LAS VEGAS, Aug. 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Esports Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: EBET), a leading global provider of advanced esports wagering products and technology, has announced a meeting that took place on August 2, 2021 between CEO Aaron Speach and Prime Minister Robert Abela of Malta. The two met to discuss Esports Technologies' plans to set up its European headquarters in Malta, as well as Malta's strategic commitment to the esports industry.
Malta is the host location for both 2021 seasons of ESL Pro League, one of the major professional leagues in esports. This designation resulted from a strategic partnership between ESL and GamingMalta, an independent non-profit foundation established by the government and the Malta Gaming Authority.
Esports Technologies Inc., opened an office in Malta in June 2021 and plans to headquarter its European operations in the country. This should accelerate Esports Technologies' international growth strategy, with Malta becoming one of the European hubs for esports. The ESL Pro League commitment coupled with the country's highly educated talent pool, robust tech infrastructure, and business-friendly environment creates an exceptional opportunity for Esports Technologies in Malta.
Commenting on the August 2nd meeting, Aaron Speach said, "It was an extraordinary honor to meet with Prime Minister Abela, and I came away inspired by his vision to develop this beautiful country as a global hub for esports gaming. I look forward to working together to advance the mutual interests of Malta and Esports Technologies for many years to come."
Prime Minister Robert Abela said, "Esports is a refreshing and high growth industry, with a potential to play a very positive role in Malta's future economic growth, in terms of both GDP and job creation. I am delighted to welcome Esports Technologies to Malta and excited to see what the future holds for this company in Malta within such a dynamic industry."
