Australian esports platform Mogul announced that it has partnered with esports media company SG Esports to launch League of Legends competitions in New Zealand and Australia.
According to the release, SG Esports’ Summoners Society members will soon be able to compete in events on Mogul’s platform.
According to Mogul CMO Mark Warburton, the partnership between the Summoners’ Society and SG Esports allows Mogul to build an even deeper connection with teams and community groups in Australia and beyond to support grassroots and amateur tournaments.
The competition will incorporate SG Esports’ regional organization Summoners’ Society, which boasts about 11,000 members and is considered “Australia’s oldest and biggest League of Legends gamer community.”
Fans and members of the community will play competitive League of Legends tournaments, which will run entirely on a Summoners’ Society-branded hub on Mogul’s platform, for cash and other prizes.
“We have been looking for a way to add value to the esports community groups and teams we manage for some time, and now with Mogul, we’re able to set up tournaments for players and communities with ease,” said SG Esports CEO Sean Callanan.
He added that Summoners’ Society will now be able to better engage with its existing members and grow its member base of League of Legends players through regular competitive events and tournaments.
This new partnership is one of many for Mogul across multiple games and regions over the last three months including in North American Dota 2 with Team Secret, Magic: The Gathering in Australia and New Zealand, Europe and Southeast Asia with Alliance, and FIFA in the Middle East.
