TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2024 /CNW/ – OverActive Media Corp. (TSXV:OAM) (“OverActive” or the “Company”), a premier global esports and entertainment company for today’s generation of fans, today announced that Telefónica, a long-time partner of Movistar Riders, has renewed their sponsorship for three years to the end of 2026. Upon completion of OverActive’s pending acquisitions of the esports assets of Goatch Global, S.L. (operating as “KOI”) and Team Randomk Esports S.L. (operating as “Movistar Riders”) (collectively, the “Acquisitions”), first announced on January 4, the multimillion-dollar multi-year agreement will represent the largest financial partnership in OverActive’s history.
