“The current African gaming and esports landscape are largely disjointed, with Northern, Southern, Central, Eastern and Western regions operating in Silos.
“Gamer’s vision is to build an aggregated and connected African esports industry, and Gamr X was built out of the need to encourage inter-country engagement and competition across Africa, resulting in collective growth of the industry.
“With this in mind, we are thrilled to be working with Sportpot Africa Limited and are looking forward to welcoming the best gamers Kenya has to offer,” Ade Jinadu, Head of Marketing at GAMR.
