Talent Lyfe will be providing services ranging from video analysis and image rights management, with these tailor-made services ensuring the total commitment to achieve objectives set with the athlete, because, beyond the contractual aspect, it is the 360 degrees relationship with the athlete that is the goal.

Founder and CEO of Talent Lyfe, Mikaël Silvestre said: “The launch of Talent Lyfe represents a genuinely significant moment in the representation of elite athletes around the world. We place the interests of our clients at the very centre of what we do, and our innovative approach to management connects athletes with opportunities that define careers and secures their future.

The global sports betting industry continues to evolve at a rapid pace. As the pastime gets more and more popular with users, it is also becoming more diversified.

As esports betting continues to become more widespread, Oddin.gg, the leading esports betting solutions provider, has been selected by sports betting and platform provider Novusbet to help the latter expand its portfolio.

Novusbet operates primarily in Latin America and Africa, where the majority of its clients are located. Going forward, those clients will gain access to Oddin.gg’s unique and innovative iFrame esports betting solution.

Novusbet will implement Oddin.gg’s iFrame at the beginning of 2022. This will give all their clients access to tournaments and events for titles like CS:GO, Dota 2, and League of Legends, already household names in the fast-growing industry.

We are excited to be able to launch their iFrame for our clients, who will benefit from the innovation and advanced technology that Oddin.gg continues to bring to the esports space.”
