Team Empire continues to move forward every day. We reach new heights, develop squads, expand our fan base. We have made a huge effort to keep up with the rapid development of e-sports.

The sponsorship news comes on the heels of recent success for the team. Team Empire has won the MLG Pro League Championship and StarLadder Season XI.
