Manchester United Defender Harry Maguire was recently named an ambassador of Semper Fortis Esports. In his role, Maguire will work to expand Semper Fortis’ esports brand into the world of traditional sports.
The exact financial details of the deal are not known. However, it is being reported that Maguire will be paid through warrants that will allow him to purchase shares of stock in Semper Fortis Esports after a one-year waiting period.
“When I’m not on the pitch and training one of my favorite ways to relax is playing online against teammates and friends. It has been a great way to pass the time, particularly in lockdown,” Maguire said. “When I was approached by Semper Fortis to become one of its ambassadors I was really intrigued about what they are looking to achieve in gaming and esports. As an athlete, I understand the pressures of a competitive environment and I am excited to share my experience of competing in the world’s biggest leagues with Semper Fortis. We already have lots of exciting projects in the pipeline for this year, so watch this space.”
Harry Maguire is a 28-year-old professional soccer player from Sheffield, England. He has played for five different clubs during his 11-year career and has been a member of the English National team since 2017.
