Joining the Valorant community is an ideal move for the guild and we look forward to expanding into new exciting and emerging sports spaces, “said Carlton Curtis, chairman of the sports group.
Guild Esports PLC (LON: GILD) revealed the signing of its newest, top team that will compete in Valorant, a shooting game launched by Riot Games in June.
Sure Lagmari “Jacin”, Malcolm Rench “Boncar”, Leo Jannesson “Leo”, William Sundin “Draken” and Philip Gaufin “Goff” left the successful Swedish “Team Bonk”.
You will join guild teams that compete against each other in the Rocket League and FIFA.
“Joining the Valorant community is an ideal step for the guild and we look forward to expanding into new exciting and emerging sports fields,” said Carlton Curtis, chairman of the sports group.
“Valorant is destined to become a major export item with a global reach and a large fan base, and has the prestige developed by world-class publisher Riot Games.”
“With this signature, the Guild has established itself as a multidisciplinary export business and we look forward to sending players into new games as we continue to improve and invest in our business using the military crates we collected during our IPO.”
The IPO rewards the company, which has former England captain David Beckham as a brand ambassador and shareholder, more than £ 41 million and generates £ 20 million to be invested in new signatures like Bonk.
With strong support from Manchester United and the great Beckham from Real Madrid, the Guild is bringing talented talents to become the best academic models in the Premier League.
Fergus Purcell, known for his work with the Palace Skate and Streetwear brands, was tasked with developing the company’s branding.
Within 12 months of traveling, the company tried to win over sponsorships, a loyal fan base and its own line of products.
On Monday, the Guild announced its first major commercial deal since going public, a £ 3.6 million sponsored deal with an unnamed European fintech company that caters to esports fans.
