What will this partnership consist of?
As stated in their press release above, the two esports organisations are advancing their development when it comes to creating local, as well as international online tournaments. They will also pair up when it comes to private LAN parties and in-person team-building events, but with the current health situation, that part of the deal will have to wait.
“Our collaboration with Velocity Esports Racing puts us in the perfect position to enter into the international sim-racing scene. With our combined pool of resources, skills and expertise in the field of esports, coupled with the high level of professionalism and surgical precision that Velocity Esports Racing bring to the table, we are confident that we can offer a product that would not only compliment the current ecosystem but raise the bar in terms of driver experience and audience engagement.”
