from its editorial team as well as interviews with the major stakeholders all across the esports sphere.
Esports Insider’s primary focus will be on the business aspect of the rapidly expanding industry, and it will also be keeping its readers up to date with all goings on with a weekly betting preview, events coverage, and also an events calendar.
Interviews will be carried out with teams, players, organisers, developers, and startups as well as non-endemic companies all looking to make their way successfully.
SBC’s Sam Cooke will be leading the team, supported by Oliver Ring; a freelance journalist who writes extensively for Redbull, and Michael Moriarty; an expert in the CS: GO scene.
Commenting on the launch, Esports Insider Editor Sam Cooke said: “We’ve been looking to move more into the esports space for some time. With the excellent contacts we’ve established and worked with at SBC, I believe that we can quickly establish Esports Insider as one of the primary sources of esports business news worldwide.
“It’s much needed and will only continue to grow in relevance. Newzoo predicts that esports will be a billion-dollar industry by 2019. Those thinking that esports is a bubble that’s going to burst…it isn’t. It’s very much here to stay.”
The Betting on Sports Conference in London last week had four esports panels. Speakers included ESL UK’s James Dean, Sportradar’s James Watson, Betgenius’s Moritz Maurer, RTSmunity’s Pavol Krasnovsky, ESIC Commissioner Ian Smith, and more.
Rasmus Sojmark, Founder of SBC, also commented on the launch, saying that: “SBC has continued to expand its esports coverage and as the industry grows and professionalises, we have expanded SBC Media to include an arm dedicated to the business of esports.
“Any company that is interested in reaching an esports audience should get in touch.”
