Jay Melamed, CEO of XP League, added: “Our partnership with Gameplan allows participants to continue their growth as players, while also being able to quantify that progress through the platform. Players will have opportunities to level up in the platform, and celebrate achievement milestones. I could not have dreamt up a platform better suited for delivering our best in class content and curriculum.”
Esports Insider says: XP League joining forces with Gameplan is an excellent way to provide young players with educational resources. In particular, it will enable players to effectively progress and participate in training programmes scheduled by coaches. With the management platform containing a range of features, it will be interesting to see how the league further utilises Gameplan to benefit those involved.
