The Indian Gaming and Esports community is in for a treat as two of the country’s premier gaming organizations, S8UL and Global Esports, have entered into a strategic partnership to foster the growth of the Valorant Ecosystem. With a shared aim of scaling new heights for Valorant in India, the organizations aim to create opportunities for the rising players and increase the game’s footprint in the country.
Combined PC Gaming, Esports, and Content Expertise S8UL and Global Esports bring a wealth of experience to the table, leveraging the success of both organizations. S8UL, recipient of the “Content Group of the Year” award at the Esports Awards 2022, boasts of the largest fan following in the region and a legacy of multiple championships in competitive esports titles. Meanwhile, Global Esports, India’s longest-standing Esports Organization, is a force to be reckoned with, with successful rosters in popular games and several championships in PC and Mobile games.
Leveraging Success for the Benefit of the Industry The partnership will leverage the success of Global Esports, who has already secured a partnered seat in the prestigious International League, and the legacy of S8UL, the leading esports organization in the region. With both organizations continuing to grow and thrive, they will seek out more avenues to grow this partnership and bring benefits not just to the two organizations, but to the entire esports and gaming industry in India.
Scaling New Heights for Valorant in India S8UL and Global Esports aim to capitalize on the strengths of both organizations and pave the way for the budding Valorant players. With the Indian Gaming Industry no longer dominated by a single title, different games are starting to gain popularity in the country. “With this collaboration, our shared aim is to scale new heights, especially for Valorant in India, and bring our teams and content under one umbrella,” says Lokesh Jain aka Goldy, Co-Founder of S8UL.
Bringing Authentic and Memorable Esports Experiences Global Esports, being the only South Asian team selected for the International VALORANT franchise league, brings a wealth of experience to the partnership. “We are thrilled to join forces with S8UL and give our audiences authentic and memorable esports experiences,” says Dr. Rushindra Sinha, CEO of Global Esports.
S8UL and Global Esports’ strategic partnership marks a new chapter for the Indian Gaming and Esports community. With their combined PC Gaming, Esports, and content expertise, the organizations aim to create opportunities for the rising Valorant players and increase the game’s footprint in India. The International VALORANT franchise league will commence on 13th February 2023 with the opening event VCT LOCK//IN Sao Paulo, Brazil.
