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 constantly looking out for budding gamers who are keen to represent Red Sevens and Singapore in local and regional tournaments.
“Firstly, we are going to engage the Singapore paintball community by forming Esports interest groups. As training and participation build up, we will recruit talented players into the team to become competitive in Esports. We hope that one day, Red Sevens Esports will fly the Singapore flag high on the Esports stage similarly to when we first started paintball in Singapore. There is already an existing pool of very committed and dedicated players from the paintball community whom we can engage but we are not trying to re-invent the wheel but simply adding spice into the Esports space” – Ben Seow (Founder of Red Sevens)
