Charlie Hanley-Nickolls, Chief Product Officer at GRID, commented:
“The first esports event I ever attended as a fan was PGL Bucharest back in 2017, and the consistency and quality of what Silviu and his team put out is always first class. The fact that we can contribute to this incredible fan’s experience as the official data partner of PGL for the third year is a real privilege.”
Silviu Stroie, PGL CEO, added:
“We’re excited to continue our partnership with GRID for the PGL Antwerp Major.
“Data has become a vital part of the esports ecosystem. The role data plays in broadcast, integrity, and revenue is crucial to the continued growth and stability of the scene.”
The partnership between GRID and PGL expands their initial partnership which began in 2019.
The PGL Antwerp kicked off on May 9 with the Challengers Stage, and the tournament has several notable sponsors such as Secretlab, Bitget and GG.BET.
