Yakkr, a new UK-based platform that lets fans play online games with their favorite esports teams, influencers, and celebrities, has secured six figures in funding. The company is currently in the pre-revenue stage and the funding will be used to fund the creation of the business and the Yakkr platform.
“Although it is unlikely you would ever get the chance to play football with Messi, people may like to play a game against him on FIFA and pay for the experience,” said Marcus Rowley, Co-Founder of Yakkr. “With the growth in demand for digital experiences since the start of the pandemic, fans want to engage with their favorite celebrities, influencers, and gamers. Yakkr allows this to happen. The creator schedules their availability along with the game they are playing and the price per slot; the fan purchases a space in the session they want to join and then when the time comes, they jump into a Yakkr session and it’s game on.”
The plan is to release Yakkr in Spring 2022 with the core functionalities available for users, and more to follow in the future.
