Esports MX LATAM Fund, a group of investors based in Mexico, has invested in Pittsburgh Knights and partnered to jointly set up an affiliated esports team in Mexico.
With the investment and operating partnership from the Esports MX LATAM Fund and its investors, the Knights will continue to focus on building a globally recognised gaming powerhouse and become initiators in Latin American esports.
“We are pleased to work with the Pittsburgh Knights as their partners, alongside the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have one of the top recognized American football brands in Mexico, and Wiz Khalifa, a globally recognized creative artist,” Mark Alazaraki, CEO of Alazraki Networks and partner of Esports MX LATAM Fund, said.
“The Knights have proven that they can grow and scale a professional esports organization working with established industry partners and a professional sports organization with much success that will be attractive to our investors who are exploring opportunities to invest in the Mexican esports scene,” Mark Alazaraki added.
“There is a strong strategic alignment with the Esports MX LATAM Fund’s vision and our investment group’s plans. Partnering with Han and his investment partners in Mexico is another great step for the Knights as we grow our global footprint. We see the same dedication, loyalty, and zeal for sports there that we do in Pittsburgh. Mexico has a lot to offer in terms of talent and logistics that make this venture an ideal opportunity to build something special for both Mexican and global esports,” Knight’s President James O’Connor said.
