MAD Lions are currently competing in the 2021 LEC Spring Split Playoffs after finishing third in the regular season. Meanwhile, MAD Lions Madrid, the team’s academy roster, placed 7th in the SuperLiga 2021 Spring Season.
Esports Insider says: In 2021, OverActive Media has looked at bolstering its esports entities, whether that be through the development of a new 7,000 seat arena for its Call of Duty and Overwatch franchise, or securing a range of partnerships. MAD Lions’ deal with GLS Spain is a perfect example of how its European esports brand has continued to develop at a regional level whilst also expanding its appeal globally.
