The pandemic may have decimated some local businesses – but certainly not the Richmond gaming industry.

TGS Esports Inc announced last week its intention to acquire esports tournament organizer Even Matchup Gaming Inc (EMG). The company is best known for being responsible for launching Canada’s first 3rd path gaming stadium in 2019.

EMG owns and operates a number of major eSports competitions, including Get On My Level, the largest fighting games tournament in Canada. In 2020, the tournament brought together more than 3,000 competitors and over 10 million minutes in total watched.

Additionally, EMG has hosted and broadcast over 100 eSports events over the past two years. In 2019, EMG had revenue of $ 300,000 and interacted with over 18 million viewers.

“EMG is a property that is synonymous with esports,” Spiro Khouri, CEO of TGS, said in a press release. “I have been a huge fan for a long time and am delighted to be working with Joe (Joseph Cribari, CEO of EMG) and his team to help EMG take it to the next level.”

TGS Esports Inc, which is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange, owns and operates The playing stadium, an eSports site based at 4211 No. 3 Rd. Although the gaming stadium is closed due to the pandemic, their online tournaments and events have seen significant growth, according to a recent blog post of the playing stadium.
