Ultimate Tournament is now a proud member of the global ESports Integrity Commission (ESIC). We are very happy to be a part of a network of organizations dedicated to the protection and integrity of matches in the growing eSports industry.
Organizations like ESIC are crucial for legitimizing eSports as a professional sports genre. ESports has been historically stricken with controversy ranging from shady gambling rings to teams throwing pro matches and before ESIC there was little to no coordination between tournament operators, teams, gambling organizations, and legal authorities. This fraud makes it very difficult for the public to really embrace eSports as legitimate and safe to engage with. We aim to help fight fraud alongside the industries giants by being an active member of the ESIC network.
Customer safety and match integrity are our top priorities at Ultimate Tournament. In order for esports to grow, and for users to have the safe experience they deserve, we believe it is imperative to work together as an industry to set a standard for fair play, and to enforce those standards universally. We are very happy to have the opportunity to work with ESIC and join the fight against match fraud and help push esports to the next level!
