Under the deal, the esports betting operator will take the naming rights to Dignitas’ Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) esports team, with branding for its VIE.gg exchange betting platform to appear on players’ jerseys.
This will builds on a multi-year deal signed in June 2019, under which the VIE.gg platform serves as an official partner of Dignitas.
