European esports organisation GAIMIN Gladiators has announced a partnership with data analytics company Shikenso Analytics.
As a result of the deal, the analytics firm will provide the organisation with insights into its digital inventory in addition to evaluating existing brand partnerships.
Founded in 2022 following a takeover of Team Tickles, GAIMIN Gladiators fields a number of rosters across a range of titles. This notably includes Dota 2, where its team currently sits in seventh place in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) rankings. In addition to Dota 2, the organisation competes in CS:GO, Rocket League and Rainbow Six Siege.
The collaboration with Shikenso Analytics marks the third partnership for the organisation. It joins gaming platform and title sponsor Gaimin.gg and PC builder Stoneforged on its roster.
2022 continues to see the analytics firm enter numerous partnerships with organisations and tournament organisers. In the first half of the year, Shikenso Analytics has entered and expanded deals with ReKTGlobal, PGL, BLAST Premier and EXCEL ESPORTS.
Most recently, the company secured a deal with Spanish organisation KOI to monitor the performance of the organisation’s partnership portfolio using its AI solution.
Nick Cuccovillo, President and Co-founder of GAIMIN Gladiators, spoke on the deal: “Following the formation of GAIMIN Gladiators and the renaming of Team Tickles, we started to look for an organisation who could provide us with data insight and analytics we required.
“Shikenso demonstrated they could provide both the breadth and depth in data analytics we required and we didn’t hesitate in forming a partnership with them. We look forward to creating a strong relationship and utilising the Shikenso data and analysis across our output media and within our team’s gaming preparations.”
