“We have an unswerving desire to develop premium esports content,” read a Fun88 statement. “With OG, we are working alongside the most engaging team in the entire esports ecosystem, we want to offer customers fresh and progressive ways to interact with the games they love.”
However, OG also fields a roster in CS:GO since December 2019 but Fun88's esports upgrade will initially focus on the primary game DotA 2 and the markets around it ‘to bring fans closer to the Dota 2 action than ever before’.
Juan M. R. Luna, CEO at OG, added: “The OG Esports Dota 2 legacy is built on the values of Friendship, Trust, and Competitive Excellence. We are thrilled to welcome Fun88 to both esports and the OG Family. This signifies a great tie-up between the market-leading online gaming brand and the TI back-to-back champions.
“As our team-belief of ‘Dream OG’ aligns perfectly with FUN88’s own brand slogan ‘Live Your Dream’, we are committed to partner together to ignite worldwide Dota 2 players, firing fans’ passion and excitement to pursue their dreams.”
