Collaborations in the $512 Billion Sports Entertainment Sector Creates Synergies with EEIQ’s Educational Offerings

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio, February 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- EpicQuest Education Group International Limited (NASDAQ: EEIQ), (“EpicQuest Education”, “EpicQuest”, “EEIQ” or the “Company”), a provider of higher education for domestic and international students in the US, Canada and the UK, today announced a corporate strategy update as a result of it having recently established two subsidiaries that operate in the sports entertainment and the sports, kinesiology and fitness academics fields.

“We believe that the sports entertainment sector holds vast potential for EpicQuest to participate in on a global scale. Our new 40%-owned sports-related entertainment subsidiary was formed to organize sports entertainment projects which adds an entirely new and exciting dimension to the Company,” said Zhenyu Wu, Chief Financial Officer of EpicQuest Education.

“We expect that our previously announced soccer exhibition matches in China with the World Cup Argentina Men’s Soccer Team will generate substantial revenue for the Company while creating synergies with the new sports, kinesiology and fitness programming that will be offered by Davis University. The Company’s focus on our new sports-related vertical represents a new element in our strategic growth plan where we expect to be highly successful,” concluded CFO Zhenyu Wu.

As sports entertainment projects can entail enormous ticket sales, sponsorships, merchandizing, food and beverage sales, transmission rights, commercial rights, etc., the Company believes that its 40% owned sports-entertainment subsidiary has the potential to generate substantial revenue from even a single sporting event. As announced on January 18, 2024, the Company’s sports-related entertainment subsidiary entered into an agreement with the Argentine Football Association for the Argentina Men's National Soccer Team to play two exhibition matches in China from which the Company expects to derive substantial revenue.

According to, a global data and business intelligence platform, revenue associated with the global sports industry was expected to be $512 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow to $623 billion by 2027. As announced on December 11, 2023, the Company established a wholly-owned subsidiary, Gilmore Inv LLC to focus on kinesiology and recreation, and on January 18, 2024, it announced that it established a subsidiary, SouthGilmore LLC, which is 40% owned by the Company, to organize sports entertainment projects, many of which it anticipates will be large-scale in nature. These new entities represent a new strategic direction for the Company which it expects to further diversify its revenue stream and lead to higher corporate growth.
