Scout and eFanGage Enter Agreement to Deliver In-Venue Sports Engagement Platform to the U.S.
LAS VEGAS, NV, Sep 22, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Scout Gaming, the world's leading global provider of B2B Daily Fantasy Sports, Sportsbook, Fantasy betting and other related sport-betting products, has entered into a partnership with eFanGage, a joint venture between SCCG Management and Backal Hospitality Group of New York, to deliver the latest in venue-based simulated social sportsbook, fantasy sports and esports for bars, restaurants, stadiums, and arenas across the U.S.
eFanGage will deliver a Free to Play (F2P) Fantasy sports software solution, designed to engage venue patrons through peer-to-peer competition and rewards within the physical locations of sports and entertainment focused venues and beyond.
All these activities are performed in the context of social fantasy sports and sportsbook content and contests popular to today's sports entertainment consumers and presented through familiar and fun games. Under the free to play model, guests can earn venue branded virtual currency which can be exchanged for a variety of purposes including perks, discounts, food and beverage, or goods, either online or at participating venues.
Andreas Ternstrom, Chief Executive Officer at Scout Gaming, said, "I'm glad that we can add another deal with our new social sportsbook. Arthur Backal is well-reputed in the hospitality sector and his ideas with eFanGage are groundbreaking."
"Sports betting has risen sharply across the country, and we see this as the perfect bridge for us to onboard new fans and participants in an exciting and interactive way," says Arthur Backal, Co-Founder of Efangage.
Arthur Backal, Co-Founder of eFanGage, and Founder of Backal Hospitality Group said, "We are thrilled to have reached an agreement with Scout Gaming. Together, we will deliver innovative technology containing a flexible gaming platform to enable social engagement towards our assets and many others, including restaurants, bars, and other hospitality venues. Sports betting has risen sharply across the country, and we see this as the perfect bridge for us to onboard new fans and participants in an exciting and interactive way."
Stephen Crystal, Co-Founder at eFanGage, and Founder and CEO of SCCG Management, said, "Quite simply, high quality brick and mortar venues capture the vitality of social engagement around live and virtual sports that cannot be replicated with a purely online presence. The timing for this experience is perfect, as the hospitality sector looks to recover from COVID-19 and address the massive pent-up demand for fan engagement, enhanced by the latest technology."
