Global Esports Talent Agency Rumble Gaming Signs Legendary Gaming Organization OG Esports

TORONTO, June 25, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Rumble Gaming is excited to announce the signing of OG Esports, one of the most popular and successful esports organizations in history. The partnership combines Rumble Gaming's expertise in esports talent management, consulting services, and team sponsorships with OG's world-class roster of superstar esports competitors, including N0tail, Topson, and Suma1L.

"OG is one of the most accomplished competitive esports organizations in the history of gaming," said Evan Kubes, President of Rumble Gaming. "OG is a premium brand with global appeal, and we're excited to help them further expand their reach."

OG Esports is legendary in the gaming industry. The team began to leave its mark on Dota 2 history during the Frankfurt Major, winning the first ever Valve-sponsored major. After winning the 2016 Manila Major, the 2016 Boston Major, and the 2017 Kiev Major, OG became the first team in Dota 2 to win four Dota major championships. They then went on to become two-time world champions, winning back-to-back Dota 2 titles and record-breaking prize pools at The International in 2018 and 2019. Following their success with Dota 2, the organization has since expanded into Counterstrike: Global Offensive.

Outside of the esports arena, OG was recently spotlighted in Against the Odds, a powerful documentary on their path to victory at the 2018 International tournament. They were also showcased in several installments of True Sight, the Valve documentary series that gives fans a deeper look at both the on-camera and behind the scenes action at The International. While based in Europe, OG is a global brand, with significant fan bases all over the world.

"I am thrilled to be working with Rumble Gaming and to have them in our corner helping us grow," said J.M.R. Luna, CEO of OG Esports. "They are a great company, and we look forward to working with them."

"Our partnership with Rumble Gaming is truly a milestone for OG's development in North America," added Xavier Oswald, Chief Revenue Officer and Co-Owner of OG Esports. "We have a lot of fans in the US and Rumble Gaming is the perfect partner to engage brands with our unique DNA and performance-driven approach."
