"Gaming Academy is a necessary project for the esport ecosystem. I see a lot of young players coming onto the scene of major competitions with no baggage or training upstream, which is fundamental to help them to take a step forward and make the team move forward. Same with the more experienced and late-career players for whom reconversion is not always obvious. This will give them security for the future

"As a sports club, we have to be more forward-thinking and take care of our players. We do not have time to transmit of organize this skill, that’s why it was an obvious to get closer to Gaming Campus "says Fabien" Neo "Devide.
