As interest in games increases, so does interest in esports, with 1bn+ people playing competitive gaming titles globally.
Our history is unparalleled:
We’re one of the most successful esports brands of all time, with 16 years competing at the top. We have 100 staff, 37 pro gamers, and 6 global offices. We've won more tier 1 esports tournaments than any other team, and we’re the world's second most-watched team in 2020.
Today, we’re laser-focused on driving gaming performance:
In addition to revenues from esports, we deliver content and activations for brands like AMD, BMW, Gucci, Hi-Sense and Monster. Uniquely among tier 1 teams, we make award-winning performance equipment, sold directly to the consumer and through select retailers globally (+50% order growth YOY). These 3 revenue pillars mean diversified and defensible revenues. Each can scale significantly as esports matures.
We’ll use your investment to realise the next level of esports performance by funding our performance team, products, academies and facilities.
