The Esports Integrity Coalition (ESIC) is proud to announce the addition of three new members to the organisation.
The new members help strengthen and solidify ESIC as a truly global organisation dedicated to combating all forms of corruption and cheating in the world of esports. The new members are:
- Geem – digital esports platform based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. GEEM is positioned to provide daily online competitions to the largely untapped, burgeoning esports community in the Middle East
- UMG – the rapidly growing esports platform, matchmaker and tournament organiser linking players, of every level, worldwide across a range of games and providing a pathway to pro as well as larger prize money events to aspire to.
- LVP – the dominant Spanish tournament organiser and gaming platform giving their large and active player base opportunities to compete in League of Legends, CS:GO and Clash Royale in their Superliga Orange. They also run the Circuitos Nacionales in Chile, Perú and Argentina as well as the Riot Opens in the LAN region (mainly in Mexico and Colombia).

Esports Integrity Commissioner Ian Smith said, “We are delighted to welcome all our new members to the Esports Integrity Coalition. Each one is doing something remarkable in their country or with exciting new technologies and we can’t wait to work with them to continue keeping the world of esports free from corruption, match manipulation, betting fraud and doping.”
Geem Founder, Charles Wright said, “One of our first moves after curating GEEM, before we had even launched our platform or hosted a tournament, was to join ESIC. We have a staunch outlook on creating a credible and safe environment for esports growth in the MENA Region. As we pivot and scale the platform, ESIC’s mission will remain at the core of all our offerings. The Middle East region is one to watch out for!.” https://geem.ae/en/
UMG CEO, Dave Antony said, “All of us at UMG believe in having the highest level of standards for ourselves, our products, and our gaming community. Joining the ESIC solidifies our commitment to our community and partners that we are making every effort to keep our gaming space fair and safe for all gamers everywhere, online and at live events." https://umggaming.com

As the engine that has powered the Spanish esports ecosystem since 2011, at the LVP we aim for competitions 100% free of manipulation and fraud, true to the values that have governed us from the very beginning: sportsmanship and fair play.” https://www.lvp.es/
