It is no news that esports (competitive gaming) has come to Africa and is growing fast.
Despite being the last and new frontier of esports and a late bloomer compared to the western world, Africa has some interesting numbers in terms of gaming statistics.
For example gaming in Africa has generated revenue in hundreds of millions of dollars as far back as 2015, but all going to game developers and publishers.
Infrastructure has been a common challenge amongst esports stakeholders in the region and many have confirmed how solving such a challenge will improve the growth of esports exponentially.
In a quest to solve infrastructure issues, Nigeria’s esports startup, Gamr just announced their series funding.
Gamr has received an undisclosed funding to scale its operations further from Empawa, Africa premier platform for independent music artists and Adrenaline Gaming.
Gamr through its subscription service model will enable gamers to participate in tournaments and allow organizers reach players across Africa.
The platform will also create opportunities for talented gamers to advance from causal players to amateur and professional statuses.
