North American esports organisation Team Envy, and its Overwatch League franchise Dallas Fuel, has entered a partnership with OP Live Dallas.
eGency Global, an esports production and talent management firm, announced the news ahead of the inaugural event in September. It will see a number of figures from the organisation make an appearance over the two days that the event will run.
Geoff Moore, President and COO of Team Envy stated: “As the only hometown esports team in Dallas, we’ll be looking for more and more opportunities to provide entertaining experiences to the local fan base in both the physical and digital realms. Signing on as a partner with OP Live Dallas is a great first step for us, as the Dallas Fuel prepare for season two in the Overwatch League and more and more of our competitive Team Envy teams become based here in DFW.”
Those who attend OP Live Dallas will be able to meet and interact with several figures from the Dallas-based organisation, including Dallas Fuel’s head coach Aaron “Aero” Atkins & general manager Mat “TazMo” Taylor, as well as Mike “Hastr0” Rufail, Owner & CEO of both Team Envy and Dallas Fuel. They will dish out autographs, coaching and educational sessions, and merchandise.
Chris Stone, CEO of eGency Global added: “We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Team Envy and the Dallas Fuel as partners for OP Live Dallas. Along with being top esports competitors, the organization’s and players’ dedication to philanthropy and promoting diversity is unmatched in the esports industry.”
The event will be hosted at the Irving Convention Center on September 22-23rd, and is a result of a collaboration with both eGency Global and SMU Guildhall – a video game development school.
Esports Insider says: While details are a tad scarce surround the event as of now, we’re sure there are plenty of Dallas Fuel fans who will be in attendance – with it being hosted in Dallas and all – so this seems like a clever partnership.
