SK Gaming based out of Germany has signed their most recent partnership deal! Motorola will be the smartphone partner of the organization for the next year and a half! The goal behind this partnership is not only for simple brand awareness but to support the mobile games teams as they will be competing in various mobile esports such as Riot Games’ League of Legends: Wild Rift, Brawl Stars, and Clash Royale influencer based events as well!
An unknown SK Gaming member spoke on something that caught my attention! It is something that everyone in the esports industry has noticed but simply accepted and moved on. The spokesperson stated that “When SK Gaming started, esports was entirely focused on computers. However, nowadays mobile gaming is gaining further and further importance in the professional scene”. This was only part of the discussion as they continued into the topic of their mobile game teams. This caught me off guard because it is simply something that is evolving in the industry and I have simply taken it for granted and never really given it the thought it should have!
SK Gaming was founded in 1997 and evolved from a small group of close friends to a VERY successful esports business. Through the years they have had success in various games and leagues ranging from CSGO, Quake, FIFA, Warcraft, and several others!
