Esportz Entertainment Corporation was founded February 7, 2019 by CEO Mark Thimmig, and is based in Irvine, California. The corporation runs Esportz Network, a subscription and ad-based network which provides coverage of esports events on streaming services, social media, and mobile applications.[3] As of October 2019, Esportz Network had over 50 independent reporters. The network covers professional and amateur tournaments for games such as Dota 2, League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Super Smash Bros.

In September, 2019 Reuters announced that it was partnering with Esportz Network to provide esports coverage to subscribers of Reuters Connect.[4] Esportz Entertainment also became a regular feature on Reuters' "Keeping Score" podcast, which covers sports business.[5]

In addition to providing coverage of esporting events, Esportz Entertainment produces other esports related content such as merchandise and apparel. Esportz Entertainment partnered with Athleta-Ed to collaborate on a training and education program targeted at both traditional and esports athletes.[6]
