Scout Gaming builds on World Cup momentum for EPL tournament

B2B fantasy sports provider Scout Gaming is basking in the glow of a successful World Cup, by announcing the launch of a new fantasy tournament for the fast approaching football season.

For the upcoming English Premier League campaign the company is to launch a fresh fantasy tournament, featuring a minimum guaranteed prize pool of €100,000, and available via partner organisations of the Scout Gaming Network.

Labelled as “ the highest ever prize pool on European fantasy football,” it is stated that first time participants will be able to scoop up to one thousand times their entry fee, “with one lucky winner being able to take home €20,000”.

Bjorn Fjellby, Product Operations Officer of Scout Gaming, commented: ”We are offering our partners an opportunity to be the first in the world to offer six digit prize pots on fantasy Premier League. Increased interest in our product as well as upcoming clients launches has made this a possibility.”

This announcement builds upon the Scout Gaming €30,000 prize offered on its season game for the recently concluded Russian World cup, “a record at the time”.

Due to the success enjoyed during that period, via the increased momentum and client activity generated, prize pools have subsequently been able to be increased.

Frederik Iversen, Product Manager of Bethard, added: “Bethard has high hopes for our new fantasy sports product from Scout Gaming. For sport fans, it is a great way of proving your knowledge about the game that excites you.

“We are very happy to be included in the record breaking guaranteed tournament going on for the entire 2018/19 Premier League season.”
