We expect our worldwide distribution network to continue to grow”, Juan Pablo Reynal, CEO & Founder of the Women’s Cup, stated. Moreover, Brad Cummings, Founder & CEO, EQL Games, added: "As an American company with growing interest in international league licenses, there are few opportunities in the U.S. to meet with these leagues.
