Esports Wagering Operator Looks to Target Western Europe, Including the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands and Ireland
Esports Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: EBET), a leading global provider of advanced esports wagering products and technology, announced today the planned opening of a new state-of-the-art office in Malta. The Malta location will house the majority of the Esports Technologies team and direct European market operations, working closely with the Esports Technologies office in Dublin. The additional office location will help accelerate Esports Technologies’ aspirations to expand into Western Europe, including the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands and Ireland. The new office is scheduled to be operational on November 15.
The Esports Technologies Malta office will join the company’s existing locations in Las Vegas and Dublin. The office will have an open floor plan that includes breakout spaces for individual work or small-group collaboration, a full boardroom, and a modern design incorporating esports themes. The workplace will also feature an esports-focused leisure area with gaming consoles, a full kitchen and bar, and direct access to Balluta Bay from the terrace.
Aaron Speach, CEO, Esports Technologies, said, “Europe’s esports engagement is on a steep growth trajectory, and we foresee tremendous growth in its esports wagering market. With its educated and talented workforce, strong tech infrastructure, and business-friendly environment, Malta offers the ideal location for us to create new opportunities across Europe. We look forward to providing a work setting designed to foster meaningful collaboration, increase productivity and spark creativity.”
This move will help accelerate the company’s growth strategy in Europe, which has an estimated esports audience of 92 million. Malta has emerged as an influential hub for esports on the continent. The Mediterranean country was chosen as the host location for both 2021 seasons of ESL Pro League, one of the major professional leagues in esports. Malta, a multilingual country and a hotbed for tech and blockchain , has worked closely with the private sector to establish the country as a global leader in the esports sector.
