Esports Entertainment Group has agreed a deal for its VIE.bet brand to sponsor esports network Beyond the Summit’s (BTS) Counter-Strike Global Offensive (CS:GO) tournament next month.

Under the agreement, Esports Entertainment will serve as the official gambling sponsor of the event, which is due to run from 14-30 May.

The partnership will focus on the North and South American CS:GO audiences, with the event set be broadcast live in Portuguese and English. 

In addition, VIE.bet will offer live odds and specials throughout the event as its exclusive betting partner.

“The Summit, produced by BTS, has always been an event that is exciting and entertaining across all esports communities,” VIE director Bux Syed said. “Whether its CS:GO, Dota 2 or Smash Bros., the uniqueness of this event catches viewers from all over the world. 

“My team and I are very excited to partner with BTS for this event.”

BTS’s last CS:GO tournament – CS_Summit007 – generated 19.3 million total live event views from 6.4 million unique viewers on the Twitch platform.
