Revenant Esports, an esports, lifestyle, and gaming organization headquartered in Mumbai, has announced a revamped roster for the 2024 Brawl Stars esports season. The new roster retains Indian star and decorated Brawl Stars athlete, Ashmit “Sergeant Clash” Singh, with the addition of two talents from Japan.

Revenant Esports’ Brawl Stars roster for 2024 is as follows:

● Ashmit “Sergeant Clash” Singh

● Takuya “Menmi” Kitano

● Kenji “Ken-G” Oda

● Karthikk “Kizuki” Adithiyha S: Analyst

Sergeant Clash is undoubtedly the most decorated Indian Brawl Stars esports player. The 19-year-old has been competing actively since 2020, making him an experienced veteran despite his young age. Over the years, he has won numerous Monthly Finals in the Brawl Stars Championship, but his most notable achievements came in 2023 with Revenant.

Throughout 2023, Revenant Esports placed first in four of the six Monthly Finals for the Brawl Stars Championship, securing a slot at the World Finals LCQ in Katowice, Poland. After another

impressive win here, the team made it to the prestigious 2023 World Finals, competing against the best of the world for a share of the $750,000 prize pool. However, the team could only manage a fifth to eighth-place finish.

Commenting on the new team Sergeant Clash said, “After an immensely successful 2023 season where we conquered the India region and even made it to the World Finals in Sweden, we are now aiming even higher. With our revamped lineup featuring the talented Menmi and Ken-G, I am confident that we have what it takes to make it to the Brawl Stars World Finals once again despite the tougher format which has decreased the overall number of slots. For now, we are working on increasing our communication and synergy as the 2024 Brawl Stars Championship kicks off.”

Sergeant Clash will be paired with Ken-G and Menmi, two Japanese players who have also been actively competing since 2021. Ken-G has some notable achievements, being a part of the ZETA DIVISION ONE roster previously, where he won the 2022 Mid-Season Invitational and finished second in the World Finals in the same year. Menmi, on the other hand, is a two-time winner of the East Asia Monthly Finals in 2023, previously playing for REJECT, one of the biggest esports orgs from Japan.

Furthermore, Kizuki is set to be the team’s analyst, having previously offered his services to some of the most notable names in competitive Brawl Stars esports including SK Gaming and Aphelion Esports.

Rohit Jagasia, the Founder and CEO of Revenant Esports, said, “For the 2024 esports season, Supercell has made some changes to the Brawl Stars ecosystem by merging the India region with the larger APAC region. As a result, it was imperative for us to scout talent from the entire region and we landed on Ken-G and Menmi, who along with Sergeant Clash perfectly complement each other. Both players are from Japan, and having competed in the East Asia region, which continues to be one of the toughest in Brawl Stars esports, bring a wealth of crucial experience which will help this team reach new heights.”

The Revenant Esports Brawl Stars roster will begin its journey in the 2024 Brawl Stars Championship this month with the APAC Monthly Qualifier. They will be competing throughout the year to make it to the 2024 World Finals, which will have a prize pool of up to $2 million.

Football Betting Business in Vietnam Mandates Bidding Process

The international football betting business project will be required to conduct a bidding process to select investors, according to a recently issued government decree. Decree 23/2024 issued by the Government outlines the necessity of conducting bidding processes to select investors in accordance with the Bidding Law.

As per this decree, investors must participate in a bidding process if they intend to operate international football betting activities in Vietnam. In addition, projects related to investment in horse and dog racing, including betting activities, are also subject to bidding when two or more investors express interest.

This regulation is reiterated in Decree 06, which addresses the business of betting on horse racing, dog racing and international football, issued in 2017. At that time, the government allowed a pilot business to operate international football betting through a bidding process.

As of now, no business has been granted permission to pilot such ventures. Last year, a representative of a lottery business stated in their development strategy until 2025 that they plan to launch international football betting activities in compliance with the law.

Towards the end of 2021, the Ministry of Finance proposed amendments to Decree 06, introducing new points such as permitting betting on European national football championships and allowing players to purchase betting tickets online.

During that period, the Ministry of Finance also submitted to the government proposed changes to two conditions for investors. First, investors must have a minimum capital investment of VND1 trillion ($40.5 million), with the ownership ratio of all foreign investors not exceeding 50%. Additionally, companies must commit to contributing to the state budget a minimum of 5% of betting revenue in cash (excluding taxes).

However, this new decree has yet to be issued, which poses a challenge to the regulators in selecting pilot businesses.

Every year, law enforcement agencies uncover and prosecute illegal football betting rings that bet billions of Vietnamese dong on football matches around the world. Advertisements for online betting websites with names such as FB88, Fi88, Bet88 and others, flood the internet.

The illegal football betting market in Vietnam is estimated to be worth tens of billions of USD a year, yet the state struggles to control the flow of money and collect taxes.

Many foreign investors have expressed interest in the international football betting business in Vietnam. Several countries around the world have legalised this form of betting.

Analysts suggest that to attract investors in the betting sector, the Government needs a stringent and appropriate regulatory framework. This would provide citizens with a legal rather than an illegal option for their pastimes. In turn, the state budget would benefit from tax and fee revenue from betting activities.
