Esports Entertainment Group Announces Fan-Centered EGL ClubClash Program with Professional Sports Teams

Newark, New Jersey--(Newsfile Corp. - October 21, 2021) - Esports Entertainment Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: GMBL) (NASDAQ: GMBLW) (or the "Company") has partnered with a number of professional sports teams as their official esports tournament provider. Over the past year, fans of these organizations have enjoyed playing in one-off tournaments to see who is the best gamer. In an effort to provide fans more opportunities for interaction with one another and all of the participating teams, the Company is excited to unveil a brand new, immersive program titled "EGL ClubClash", which gives fans the opportunity to play on their team's behalf to prove which team has the greatest gamers.

As competitors play different games, they will earn team and individual points called "ClubClash Rep" which can be used to redeem everything from team merchandise to tickets. Some of the top prizes include tickets to a home game, signed and game worn memorabilia, video messages from players and more.

"With the unveiling of EGL ClubClash, we're thrilled to bring a unique experience to sports and esports fans alike," said Magnus Leppäniemi, President of Esports at Esports Entertainment Group. "Competitors will get to play their favorite games while also being able to earn exclusive experiences that bring them closer to the team they follow and represent during this program."

Each professional team participating in EGL ClubClash will have their own leaderboards with constant updates on weekly and lifetime ranking in addition to where the team stands in the overall program standings. EGL Club Clash will have two distinct areas - Arena and Arcade - with arena being a more traditional competitive platform where players will vie for Rep and cash prizes through solo play and tournaments. Meanwhile, Arcade allows players to compete at any time to earn Rep.

EGL ClubClash's Arena mode opens up preseason registration on October 25, 2021 with the preseason getting underway on November 24. The preseason finals will take place December 15-18. Madden, Fortnite, Rocket League and Valorant are the four games selected for the preseason. The first full season (arcade and arena) kicks off on January 3, 2022, with the finals taking place March 23-26.
