Valhallan‘s latest acquisition of the United Federation of Esports Athletes (UFEA) league aims to add value to school esports programs, franchise-owned esports teams, and other programs such as participating LAN centers.
The UFEA is a youth esports league designed for high school students that encourages camaraderie among players and further opportunities in the esports industry. This latest deal along with the recent acquisition of the North American Esports League (NAEL) further establishes Valhallan as a leader in youth esports, bringing its exclusive training program and arenas together with high-profile tournaments for all players aged seven to 18 years old.
“The acquisition of the UFEA and our global league expansion plans are exciting opportunities for Valhallan, our franchise owners, our players, and their families, and the entire esports industry,” said Matt Phillips, brand president of Valhallan.
All esports programs and teams are invited to join the UFEA and NAEL for the upcoming fall season. After that, the UFEA will be rolled up to the North American Esports League moving forward.
“We at the United Federation of Esports Athletes are thrilled to join Valhallan and the likes of the North American Esports League to help actualize the reality of esports as a career to students,” said Christopher Baarstad, UFEA league director. “With Valhallan, we are excited to offer more than just a gaming platform. We can teach our players different aspects of the esports world, including team management and marketing.”
