Monkey Knife Fight is finally expanding into the esports world.
It was probably inevitable given the growing popularity of esports. But COVID-19 gave the extra push needed for fantasy sports platform Monkey Knife Fight to finally expand their operations into esports. Thanks to a partnership with gaming events company Enthusiast Gaming, Monkey Knife Fight is now “leaning into esports as a growth area for fun and innovative new games for its user base.” In addition, Enthusiast Gaming will “activate its network of top esports influencers and create custom content on YouTube and Twitch to reach its gamer communities and promote Monkey Knife Fight’s platform.”
Traditional sports have ground to a halt because of COVID-19 risks, as well as almost all live esports events. Most esports have an online option that many leagues have taken to in order to keep operating during this pandemic. Therefore it’s natural to expect fantasy sports platforms to expand into esports given the current situation. So far, Monkey Knife Fight only offers two esports fantasy leagues: League of Legends and Counter Strike: Global Offensive. However, with this new partnership, we hope that Monkey Knife Fight will expand into other popular esports titles with new fantasy leagues.
