IGEA and EEG Join Forces
The Indian Gaming Esports Association is a group that aims to popularize esports among Native Americans and provide support to all tribal esports enthusiasts – customers and businesses alike. In order to do that, it has sought the partnership of the established Esports Entertainment Group. As a part of the partnership, the latter will provide the tribal association with technological solutions and services needed to improve the fame of esports among tribes and in tribal casinos.
Spectrum Gaming Capital will also be becoming a part of this deal and will use its skills to support the Indian Gaming Esports Association’s goals.
Esports Entertainment Group’s CEO, Grant Johnson, highly appreciates the opportunity to become a pioneer in this large yet untapped market. He is ready to give full support to his new partners.
“We look forward to providing iGEA the tools and technology necessary to execute on their vision of building and leading the esports ecosystem for tribal nations.”
IGEA’s Goal of Establishing a Tribal Esports Ecosystem
Ernest Stevens III, the chief executive officer of the tribal esports association as well as a chairman of the National Indian Gaming Association, spoke on the initiative.
“Indian Gaming has historically been a key driver of industry evolution, and with our entrance into esports, we plan to keep our nations at the forefront of gaming’s newest trends.”
Stevens III revealed that Esports Entertainment Group is a valuable partner who is incredibly well equipped to support the goals of the Indian Gaming Esports Federation.
“Esports Entertainment Group has the vision, expertise, and, most importantly, the assets for a turnkey business operation and future-minded strategy that aligns with the best interests of tribes and tribal casinos; no need to re-invent the wheel.”
The tribal esports association will boost the Native American esports scene by helping to create and maintain tribal teams. The iGEA plans to train those esports enthusiasts to a level where they can not only play locally but have the mettle to go on the regional, national, and even global stage.
The iGEA clearly sees that Esports Entertainment Group is indeed a valuable partner to have. The latter party boasts years of experience on the field and has many notable partners. EEG also recently acquired Bethard in a $27 million deal.
It is interesting to see how iGEA’s envisioned tribal esports ecosystem will develop.
