Those applying will need to be ” passionate sports fans eager to work in a global setting”.

The new Latvian daily fantasy football platform Champick has entered Georgian, Hungarian and South African markets by signing strategic partnerships with local media companies in a bid to boost product growth. There are further discussions ongoing to extend Champick’s reach into other countries too. 

Champick’s fantasy platform with “an industry first scalable business model”, was launched in May 2016 and after a successful BETA product test it has acquired 30 000 users and is now expanding internationally by signing strategic partners globally, and continuing product improvement and mobile app development.

Eriks Nelsons, Champick CEO, commented: “I’m glad that after the hard work of the last 12 months we have proven our business model and received positive feedback from fantasy players and strategic partners all around the world.

A year ago we predicted scalability issues for existing fantasy giants globally (such as Draftkings and Fanduel); their business could be perceived as similar to gambling and lottery companies.”

He continued: “Lately we have seen many issues for them in the USA and even the obstructing of market entries in other continents, which gives us many opportunities all around the world.”

Champick itself was founded in November 2015, a joint effort by Eriks Nelsons, Karlis Ozols, Igors Menko, Mark Kriek and Patrick Ranzijn, and those interested in being involved can contact Eriks at [email protected]
