Esports organisation Echo Fox have announced their expansion into mobile esports, picking up a Vainglory team.
The organisation already has played signed across League of Legends, CS:GO, Call of Duty, H1Z1, Gears of War and a plethora of fighting games but this serves as their first move into the mobile market.
Taking to their website to announce the news, owner Rick Fox said: “Vainglory caught our attention due to its explosive growth and Super Evil Megacorp’s dedication to building a thriving competitive ecosystem. The players that we’ve signed have already shown their talents and we are proud to be leading the charge in mobile esports.”
The three players signed were Mico ‘MICSHE’ Dedictoria, Nick ‘CullTheMeek’ Verolla and Paul ‘LoneDelphi’ Davis, with Ben ‘FooJee’ Watley joining the team as a coach. Two of the three players are world champions in their own right and they’ve added the first full-time coach in Vainglory.
Esports Insider says: A big move from an organisation that is constantly busy in the space. To add a full-time coach as well as a squad is a hefty investment for Echo Fox but it’ll be interesting to see if it ignites further interest in the space.
