Tournament organiser Relog Media has partnered with the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) in order to help strengthen the integrity of its CS:GO events.
As a result of the collaboration, the Serbia-based esports tournament operator and production company will implement ESIC’s rules, penalties and integrity goals during its events.
Relog and ESIC will also work together to identify any forms of misconduct or match manipulation during the events, with the partnership in effect at its SnowSweetSnow competition.
According to the press release, Relog will share the same integrity tier as ESL, DreamHack and BLAST, highlighting the firm’s commitment to supporting CS:GO’s ecosystem.
Milutin Pecic, CEO of Relog Media commented: “Here at Relog Media, we have been working towards raising our integrity standard to be on par with leaders such as ESL & Dreamhack. Thanks to our cooperation with ESIC, we have been able to accomplish that feat.
“As we continue to progress with our events and commitments with teams across the year, we are now ensuring our events share the highest quality of integrity for the teams and our viewers across the year.”
Relog Media is one of many esports companies to partner with ESIC in the last 12 months. Last year alone the commission joined forces with the likes of Cyber.bet, WePlay Esports and U Can Company (UCC), amongst others.

We look forward to collaborating with Relog in order to help them to integrate our integrity program into their operations thereby promoting the continual harmonisation of competitive integrity efforts in esports.
“Relog Media’s commitment to ESIC is indicative of their dedication to maintain integrity in their esports operations.”
Esports Insider says: As esports continues to develop and garner traction, it is imperative that integrity is maintained throughout. Relog Media partnering with ESIC will help strengthen the integrity standards at the tournament organiser’s events which will undoubtedly benefit CS:GO’s competitive ecosystem.
