VANCOUVER, British Columbia, February 3, 2022 – ESE Entertainment Inc. (“ESE” or the “Company”) (TSXV: ESE) (OTCQB: ENTEF) is pleased to announce its partnership with BallStreet Trading (“BallStreet”) in connection with BallStreet’s $50,000 free-to-play live Super Bowl event, “The Market”.
Partners include sports betting exchange Sporttrade, financial media company Litquidity, and gaming entertainment company ESE Entertainment Group (TSXV: ESE) (OTCQB: ENTEF). The peer-to-peer prediction platform earlier announced a partnership with Benzinga.com creating this first-of-its-kind Super Bowl experience.
Scott San Emeterio, BallStreet CEO, said: “We’re really excited to be given an opportunity to work with like-minded partners like Sporttrade, Litquidity, and ESE. We can all see the trend in the market and we’re working to collectively accelerate it.”
Alex Kane, Founder and CEO of Sporttrade, added “We are thrilled to be joining three partners that share our vision and recognize the confluence of the financial markets and sports. This partnership represents an exciting opportunity to work alongside BallStreet Trading and introduce a new way of enjoying sports.”
Litquidity, which is an investor in BallStreet, will play a pivotal role with access to its expansive social media channels. Litquidity commented, “BallStreet is bringing content to life through its live markets. Gamification of content is such a great approach.” Mark Moran, Head of Growth at Litquidity added “We’re seeing such a disruption in conventional media and marketing. We see significant upside with our BallStreet partnership.”
ESE will be bringing its expertise in esports to support the event. Konrad Wasiela, CEO of ESE, commented “The free-to-play space is very exciting and an area we’ve always wanted to get into. BallStreet has developed very unique technology and intellectual property that enhances user engagement and fits very well with ESE. We think there are many applications for the BallStreet platform to be used across esports very soon in our ecosystem.”
The Market will run from February 9th through the end of the game on February 13, 2022, with two live contests, “First Team to Score 10 Points” and “Winner of Game”. Both contests will be real-time and open to traders to join and trade for free while they watch the game. The Market is not associated with the NFL.
