Reading Time: 2 minutes

Parimatch, a top gaming operator in Russia and the CIS region having a user base of 1.7 million, has become the official UFC Betting Partner for the entire EMEA region, except for the UK and Ireland.

The first ever UFC event in Russia will take place at Moscow’s Olympic Stadium in September, which will have Parimatch as an “introducing partner.”

As per the company’s stats, 5% of its customers currently bet on UFC. The company planning to increase that to 10% within the year. This deal is expected to boost the customer base significantly.

CEO Sergey Portnov (pictured with UFC president Dana White) identified growth in mixed martial arts as the “No.1 priority for the company.”

He told iGamingBusiness.com: “UFC is the fastest growing kind of sports in the world after, I guess, cyber-sports. Everybody understands it’s a trend.”

“Parimatch is a trend company, and is aiming to become a leading company. When such an organisation like UFC enters the CIS market, we would like to be associated with the brand. We were the first to understand that UFC will need a partner and have built our partnership relations.”

Cyprus-headquartered Parimatch is already a sponsor of Ukraine’s national football team and partner of Ukrainian Premier League champion Shakhtar Donetsk, Russian Premier League side FC Rostov and Cypriot title-holder APOEL. It also holds partnerships with major hockey and basketball leagues in Ukraine. iGamingBusiness.com understands that esports team Virtus.pro will also soon be added to its portfolio.

As part of its partnership with UFC, Parimatch explained that its logo will be incorporated into athletes’ apparel and be displayed in the octagon and on the UFC.com website. Parimatch believes it can play a major role in building UFC’s presence in its own home region.

“This partnership is strategic and long-term. We aim to fix the MMA category for ourselves,” Portnov added.

“Passion drives our company, and we are ready to build a close and robust relationship with UFC and help them to develop this market. We are prepared to accustom the audience to such a great sport as MMA.”

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Entain Plc has launched a series of international initiatives to support girls and young women interested in building careers in technology.

Girls Who Code, an international non-profit organisation working to close the gender gap in technology, is to receive US$250K from the Entain Foundation, its not-for-profit affiliate, to support its global programmes to bring young women into the technology industry, most notably in the UK, US, Canada and India. The scale of Entain’s support makes it one of Girls Who Codes most significant global partners.

The Entain Foundation is also providing Aus. $50K funding to the Tech Girls Movement in Australia, which aims to challenge gender perceptions which limit girls’ participation in STEM through school-based early intervention programmes.

The new initiatives follow recent senior female appointments to the leadership team at Entain, including that of new chief executive Jette Nygaard-Andersen and two new non-executive board directors, Stella David and Vicky Jarman. Over 50% of Entain’s workforce is female, including over 30% in technology roles.

Jette Nygaard-Andersen, CEO of Entain, said: “I’m proud to be leading a global technology company which is making real strides in promoting women’s careers, not just in the West, but also developing markets like India where creating opportunities for young women is especially important.

“Everywhere however, the biggest challenges continue to be cultural, around what society and young women themselves believe they can do, which is why we are focusing on initiatives to support their education and build stronger pathways into technology-related careers.”

Dr. Tarika Barrett, incoming CEO of Girls Who Code, said: “Passionate, ambitious and diverse young women are the key to transforming the world and the technical workforce. This International Women’s Day, we’re excited to partner with the Entain to support young women around the world on their journey into the technical workforce. Our work together will help spur the creation of a more fair and equitable workforce, helping more women of all backgrounds rise to the top and achieve their goals of working in tech.”
