NGX Values

Passion

We’re doing what we love. We live for the competition and are not afraid to put in the hard work to continously exceed expectations.

Innovation

Our goal is to make our business sustainable an unique. This is only possible by adapting a mentality of constant growth and improvement and being pioneers in our industry to advance to a better future for everyone.

Nothing we are looking to accomplish is possible without the people we have on board for our journey. We believe in transparency being one of our biggest strengths and treat each other with respect, kindness and honesty.

Sportsmanship

We want to win. Every defeat has to be treated as a chance for us to learn and grow, while we stay humble when we raise the trophy. The motto is always fair play and respect towards our opponents, teammates and the fans.

FROM MENA TO
THE WORLD’S STAGE

Our players and staff are hailing from all around the world and various backgrounds. They combine their experiences to a remarkable journey on our mission to provide infrastructure and develop new talent in the esports industry.

One region that is a special focus of ours has to be MENA. With some of our players and staff hailing from the Middle East, we felt that people in the region were underserved when it comes to experiencing esports. We’re looking to change that and hope by providing the infrastructure and applying our experiences in esports to the business we conduct in the MENA region, we will be able to develop the next generation of local talent, that will be able to advance to the global stage and make the sport more popular and accessible in the MENA region.

MENA ACADEMY TEAM

With our HQ being based in Abu Dhabi and the story we have told so far, there is quite a unique opportunity for us to develop talent in the Middle East and support them for their next step onto the big stage. This gives us the unique opportunity to create a stronger bond for the international league to the MENA region and open moor doors for local talent.

As we’re building out esports further from our HQ in Abu Dhabi, we would love to field an academy team from the MENA region and hopefully through practice opportunities with our main team on the and other EMEA and APAC teams as well as through our bootcamp opportunities in EU and SEA, can develop more talent from the MENA region to be ready for one of the big international leagues.

PARTNERSHIPS

We‘re focussing on premium non- and endemic brands to be able to bring our partners maximum value. By integrating our partners in the most authentic way into our ecosystem and showing how they actively help us to improve our performance in business and competition, we‘re able to tell a unique story and build our brand out further together with our partners.

Our advantage is the possibility to connect premium brands to our global loyal fanbase.

Across all titles we‘re not engaging with any partner in the Alcohol or Betting category.
