Spurs invest in Austin gaming company to ‘dominate the world of mobile esports’ – mySA

Spurs Sports and Entertainment has made a “strategic investment” into a mobile gaming esports company in Austin. 

Tribe Gaming’s investors group said Spurs’ minority investment opens up opportunities for cross-content collaborations, marketing opportunities and “shared strategic expertise,” the company announced Tuesday. 

What means exactly remains to be seen. Tribe Gaming founder and CEO Patrick Carney says in video posted to Twitter that more announcements will come in the coming weeks, but the investment will help “dominate the world of mobile eSports.”

“This relationship is not a one-off transaction,” Carney says in the video. 

Tribe Gaming was founded in 2017. The company currently features 18 of the top mobile gaming content creators and seven championship-caliber competitive esports teams. Its biggest competitive mobile game is Brawl Stars, a multiplayer online battle arena game where players compete against rival teams to achieve different objectives.
