Torque Esports Corp. (“Torque” or the “Company”) and UMG Gaming’s esports gaming content is positioned to reach millions of homes worldwide thanks to a programming syndication agreement with Blake Broadcasting.

Blake Broadcasting is a leader in broadcast innovation, consolidating global reach around the world in satellite, OTA (over the air) and OTT (over the top online) distribution – reaching a worldwide audience.

UMG’s range of live-streamed esports competitions and series will now be shown globally on Blake networks across North AmericaEurope, and the Asia-Pacific region.

The leading platform for online tournament play, esports events, and programming, UMG has generated more than 1.2 billion page views, 25 million video views, and has paid out more than US$3 million in prize money.

“We had been planning our syndication efforts towards the Esports Upfronts event, which was to be held in April in New York,” said Torque Esports President and CEO, Darren Cox.

“The rapid shift of interest in our existing simulator racing and competitive gaming content has been overwhelming. We had already been talking with Blake Broadcasting, so it seemed fitting to expand that deal to all of Torque & UMG Content.”

The recent launches of major sim racing events such as The Race All-Star Esports Battle and Legends Trophy plus the UMG’s Collegiate Clash events, were key drivers to sparking this relationship between Blake Broadcasting and Torque Esports.

This joint effort will bring exceptional reach for Torque Esports’ advertisers and sponsors in addition to our existing presence and reach to the competitive gaming audience.

“The live content pipeline, especially in sports, all but dried up overnight,” said Bob Blake, CEO of Blake Broadcasting.

“Torque & UMG Gaming already had a strong portfolio of competitive gaming content, from virtual motorsports to traditional series and remote competitions. The quality of Torque’s programming and deep experience and history made the decision easy.

“Adding Overwatch Collegiate Clash and The Race All-Stars Esports Battle motorsport events to their catalog just strengthens our joint effort further.”

The Torque Esports group also includes the Barcelona, Spain-based data analytics experts Stream Hatchet; Lyon, France-based game studio, Eden Games; Maranello, Italy-based motorsport simulator company, Allinsports; Silverstone, UK-based content and esports tournament creators, IDEAS+CARS; plus London-UK-based motorsport and esports racing media platform, The Race.

EPIC Risk Management has teamed-up with RecoverMe, a brand-new mobile health app that empowers individuals to manage a gambling addiction from their pocket.

The collaboration will see the RecoverMe app being used as part of selected EPIC Risk Management’s educational programmes to support individuals who may be at risk or already suffering from a gambling addiction.

RecoverMe has been developed by three junior doctors in consultation with psychologists, psychiatrists and those suffering from gambling addiction.

Dr Minal Jain, co-founder of RecoverMe: “We are delighted to announce our collaboration with EPIC to combine our efforts to reducing gambling-related harm across the country. Collectively, we can provide education, prevention, and management support within organisations where there is a higher prevalence of problematic gambling. Highlighting the need for all three of these fundamental components going forward.

“EPIC Risk Management was founded in 2013 and since then they have established themselves as experts in the education and prevention space. It is inspiring to see how Paul Buck (EPIC CEO & Founder) and the EPIC team have used their lived experience to make such a positive impact. They have worked with a number of organisations, in a variety of sectors throughout the country to tackle risks associated with a gambling addiction.

“By joining forces, we hope to increase the awareness around this addiction, reduce the stigma associated and offer individuals management tools such as RecoverMe that will be beneficial in their journey of recovery. Having shared the panel with EPIC, at the SBC Digital Summit in Barcelona earlier this year, there was a resounding discussion regarding the incorporation of innovative solutions, so, to be working with EPIC to make this happen is very exciting!”

Speaking about the collaboration, EPIC Risk Management’s Director of Educational Programmes, Patrick Foster said: “RecoverMe share many of EPIC’s values and approaches to reducing gambling-related harm. They share EPIC’s belief of how integral education is to provide a holistic approach to support individuals who may be at risk of developing a gambling addiction, or those who are already experiencing one.

“Furthermore, EPIC recognise and believe that everyone who is struggling with issues with gambling addiction is able to access support and treatment, and RecoverMe allows individuals who may not have a recognised support pathway to immediate, accessible and effective treatment.

“We are looking forward to collaborating with them moving forward in selected programmes”
