PVP Live Raises almost $2 Million in new Private Funding and Debuts Game-Changing Esports iOS and Android Applications

Frisco, Texas – PVP Live, the most comprehensive daily source for esports news, scores and highlights, announces the launch of its new iOS and Android applications. Fans are now able to receive free, up-to-the-minute coverage upon downloading from the iTunes App Store or Google Play.

PVP Live has raised almost $2 million in new private funding. This major milestone will help PVP Live continue to innovate while rapidly becoming the top destination for esports content.

“The esports world continues to explode, reaching more fans every day, and we feel that we are truly the heartbeat of the gaming industry,” said Casey Wehr, co-founder and CEO of PVP Live. “This concept was born out of our passion for gaming, and everything we do is with our equally passionate end users in mind. We’re excited to be able to place frequent, authentic content right at our fans’ fingertips via our apps, in real time.”

While a number of outlets aggregate coverage of esports, PVP Live stands apart from competitors by continuing to fulfill user needs and offering several differentiating factors, including:

  • Coverage of all top games and real-time delivery of scores
  • Quick and customized app notifications
  • Original video content created by esports fans, for esports fans
  • No aggregated content
  • Sleek, streamlined design across all platforms
  • A highly engaged community of readers and fans
  • An entertaining, funny, and pop culture-savvy style of content

Co-founders Casey Wehr and Chester Srp recognized a unique need in the growing esports market for a standalone product 100 percent dedicated to esports coverage, and officially launched PVPLive.net in June 2015. After PVP Live’s venture capital funding fell through shortly after, Wehr, Srp and their talented team continued to improve upon the website and build the apps, while simultaneously raising capital on their own, ultimately raising almost $2 million in private capital with support from angel investors.

“It’s been quite a journey for our team, and we are very proud that we were able to raise enough funding to continue to build out the best game-changing product on the market for esports fans,” said Chester Srp, co-founder of PVP Live. “We look forward to bringing the best content available to esports fans around the world for years to come.”

PVP Live is free to download on iOS through iTunes, or on Android through Google Play. To view a sample of PVP Live’s original video content, click here.
