Monday 6th July, 2020, Dubai: Intigral, a leading provider of digital entertainment and sports in MENA, is pleased to announce further expansion into the gaming and esports space through a partnership agreement with Cheesecake Digital, the leading esports and gaming agency in the Gulf.
Intigral recently introduced gaming content to the DawriPlus platform, in an expansion which will see Arabic-speaking broadcasts of local, regional and international esports and gaming tournaments transmitted on DawriPlus and Intigral’s range of products. Cheesecake Digital will act as a liaison between Intigral and tournament organisers who wish to reach the young Saudi audience through Intigral’s platforms.
“With the global situation imposed by COVID-19, we’ve seen an increase in awareness and viewership of esports and gaming at a time when other activities and events have been restricted. Our recent expansion into gaming content will be further enhanced by the tournament broadcasts we will be bringing to the platform which will enable Saudi users to have the best of both sports and gaming content,” commented Karim Saade, Head of Marketing at Intigral.
Philip Wride, CEO Of Cheesecake Digital, added that “DawriPlus has an audience desired by both brands and tournament organisers, and working with Intigral enables us to support local and international tournament organisers. Our aim is to raise awareness of tournament organisers and the amazing content they produce by providing a platform where they can immediately access and engage an important audience in the region. For brands, this agreement presents an opportunity to align with local and international content that resonates with the target audience while also ensuring that DawriPlus is a central destination for the best gaming content.”
Through the partnership, Intigral and Cheesecake Digital will help international tournament organisers localise their broadcasts for DawriPlus while unlocking new sponsorship and advertising inventory from the region. Bespoke assets and inventory will also be created, enabling brands to connect with gamers on the DawriPlus platform in new and exciting ways.
