The Rainbow Six Siege esports roster of MNM Gaming has publicly claimed that the British esports organisation has failed to meet its contractual obligations. 

The statement, shared on social media by the roster’s support staff and players, alleges that MNM Gaming owes over £200,000. This figure includes money owed to the individuals mentioned as well as other unidentified ex-players and staff.

Esports Insider has reached out to MNM Gaming for comment. This article will be updated if a comment is received. 

The Rainbow Six Siege roster, which competed at this year’s BLAST R6 Major Copenhagen, has decided to stop representing MNM Gaming and will be looking for a new organisation.

An excerpt of the statement reads: “MNM Gaming owes current players and support staff, as well as ex-player and former staff members, a staggering total of over £200,000. What is most disheartening is the multiple promises that have been broken by MNM Gaming.

“We’ve been repeatedly assured of payments that never materialised, and deadlines set by the organisation have constantly gone unmet. This continuous cycle of unfulfilled commitments has strained our trust but has also taken a toll on our financial and mental well-being over the last several months.”

The statement also alleges that MNM Gaming was utilising the roster’s prize pool money to partially cover salaries. 

Founded in 2014, MNM Gaming is a longstanding organisation within the UK esports scene. One of MNM Gaming’s co-Founders, Daniel ‘Javelin’ Chung, is the current Chair of the UK Esports Team Committee (UKETC).

In 2022 the organisation departed the NLC, one of League of Legends’ European Regional Leagues, leaving MNM Gaming with just its Rainbow Six Siege roster. 

With the departure of its roster, MNM Gaming will have no active esports divisions, according to its website. Moreover, the organisation’s X account has been inactive since September 26th. 

MNM Gaming’s CEO, Kalvin ‘KalKal’ Chung, was present at ESI London, Esports Insider’s esports business conference, as a panellist.
