Esports player representation agency Prodigy Agency has secured a partnership with Adamas Esports, a performance startup focused on esports players and organisations.
Adamas will provide performance and wellness services for Prodigy’s clientele on a daily basis. Moreover, the startup will offer on-site support at live events, as well as support Prodigy’s academy programme, The Prodigies.
Adamas Esports is a company specialising in esports performance, health and wellbeing of players, coaches and teams. The company works with a number of esports teams and companies, including INTZ, Houston Outlaws, TSM FTX, Version 1 and others.
In June 2022, the company acquired competitor Gscience, with whom Prodigy already had a partnership. In the acquisition announcement, the decision was highlighted as part of Adamas’ ‘aggressive expansion’ into the European market.
This agreement is a natural extension of Prodigy’s existing relationship with Gscience. According to both parties, Adamas is set to provide ’emotional regulation training’, as well as mindfulness exercises and physical training for players on the Prodigy roster.
Prodigy’s clientele includes notable esports players such as ZywOo, TenZ, Inspired and ScreaM. Both companies noted that mental health and well-being are of extreme importance to both companies and that this cooperation brings this message forward.
Jérôme Coupez, Founder and CEO of Prodigy Agency, commented: “The health and performance of our players is key to what we do at Prodigy, and we are excited to partner with global leaders Adamas Esports to provide our players with world-class day-to-day support as well as in-tournament support.”
Earlier this year Prodigy announced the first official season of its ‘The Prodigies’ CS:GO academy programme. The initiative has garnered support from the likes of Razer, CS.MONEY, Refrag.gg and Scope.gg.
The selected players receive wages, advice, access to coaching and training facilities, as well as exposure that helps them find a team after the programme.
