The pioneering esports wagering company has increased its presence in the Latin American region through a new targeted and innovative partnership

Moving forward, Rivalry Corp will work with a number of leading creators who provide the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) community in the country with relevant and high-value content.

Rivalry will work with Tribo, a Brazilian Counter-Strike content group that features five creators who have been engaging with the Brazilian CS:GO community, a demographic that encompasses millions of people. The five content creators include Alessandro ”Apoka” Marucci, André “Liminha” Kenzo, Fillipe “BT” Moreno, Victor “VelhoVamp” Taube and Jean “mch” Michel D’Oliveira.
