Timely and transparent payouts are not enough to have a successful event. For that, you need a healthy prize pool. Matcherino provides all the crowdfunding capabilities so you can grow your event’s prize pool.
Large prize pools attract famed participants, increasing your audience as well as sponsorship interest in your event.
More sponsors means more funds to pay yourself and your players.
Sponsors want to reach the esports demographic but are often frustrated by an inability to measure their success. Brand awareness through logo placement is a great start, however sponsors want more. They are willing to compensate your event for encouraging its audience to perform tangible actions to promote their brand. Matcherino facilitates this through a cost-per-action model.
Only the Matcherino platform lets brands make a micro-donation to the prize pool when a fan completes a sponsor deﬁned action, including:
App and game installs
New Twitter followers & retweets
Website Visits and page viewers
Twitch and Youtube channel subscriptions
Mailing list sign ups and form signs
Publishers know that esports fans are some of their best customers.
According to Wargaming, World of Tanks esports players play the game for 3x longer and spend, on average, 3.5x more. Publishers want their esports communities as big as possible, and in many cases are willing to support you the tournament organizer.
For example, Matcherino has sold publisher-made skins to increase prize pools for events like Nation Wars V in conjunction with O’Gaming and Blizzard.

Matcherino was the first third-party platform to ever support the prize pool with skin sales from Blizzard. Using Matcherino the Nation Wars V event sold almost $50k in virtual items, significantly growing the event’s prize pool.
Even small increases in prize pools can lead to a huge increase in viewership. Rewind II (a Team Fortress 2 event) saw a 8x increase in viewership when skins were sold (donated by Valve) from the first event.
