With the ever rising of Esports worldwide, it will be difficult to turn a deaf ear to its popularity and rapid expansion. With aims of expanding the Red Sevens brand beyond to just paintball sport, an idea was mooted in the early of 2018 to expand Red Sevens into a "Super Club" model involving all sports types.
With an existing pool of gaming talents in the paintball industry, forming an Esports team under the Red Sevens wing seems evidently inevitable and achievable.
As a community based project, the Red Sevens Esports Team aim to reach out and engage under privilege teenagers by using gaming to direct them through social and community support and create a platform for both casual and competitive players to come together to enjoy Esports. Red Sevens Esports will venture into the Esports space with our expertise in team management and content creation in hoping to fill the eco-system for Esports in Singapore.
We are looking for budding gamers who are keen to represent Red Sevens and Singapore in local and regional tournaments.
"We are firstly going to engage the Singapore paintball community by forming Esports interest groups. As the desire for training and participation start to get stronger, we will recruit talented players into the team if they wish to stay current and competitive in Esports. We hope that one day, Red Sevens Esports will fly the Singapore flag on the Esports stage just the same as when we first started to develop paintball in Singapore. There is already an existing pool of very committed and dedicated players from the paintball community who we can engage but we are not trying to re-inventing the wheel but simply adding spice into the Esports space" - Ben Seow (Founder of Red Sevens)
