Legacy Esports has partnered with leading esports platform Mogul to create a new generation of tournaments.
Mogul, which recently completed its AU$275,000 tournament series, is launching a first of its kind tournament model, where players can have a once in a lifetime opportunity and go head-to-head with professional esports players.
Players from Legacy Esports, owned by the Adelaide football Club, will spearhead this tournament model competing in the popular online video game Fortnite. Kicking off in the coming weeks, Legacy players will not only play on the world’s first fully automated tournament platform for cash prizes, but their fans and members of the public will be pitted against Legacy’s top Fortnite team with tens of thousands of dollars worth of Razer laptops on the line for the victors.
This partnership will be mutually beneficial for Legacy Esports and Mogul as they join forces to devise and orchestrate ongoing community engagements and charitable events, driving Mogul deeper into the esports scene as well as the wider sporting landscape.
Adelaide Football Club’s Chief Operating Officer, Nigel Smart, said:
“We’re extremely excited to partner with Mogul and look forward to working with the Mogul team to drive innovation, creativity and excitement around the Mogul platform.”
Mogul Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer, Jamie Skella, said:
“Mogul couldn’t be prouder to work together with the iconic Legacy Esports as a landmark partnership for the region. One of many forthcoming partnerships of this kind, it represents our ability to support the industry with market-leading tournament technology and have industry actors share in our success as we grow. This partnership model is truly win-win in nature – I’m excited about the role it will play as an economic accelerator for everyone involved.”
