In addition to the esports talents, EMERGE Esports also currently manages esports team Kingsmen, which currently competes in popular titles such as Mobile Legends Bang Bang (MLBB), Valorant and PUBG Mobile.

Interestingly, the Kingsmen Valorant team also features several Malaysian esports athletes, such as Suhail “mijo”, Kok Mun Hong “1van”, Muhd Hazeeq “Zeeq”, Leong “Justa”, Kenny “Castle” and Sirajul “Riza”.

The agency aims to boost the growth of the esports ecosystem in Singapore by providing aspiring and existing esports talents with the tools and opportunity to succeed in the industry; with further plans to expand its reach across the region.

To date, EMERGE Esports have also announced strategic partnerships with over many brands, including Redbull, gaming peripherals company SteelSeries and gaming chair manufacturer Royale Ergonomics, as well as non-gaming brands such as Embily, StashAway, Reubiks Academy and Singapore’s first home-grown fruit tea, Partea.

EMERGE Esports Chief Gaming Officer (CGO) Pang Xue Jie said:

“We are excited to be part of this journey which will pave the path for many youngsters and gaming enthusiasts to pursue a career in the esports industry.

We would like to establish an ecosystem that nurtures all budding talents in this field and not just the esports athletes.

Esports is competing closely with traditional sports, garnering millions in revenue each year.

Gaming has evolved beyond a hobby for many and we believe the launch has come at an opportune time.

Given its accessibility and rising popularity, it will not be a surprise if
esports surpasses traditional sports in revenue in near future.”
