Excel Esports, Britain’s top esports organisation, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with leading games and esports analytics firm Newzoo.

The partnership will see the sharing of intelligence and insights which will enable both Excel Esports and Newzoo to understand the different aspects of esports in various markets, helping solidify the team’s growth.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Excel Esports. Born as a passion project of Kieran and Joel Holmes-Darby, it’s been great to see Excel’s ascendancy over the past year into a leading light in both British and European esports,” said Remer Rietkerk, Newzoo’s Head of Esports. “Their model of having a deep local market identity—as well as a strong regional presence—is a fresh approach to building an esports organization, and we look forward to working with them to continue growing the scene both regionally and globally. Importantly, and as always, our partnerships are fundamental to our continuous effort to improve accuracy in reporting.”

With their recent hire of CCO Robin McCammon from iconic sportswear brand adidas and a ground-breaking partnership with British telecoms giant BT, the organisation sits among the leaders of the esports industry.  Excel’s partnership with Newzoo will enable Excel to present a data environment which will enable all their partners’ insights into the growing esports market.

“Excel Esports’ strategic decision-making has always been rooted in our deep understanding of the esports industry. Our partnership with Newzoo will enable us to continue to field our data-driven approach to building and growing our communities, not only in the UK but also around the world. Understanding and analysing where the esports industry is heading is key in recognising our global vision. ” said Robin McCammon, CCO, Excel Esports
