Esports AI coaching platform Omnic.ai has announced a partnership with UK-based social enterprise company Esports Youth Club.
The deal will focus on improving the Youth Club’s Esports Academy programme in London by giving students access to Omnic’s AI training tools in several games.
Omnic.ai is the company behind Forge, an esports training tool that uses AI to analyse matches in Fortnite and VALORANT and provide players with information on where to improve and how. According to Omnic, Forge can help professionals and amateurs alike and give them exact information on how to get better at games.
The company has recently partnered with Belong Gaming, allowing its venues to use the training software for their customers. Omnic has now expanded its roster of partnerships to Esports Youth Club, a non-profit that offers free gaming sessions, esports tournaments and training programmes in London.
The two companies will work together to help students of the Esports Youth Club Esports Academy programme learn about areas of improvement by allowing them access to the Forge tool. The academy, created with Changing Lives Lambeth, will provide 40 esports training sessions for young people from the Lambeth area of London.
Omnic has recently partnered with another student-focused project, the esports department of Maryville University in the United States. The company works with the university to also provide access to its tools, and also collaborates with esports brands such as NRG Esports and San Francisco Shock.
Shaun Meredith, Co-Founder and CEO of Omnic.ai, said: “We are delighted to join forces with Esports Youth Club to provide the next generation of gaming enthusiasts with the tools they need to succeed. Our AI-powered coaching insights will help young gamers sharpen their skills, strategise effectively and reach their development goals. “
