About EarlyGame:

Launched in 2019 by Fabian Furch and Leopold Ingelheim, EarlyGame aims to become the No.1 destination for gamers and esport enthusiasts. Serving a global audience in English, German, and Spanish content, EarlyGame now boasts over 5 million users a month with similar growth seen with the newest brands Valorfeed and RiftFeed. EarlyGame launches in 2022 exactly where it left off in 2021 and continues on the path of establishing itself as one of the leading brands in gaming and eSports. 

The interim results for the start of 2022 are very positive and all-important key figures point to continued rapid growth.

Against the background of the very pleasing overall development of EarlyGame, Germany’s biggest sports publisher Kicker has also repeatedly expanded its investment. Not only the media interest but also the interest in an investment in the field of esports and gaming is currently very high. With a further financing round in the 2nd quarter of 2022 and further international partnerships, the expansion of the product range, the maximization of user numbers – currently there are more than 5 million unique users on the platforms plus another 35 million via social media per month – and the continuous development of the brand will be further accelerated.
