This success is testament to the tireless efforts of the team, and our partners, in creating an unrivalled fan experience that strengthens Pinnacle’s relationship with the esports community. Our commitment to the Pinnacle Cup II further showcases our ambition to scale our value proposition through our products and the streaming of the tournament in collaboration with GRID and Relog Media. We look forward to welcoming back some of the teams that took part in the first edition of the Pinnacle Cup and opening the door for more of the world’s best teams to battle it out for the chance to be champion.” – Paris Smith, CEO – Pinnacle
