Canadian sports & esports betting and media company Rivalry announced Wednesday that it has partnered with Australian esports organization Grayhound Gaming. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Under the terms of this new partnership, Rivalry will collaborate with the organization to create content and host local in-person meet-and-greets that promote its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster during upcoming events such as ESL Pro League and DreamHack Melbourne. In addition, Rivalry branding will be featured on the chest of Grayhound’s official team jerseys and its social channels will feature Rival branding. Finally, the deal includes in-game naming rights, with the team playing under the banner “Grayhound.Rivalry” during CS:GO tournaments.
In February, Rivalry signed a partnership deal with professional Valorant player Matthew ”Wardell” Yu and in January, it inked a one year deal with Brazilian esports organization RED Canids.
