Scout Gaming signed a license agreement with Jogajà, under which the latter receives full access to Scout Gaming’s complete Fantasy Sports platform, according to a press statement by Scout Gaming. The agreement also signals Scout Gaming’s entrance to the Brazilian market.

Scout Gaming’s products are expected to be launched during the first half of 2019. As part of the Brazilian launch, the product range will be supplemented by local leagues.

“We continue to build our global network and are excited about entering South America. We are experiencing an increasing global interest in Fantasy Sports gradually”, says Andreas Ternström, CEO of Scout Gaming.

Jogajà, led by Jacob Lindorff with background from Expekt, Betway and Bonnier Gaming, is a startup backed by Swedish venture capitalists.

“Fantasy Sports has experienced strong global growth with the US as a leading market. The Brazilian sports betting market is the largest in South America; therefore, we see great potential for daily fantasy sports. Together with our partners, media companies and influencers, we will launch the coming spring and have high ambitions for the product,” says Jacob Lindorff.

The group has approximately 70 staff and is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden with development and operations in Bergen, Norway and Lviv, Ukraine. Sales, support and product management is handled from the office in Malta.
