Esports One Launches First All-in-One Fantasy Esports Platform

‘Bloomberg Terminal’ for Fantasy Esports Leverages 2.3 Billion Data Points to Deliver Scintillating Experience that Allows Fans to Compete, Research, Watch and Chat


“Simply put, we’re building a platform for competitive viewing that functions like a Bloomberg Terminal for esports,” said Matthew Gunnin, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Esports One.

Today, Esports One launches out of beta as the first all-in-one fantasy esports platform with real-time predictive data. The company will initially be supporting League of Legends LCS and LEC regions, with more titles to come online later this year. Fans can register for the Summer season now at, and can get a taste of the action with the current Spring season now in the playoffs.

‘Bloomberg Terminal’ Experience for Fantasy Esports

Following two years of development, the Esports One platform harnesses more than 2.3 billion data points accrued from 10 years of historical gameplay and nearly 100 million players. Rather than being dependent on game publisher’s APIs, Esports One uses computer vision developed out of MIT and CalTech to capture this data, enabling Esports One to expand to an unlimited number of titles. It then marries this with machine learning to drive proprietary, predictive insights that deliver 90% accuracy within 10 minutes of the start of each match. With the unprecedented amount of data at their fingertips, participation is transformed into a ‘competitive viewing’ experience that anticipates the future of interactive entertainment. Players can leverage this data to create their fantasy lineup and much more:

  • Compete - Play for prizes and in-game items through private, sponsored, and geo-fenced leagues.
  • Research - Access historical stats on each player and their performance trajectory.
  • Read - Browse daily articles and watch interviews.
  • Watch - View streams embedded directly into the platform. 
  • Chat - Interact with your friends on Discord before, during and after game-play.

With a global audience of 454 million fans, esports’ popularity rivals that of traditional sports. In 2019 a single esport tournament, League of Legends World Championships, drew more than 100 million viewers. This popularity has led to a plethora of publishers, games and regions all with different data types, making it difficult to aggregate data onto a single platform, until now. 

“Simply put, we’re building a platform for competitive viewing that functions like a Bloomberg Terminal for esports,” said Matthew Gunnin, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Esports One.

How it works:

Participating in the Esports Fantasy experience is quick and simple enough for the novice player, while also boasting robust data sets that the true esports fan will love. The salary cap-style will be familiar to anyone who has played fantasy sports. Simply:

  • Set up a free account to play along with the current League of Legends LCS (North American) and LEC (European) seasons, each featuring 10 professional teams.
  • Use the Esports One statistical data to see which players are performing well, who their next opponent is, and what their likely points total will be in the next match.
  • Pick one player for each of the five positions, plus an overall team selection, without exceeding the $1.5 million salary cap. 
  • Players can adjust weekly lineups until each Friday’s weekly deadline.
  • Now the fun begins. Players can watch the games on the Esports One platform and see how their lineup does in real-time and see how they stack up against thousands of other players
  • If a player’s lineup scores enough points, the player will be in the running for weekly cash prizes of up to $1000 and season prizes of $50,000, $20,000 and $10,000 

Esports One has already become a trusted resource in the gaming industry, providing data for Acer’s Planet 9 esports platform, League of Legends publisher Riot Games, and a real-time Twitch extension for viewership education. Additionally, the Esports One fantasy bot has been installed on more than 6,000 Discord servers, driving engagement and awareness with more than 410,000 users.
