Medvedev, an avid gamer, will be “advising the organisation on esports endeavours (partnerships, growing the fan base etc.) and will also share his experience in sports psychology with M80’s different teams”.

“As an avid gamer and competitor, joining M80 gives me the opportunity to blend my experience. ust as in tennis, success in esports demands mental resilience and dedication. Marco and the team have created one of the world’s most exciting esports brands, and I’m looking forward to contributing to the growth of the company and giving fans more ways to engage with M80.“
