Specialist esports agency Promod Esports has signed up to become a member of the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC).
As part of its membership, Promod will integrate ESIC’s integrity codes and standards into its operations, with the aim of encouraging fair play and sporting integrity across all of its platforms.
Promod works with IP owners such as brands, game developers and rights holders to create live broadcast content around the tournaments it delivers, as well as event management and organised play.
By becoming a member of ESIC, Promod said this reinforces its operational commitment to competitive integrity, youth protection and commercial viability in the global esports sector.
“Ever since ESIC was established I strongly believed in their work and its importance to the esports industry in making it a safe and fair environment to be a part of,” Promod chief executive Rob Black said.
“We are thrilled to be a member of ESIC, and I am proud that we have taken this step to combat corruption during our tournaments. We are growing fast and becoming an ESIC member shows our commitment to our fans, our players, our clients and the industry.”
ESIC commissioner Ian Smith added: “It is such a pleasure to welcome Promod Esports into membership. I have known the guys behind this for a long time and it has given me a lot of joy to watch them put their offering together and begin to thrive in the esports ecosystem in the UK and further and further afield; especially as they have always kept competitive integrity and participant welfare at the heart of everything they do.
“I’m really looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial future with them as we work together to protect and enhance esports and, particularly, trust in the competitive integrity of all matches.”
