PLLAY Labs enters multifaceted partnership with the Kansas City Pioneers


The two companies will collaborate on multiple projects to empower esports fans and monetize gameplay.

PLLAY Labs, the AI-driven fintech video game wagering platform, has announced a partnership with esports franchise, the Kansas City Pioneers.

Both companies will work to bridge esports and technology to enhance fan monetization and engagement across different avenues. The multifaceted partnership is based on creating, delivering and elevating cutting-edge technology and content that would resonate with esports fans and casual amateur gamers.

"As an entertainment and media company, we strive to build and create unique moments for our community. Our partnership with PLLAY is the first of its kind and will be a trendsetter for other esport organizations,” said Mark Josey, CEO of the Kansas City Pioneers. "We know our community loves competition between our professional teams but also competitions between themselves. PLLAY is a perfect fit for our Pioneers community, [so] look forward to our upcoming activations stemming across new gaming spaces."

PLLAY will use its technology platform to allow all professional and casual amateur gamers to monetize their personal gameplay. The deal will also allow both partners to leverage the utility of the PLLAY wagering and token economy to drive NFT activations for gaming fans worldwide.

"At PLLAY, we've long believed that giving professional and casual gamers the ability to control and monetize their own gameplay is the entertainment and competition of the future,” Shawn Gunn, Co-Founder and CEO at PLLAY, said. “We share a culture of innovation and strong sense of inclusive community — the KC Pioneers are challenging not only what it means to be an esports athlete but changing the way organizations are connecting with their fans."
