This role involves identifying, nurturing, and organising esports athletes who embody the spirit of competitive gaming excellence on the international stage, ensuring their participation in diverse and prestigious esports competitions worldwide.
Respected figures in British esports, including Mark Weller, Ryan Hart, and TeaGuvnor, have played crucial roles in selecting and managing the talent.
