Denver, CO, January 20, 2020 – Rebel Esports (RBL Nutrition LLC), a leader in the amateur esports community, is pleased to announce that it has agreed to acquire premium esports organization Aspire Esports and it’s extensive portfolio of talent. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of February 2020.
Since launching in 2018, Aspire has recognized that all organizations are not created equally and has aimed to change the foundation of esports and set a new landscape for amateur organizations within the esports landscape. Known for its run during the 2019 Call of Duty season Aspire has taken top placements at multiple Open Bracket events, culminating with a top placement at the 2019 Call of Duty Championship.
Recently, Aspire Esports was able to create a merger with Sage Esports, announcing a power move in the industry combining two of the biggest names in the amateur Call of Duty scene. The merger has separated Aspire from other organizations and made them a stand-out within the amateur community. In comparison to other organization Aspire has held a massive focus on the local arena within esports and that has set them apart from other organizations and created much debate within the community.
“We are thrilled to greatly expand our portfolio of industry-leading organizations and combine the talent within Rebel Esports with the talent within Aspire Esports to ensure the changes across the landscape continue in a positive manner,” said Aaron Nichols, Co-Founder and CEO of Rebel Esports. “Aspire, and with association Sage, leads the amateur Call of Duty arena and are a key ingredient to maintaining a healthy place within the amateur esports community. Aspire will make an excellent and championship winning addition to our ever-growing lineup.”
Aspire Esports will remain a separate brand within the Rebel Esports family and will continue to operate as it operated previously. All existing Aspire contracts, staff, streamers, content creators and support will be unaffected by the merger and will continue to be handled by the Aspire Esports staff.
