The AFA said the partnership “consolidates its global leadership position and confirms its intention to continue strengthening its commercial activity internationally, attracting new markets and territories.”

Guga Gotsadze, SmartSoft managing partner, added: “This marks a historic moment for our company. We are delighted to be the first game provider in Europe to become a digital sponsor of the Argentina National Team and are confident that this collaboration will propel our company and our games to new horizons.”
