A global betting brand Parimatch expands its support of the global esports industry: just a month after signing a contract with 00Nation, it now enters an exclusive global partnership with the premier global esports organisation Team Secret. The cooperation takes effect on November 1, 2022.
Team Secret was founded in 2014 by Clement "Puppey" Ivanov, former player and captain of NAVI, a participant of all The International tournaments throughout its existence, and a winner of the very first TI. Team Secret has consistently been among the strongest in the world, ranking in top 6 of The International since 2018. Most recently, Team Secret won silver at The International 11, ranking second and winning over $2,4 million.
“Team Secret is one of the top esports organisations out there with an exceptional persevering fighting spirit that perfectly matches the Parimatch brand character. We are very excited to welcome the team to our partnership roster. Stay tuned to see all the great features this cooperation will bring to life!” said the Parimatch brand representative Stepan Shulga.
Team Secret shares Parimatch Tech’s commitment to strengthening the global esports community. The organisation relies on a simple but winning philosophy - focus on cultivating the positive culture that is critical to success in team based esports. Its international roster includes players from five countries, including a Ukrainian Roman "Resolut1on" Fominok.
“We are honoured to be welcoming Parimatch, one of the leading sports betting brands in the world. Partnering with Parimatch brings new opportunities for Team Secret DOTA and we look forward to working together to deliver unseen and behind the scenes content with the team,” said John Yao, Team Secret CEO.
"To announce a partnership with Parimatch is an extremely special moment for all of us. Parimatch opens up exciting opportunities, not only for Team Secret but for all of our fans that enjoy watching our content," commented Clement “Puppey” Ivanov, Team Secret DOTA 2 Captain.
According to the terms of the annual contract, Parimatch will become Team Secret’s Official Betting Partner and will be featured in-game and on the team's jerseys and hoodies. The agreement also covers creation of joint exclusive content in several channels, meet and greet events, tickets, etc.
