Esports Technologies expands to Malta

Esports Technologies has announced plans to open a new office in Malta, scheduled to be operational on 15 November 2021.

The new location will house the majority of the Esports Technologies team and direct European market operations, and will work closely with the company’s Dublin office. The group also has an office in Las Vegas.

“The additional office location will help accelerate Esports Technologies’ aspirations to expand into Western Europe, including the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands and Ireland,” a statement from the group read.

“Malta, a multilingual country and a hotbed for tech and blockchain, has worked closely with the private sector to establish the country as a global leader in the esports sector.”

The Malta office will have an open floor plan with a modern design incorporating esports themes, and will also feature an esports-focused leisure area with gaming consoles.

“Europe’s esports engagement is on a steep growth trajectory, and we foresee tremendous growth in its esports wagering market,” said Esports Technologies CEO Aaron Speach. “With its educated and talented workforce, strong tech infrastructure, and business-friendly environment, Malta offers the ideal location for us to create new opportunities across Europe.

“We look forward to providing a work setting designed to foster meaningful collaboration, increase productivity and spark creativity.”

The move comes after the company announced the acquisition of Aspire Global’s B2C business earlier this month. Totalling $75.9m, the transaction is expected to close by 30 November 2021.
