M88 Mansion and FACEIT announce new partnership

Published: Mar 22, 2024

Betting and entertainment platform M88 Mansion has announced a new partnership with tournament platform FACEIT. In a release published on March 21, the two platforms announced a collaboration that would see new tournaments, leagues, and promotions hosted in the APAC region for the next year.

The partnership will see M88 Mansion be named an “Official FACEIT Platform Partner,” hosting tournaments and campaigns for players in Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and India. These will include “missions” which are individual-based gaming and matchmaking features on the FACEIT platform, open to players 18 years old and above to earn prizes while playing Counter Strike 2 (CS2).

The collaboration will also facilitate the creation of a two-division League system: The M88 Pro League and M88 Open Leagues for CS2. The M88 Pro League, which features two seasons, will be open to all CS2 players in the aforementioned countries. The prize pool will be up to $10,000 each season, as well as additional prizes and drops – facilitated by the FACEIT platform.

Finally, M88 Mansion and FACEIT will collaborate on branded weekend events, short-form ladder-style competitions where FACEIT users can compete and win prizes on the platform. These are promised to run every Friday and Sunday for the next year.

M88’s expansion into esports has been broad as of late, with the company inking partnerships with G2 Esports, Invictus Gaming, and Talon Esports in the past 18 months. Traditionally a conventional sports betting brand, this new partnership with FACEIT pushes their involvement in esports to new heights.

M88 Mansion is a leading online gaming entertainment platform in Asia. With over 14 years of experience, the company has built a loyal customer base in Vietnam, Indonesia, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Korean, and beyond. Their goal is to become the number one betting and gaming destination in Asia.

FACEIT is part of the ESL FACEIT Group, a subsidiary of the Savvy Gaming Group, part of the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF). An esports company with over a decade of experience, FACEIT is a league and tournament platform that facilitates online and offline competition at the highest levels of gaming.
