We are advocates of the fact that the players are the assets of our business. Their success is directly related to our success. We want to act as a springboard for the players to grow in their own right as recognized professional athletes both locally and abroad.
Our medium to long-term vision is to bring gaming and esports to a wider audience, especially to the youth of South Africa. We want to build a gaming organisation with purpose; to make a change in society and influence the lives and career paths of the youth toward gaming and esports.
