London-based talent agency Digital Sports MGMT has launched an esports division to house three FIFA competitors that it has signed exclusive agreements with: Akima “Fully” Byron, Anthony “Guigsey” McGuigan, and Christopher “TheeBullock” Bullock.
These three players have just joined the Dream Team Gaming roster, which recently partnered with Reason Gaming to enter the fourth season of the Gfinity Elite Series.
As part of this agreement, the players will create content that will offer tips & advice to FIFA 19 players and will give a behind-the-scenes look at the life of professional players.
Rob Wadsworth, Co-founder and Director of Digital Sports MGMT said: “It’s an exciting time for DSM and the partnership with News UK was the ideal platform for us to announce our arrival on FIFA 19 competitive gaming scene. Having established ourselves as the go-to agency for FIFA content creators, it’s the perfect time to expand into esports which is a sector that continues to see double-digit growth year on year.”
Tom Henderson, Co-founder and Director of Digital Sports MGMT also commented: “We are really excited to expand this part of our business and we can’t wait to bring all of our experience and knowledge to the fore to help these three young stars reach the next level in FIFA Esports”.
Digital Sports MGMT also represents presenters such as Richard & Brandon, Kyle Walker, John Pritchard, and Mavric & Wolfy.
Talal Musa, Manager at Dream Team Gaming added: “DSM were the perfect company to work with when creating our FIFA 19 team. Their players are of the highest calibre and I look forward to managing them when the Gfinity Elite Series starts this Friday.”
Esports Insider says: As esports grows, so do the people that contribute to the industry as a whole – so talent will have more and more call for professional management to make the most of the opportunities available. As long as agencies such as Digital Sports MGMT have good intentions then these agreements seem like good moves.
