Short answer is NO!

We have not been told anything about the gfinity deal which I think is extremely disappointing.

The only thing you can do is look on gfinity website where gfinity provide a brief, and then speculate bids are involved. Eg gfinity mention Middle East not so long ago and would be utilising the deal with bids to advertise.

Cards being kept close to chest re gfinity deal. Make of that what you will

Don't know is the answer actually Girdz but likely in my opinion. I checked to see if Bidstack had liked Gfinity's twitter posts on the subeject it but they hadn't.

The RNS on their partnership however, said: 'Gfinity's web platforms, connecting publishers and large-scale brands with gamers and esports enthusiasts. The solutions that will be offered include programmatic advertising, bespoke video and audio-based promotions and brand site takeovers.'

'Gfinity's web platforms include Gfinityesports and Realsports101.'

The Realsports101 website has a Fifa section.

The Gfinity release is '"The BT Sport FIFA Challenge".'

Not conclusive but there is enough there to make me think they would be involved in some way.

Pure speculation but, anybody else think the M&A activity last year that didn't happen, might have been GFIN?

@jimmy_stocks
Quite possible you are right there, as at the end of the year they were in doldrums so could have been snapped up.

@hopeabound
The question posed is do we know? My answer was no, as no we don’t know!!

Ecricket - Pollard vs Archer


Clearly missing a trick for advertising boards not to use bidstack technology to tailor to betway sponsor. Vitality and specsavers hard coded ads shows throughout must be a bit of a turnoff for sponsors.

Under the terms of the contract, Gfinity will deliver a dedicated account management team responsible for the delivery of all elements of the programme; a full league operations team responsible for writing all rules and governing the drivers participating in the tournament; and provide the use of 'Race Control', Gfinity's proprietary in-race adjudication system.

Since 2017, we have seen the rapid growth of the F1 Esports Series and Gfinity have played a core part in that through their continued support in developing and delivering the series.
