Challengermode will be the tournament platform of choice for Encom Esports City League.
Growing grassroots esports communities
Encom, who are the organizers and license-holders of Dreamhack in Spain, have announced that they will be using Challengermode as the tournament platform for their upcoming Esports City League, a new competitive league aiming to connect Spanish cities through esports.
The Esports City League will see players from all over Spain compete in titles like CS:GO, Fortnite, Rocket League and Clash Royale. Amateur gaming communities across the country will be able to connect through the League.
The League’s finals will be played at Dreamhack Valencia, and Challengermode will increase their efforts to expand their capability of supporting offline events. Encom has been organizing Dreamhack in Spain for the last 10 years, and their experience will help grow grassroots esports communities in the region.
Using technology to make esports accessible
Speaking about the partnership, Encom CEO Arturo Castelló stated that they were very happy to once again be partnering with Challengermode for the launch of the Esports City League. As both partners share the same passion for gaming and developing the amateur esports community, they are confident Challengermode’s technology will help Encom deliver an excellent experience to Esports City League players.
“Over the last four years we’ve been able to help grow the Dreamhack Spain community and help nurture the competitive area with Encom and we are happy to be able to continue doing so as we continue to grow our partnership. Their newly announced Esports City League exemplifies what we as Challengermode want to achieve by making esports accessible to all, from local heroes to (inter)national legends.”Philip Hübner, Chief Business Development Officer, Challengermode
Challengermode have been working on supporting grassroots esports communities: earlier this year they announced a partnership with competitive video game series Super Girl Gamer Pro to elevate women in gaming and esports. With Spanish-speaking communities receiving support from the esports industry lately, this partnership will serve a similar purpose in strengthening amateur esports communities across Spain.
