MILAN – Inter’s expansion into the world of eSports continued today as the Nerazzurri unveiled the brand-new Inter eSports team – which will compete in FIFA21 competitions – with a video on its social media channels.
Having already signed a partnership with Electronic Arts (EA) and participated in FIFA events ahead of the start of the EA Global Series, Inter eSports are now ready to compete in the top FIFA21 competition. The team has a roster of world-class gamers from four different countries: Pedro “InterPResende97” Resende from Brazil, Levy “Inter Levy” Frederique from the Netherlands, Nicolas “Inter NLaos_X” Velasco from Colombia and Manoel “Inter MNeto77” Neto from Italy. Inter eSports will represent the Nerazzurri in all the main EA Global Series tournaments in Europa and South America for the FIFA 21 season.
The creation of the new Inter eSports team was made possible thanks to the collaboration of Bundled, a leading international eSports agency. Bundled will support the team across content creation, performance and player management and events organisation, with the partnership between Bundled and Inter set to be further expanded in the coming months with a range of events linked to the world of eSports.
“The creation of the new Inter eSports team with the help of a leading industry player like Bundled represents another step forward for our club in the world of eSports,” said FC Internazionale Corporate CEO Alessandro Antonello. “Our new eSports team, with its global stars, will enable us to further develop the Inter brand around the world, engaging with the younger generations and indeed all lovers of real and virtual football.”
“We’re honoured to be working with one of the most influential and iconic football clubs of all time,” said Bundled Managing Director Melvyn Wolthers. “Our aim is to support Inter eSports and establish the team within the world of FIFA eSports by engaging with its global community.”
The new Inter eSports players will make their debut in the FIFA 21 Global Series, which is set to begin at the end of November. Fans will be able to keep tabs on the performances and results of the new Inter eSports team on Inter’s Twitter account and on inter.it. Exclusive content focusing on the team will also be posted on the other Inter media platforms, especially TikTok.
