Québec also has a lot of talented young players and the new organization, Montréal Esports, wants to support and help them to push themselves further and become future esports champions. The project will be backed by a Quebec-born celebrity, well known in the traditional world of sports. He will bring his experience and knowledge to the project and will be present Saturday on the stage of DreamHack Montreal.

Through its CEO Paul Sen, Montréal Esports will present Saturday the three sides of the new project :

– The creation of a pro team, the Grizzlys, which will be a multi-gaming team and will take under its wings the best players of the province.
– A player’s agency, to represent, protect talents and take charge of their development, managing of their contracts, sponsors, and marketing.
– A new online platform to create esports related content, with ultimate goal being to broadcast esports only programs on a 24/7 basis.

The reveal will take place in between 4pm and 5:30pm this Saturday, during DreamHack Montréal. Paul Sen and his team will be available to answer any of your questions during the afternoon.
