Los Angeles, California (August 4, 2015) - AlphaDraft - the leading daily fantasy sports platform that seamlessly blends the highly popular worlds of eSports, live streaming and fantasy sports contests - today announces three key partnerships with some of the biggest North and South American eSports personalities and organizations, focused primarily on Valve’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) and Riot Games’ League of Legends (LoL).
AlphaDraft has signed a strategic content partnership with leading eSports organization, Team Dignitas, which holds a rich contest-winning history across competitive gaming. Several popular members of Team Dignitas will produce fantasy eSports blogs, host contests for AlphaDraft members on-site and through social media, as well as stream a variety of competitive eSports titles live.
Ram "Brokenshard" Djemal, head coach of Team Dignitas EU, will host the new AlphaDraft web-series Re-Cap, where he will talk to League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) coaches and analysts, as well as take a look at performance stats of four weekly best games from North America, Asia and Europe. Djemal will also discuss player rankings and provide fantasy drafting advice for members of AlphaDraft.
“I am very excited to work with AlphaDraft, having played fantasy leagues since I was young,” explained Team Dignitas manager, Michael O’Dell. “AlphaDraft will enable Team Dignitas to progress even further on our journey. Look out for some fantastic offers, competitions and additional amazing eSports content on our website, made possible through our partnership with AlphaDraft.”
“We are delighted to expand our strategic partnership initiatives by working with top notch broadcasters like summit1g and leading eSports teams Luminosity Gaming and Team Dignitas. Together, we will offer further outstanding eSports content,” said AlphaDraft CEO Todd Peterson. “We’re also particularly excited to be a catalyst in helping eSports achieve a broader, global footing. Amazing-but-globally-underrated talent - like Brazil’s former Keyd Stars - deserves top billing also in North America, Europe, and Asia. We’re thrilled to be part of that process.”
