Geekay Esports, the esports division of Geekay Group announced the signing of an Emirati Valorant team. The UAE-based team has already participated in a few tournaments such as Geekay Scouting Tournament, Emirates Esports Festival 2021, and Strike Arabia Championship.

The five-man team has been participating in tournaments since 2013. Geekay Esports aims to support the team logistically and financially, to overcome the difficulties that most MENA teams face when trying to enter the global stage and help them build a career in esports without worrying about the next paycheck. The team is made up of:

• Kasper – Mohamed Hussein Nawab
• Aimhunter – Khalid Mohamed Karamastaji
• Infestor – Sultan Maleki
• FR1 – Saif Alameri
• Dutch – Hamed Abdulrahman Mohammed Abdulla Kayed

Geekay Group has always been a part of the gaming scene in the region, as it operates 32 stores across the region, and distributes various international brands in the video game channel throughout the MENA region. The group is also known for supporting various events, tournaments, and launches.

The group also plans to host university and school-level tournaments across the UAE in partnership with various outlets in education to recruit players at the grassroots level, these tournaments will function as scouting tournaments and provide young athletes with the chance to compete at a higher level.

Additionally, these tournaments aim to educate the upcoming professional esports generation on balancing their time, highlighting the requirements and dedication needed to be a pro player, and breaking some nuances and stereotypes around the industry. Research shows that teams that focus their time on six daily hours of training with mental health breaks perform far better than those who crunch in more than six hours of training.
