Envy Gaming, which owns the global Team Envy esports franchise and the Dallas Fuel team in the Overwatch League, has secured a sponsorship with leading gaming retailer GameStop.

Geoff Moore, president and chief operating officer of Envy Gaming, said: “Esports as a global sport and the accessibility of video games have the potential to positively impact billions of people through shared experiences, content and more.

“Having a partner in GameStop that makes sharing a passion for gaming a priority is the perfect way for Envy and the Dallas Fuel to connect with our fans in our home market in Texas and globally.”

Dallas Fuel head coach Aero and assistant coach Jayne will participate in live clinics at local GameStop locations as part of the partnership.
