UK-based team-finding service TEAMS.gg has partnered with esports production agency Promod Esports.
The deal sees TEAMS.gg support and sponsor Promod’s VALORANT Regional League (VRL) Northern Europe Polaris and VALORANT Regional Circuit (VRC) Beacon.
Promod Esports is the tournament organiser for Polaris and Beacon, two regional VALORANT competitions focused on the Northern Europe market. TEAMS.gg is a data-driven team-finding platform that allows players to find like-minded teammates on a similar skill level.
As a result of the deal, Promod has named TEAMS.gg as its official team-finder for VALORANT in Northern Europe.
As a sponsor of the recent VRL Polaris Finals and headline sponsor of this year’s ongoing VRC Beacon tournament circuit, TEAMS.gg says it will assist aspiring participants keen to compete for the top spot in circuit events like EPIC.LAN and Dreamhack.
TEAMS.gg’s partnership with Promod Esports officially kicked off with the recent Polaris Finals, which took place from July 1st-3rd. The partnership will extend to multiple events and tournaments taking place in the second half of 2022, in which players will be able to earn Beacon Points in a bid to qualify for the Beacon finals at the end of August.
James Duffield, CEO of TEAMS.gg, commented: “This is the perfect partnership for us. We’re excited to support players who want to take part in the Beacon circuit, helping them build new teams and sticking with those who progress to VRL Polaris or any future VALORANT tournaments.
“This is personal for all of us here at TEAMS.gg – throughout our entire adult lives, we’ve been playing in tournaments like EPIC.LAN and Dreamhack. Now, we’re able to actively support those grassroots tournaments, which is a dream for us.”
The team-finding platform has expanded from its initial service in CS:GO to now include VALORANT, Fortnite and most recently Apex Legends. TEAMS.gg is also a previous winner of Esports Insider’s investment pitch competition The Clutch, which is returning to physical format at ESI’s flagship Major event ESI London on September 5th-7th 2022.
