Betway backs youth academy project of MIBR esports 

Betway has backed esports partner Made in Brazil’s (MIBR) launch of its ‘Feitos no Brasil scouting and player development programme which aims to strengthen the organisation’s CS:GO ranks. 

From July to August, MIBR will host player try-out events sponsored by Betway, with the aim of finding Brazilian esport’s top CS:GO talents to join MIBR’s new academy roster.

The project sees Betway deepen its principal sponsorship of MiBR, which is recognised as Brazil’s oldest and most successful esports franchise.

MiBR’s longest-serving sponsor to date, Betway helped franchise founder and coach Ricardo ‘DEAD’ Sinigaglia to revive the pro CS:GO organisation back in 2018.

The Feitos no Brasil academy is spearheaded by Brazilian’s esports veterans Renato ‘Nak’ Nakano and Henrique ‘Rikz’ Waku who have been tasked with nurturing MIBR’s future talent resources.   

Supporting MIBR’s academy, Betway highlighted its commitment to esports professional development, in which the bookmaker serves as a principal sponsor to G2 Esports, FURIA, and PSG Esports, among others. 

Betway Esports Director, Adam Savinson, underscored the project’s importance in helping MiBR’s beyond its commercial obligations.  

“‘Brazil has such an incredible pool of CS:GO talent and we’re really proud to support the search for the next big star with Feitos no Brasil by Betway,” Savinson remarked.
