Our specialist esports services
Esports is not only the fastest growing sporting industry in the world but also one of the most global in its nature, and as such is subject to a wide and varied collection of risks. Whatever aspect of the eSports industry you are in, whether as a sponsor, event organiser, game developer, league or team, GSR can provide tailored and complex insurance solutions that will protect you against any of the unique risk which you may face.
The GSR team is here to provide you with protection against all associated risks in hosting or organising a tournament. Whether that is for the property and equipment, liabilities surrounding the tournament including deadly weapons cover and for all contingency’s including cancellation, abandonment and non-attendance of special guests.
As an eSports team your suite of risks is different to that of other eSports businesses. GSR can provide protection for you, for your media and broadcasting liabilities brought about through streaming and vlogging, against financial loss following an injury, accident or illness and for the loss of sponsorship following libel or slander by a team member.
