The United States Esports Academy (USEA) has agreed to a strategic partnership with Challenger Sports, in a deal that will see both sides support the development of esports in America.

“We are delighted to partner with Challenger Sports as an esteemed and well-respected company that has been so successful for over thirty years in North America,” said Johan Van Breda, the CEO of USEA. “Our philosophies and values are very much aligned as was undoubtedly clear from the first discussions.

USEA has a unique approach to esports coaching by combining factors of traditional LTAD [long-term athlete development] coaching philosophies with modern esports coaching techniques. The United States Esports Academy will align with challenger’s nationwide sales and marketing to ensure communities, schools, and universities can get the necessary support and services.”
