Entropiq, one of the rapidly-growing esports organisations, has entered into a new partnership with global sportswear brand PUMA.

The German company, which specialises in sportswear design and manufacturing, becomes Entropiq’s exclusive merchandising partner. From jerseys to shirts and hats, the apparel will be available for purchase on Queens.cz.

“In the last few months, we were in touch with several global brands, and after considerations and mutual agreement, we decided to sign with PUMA. I am delighted that we will be able to provide our players and fans with merchandising of the highest quality,” Ondřej Drebota, Managing Director of Entropiq, said.

“While the fans’ interest in buying our merchandise has been imminent ever since our organization entered the esports realm, we understood the importance of the decision. It is a privilege to join forces with such a renowned brand, which provides sportswear for the Czech national football team and several first division clubs,” Drebota added.

“PUMA follows the global trend of connection between sports and esports. We believe that, in today’s world, sports and esports are closely linked entities with many common features. I am very pleased that we can start our collaboration with esports organization Entropiq and together become a part of the gaming community on the Czech-Slovak as well as international stage,” Jan Sochor, Area General Manager Eastern Europe, PUMA, said.

“Esports events may take many hours, and it is important to feel comfortable while playing. All of us in the team were thrilled to hear that PUMA would be our new partner and provide our sportswear. The timing of the announcement just ahead of the Czech National Championship makes the partnership even more exciting,” Entropiq’s PUBG player Filip “RedgieBeardo” Tutko revealed.

“I am happy that Entropiq signed with PUMA, the designer of the national football team. It is a great connection, which ticks all the boxes,” Entropiq Ambassador Vladimír Šmicer said.

The German Commission for the Protection of Young People in the Media (Kommission für Jugendmedienschutz – KJM) has approved HooYu as a suitable age verification system.

The KJM offers providers legal certainty by reviewing concepts and systems to check that they meet the technical requirements to satisfactorily perform age verification which enables ID document validation and identification by means of an automated process involving the comparison of biometric data.

“As gaming operators embrace the new German regulatory regime, they are looking to age verification systems approved by the KJM. At the same time, operators want a customer sign-up process that makes it easy and convenient for the user to go through the age verification process. The HooYu digital KYC journey does just that, it solves both sides of the equation – what the regulator is looking for and that smooth sign-up experience that gaming operators want to provide to their users,” David Pope, Marketing Director of HooYu, said.
