Team Nigma once again came up with another big announcement this month. After setting up their HQ in Abu Dhabi under abudhabi Gaming and signing Igor "iLTW" Filatov to replace Aliwi "w33" Omar, Team Nigma once again surprised their fans with another big announcement this month by partnering up with Etihad airways.
Team Nigma will be the first esports team ever to be sponsored by a major airline and the Abu Dhabi based Etihad Airways will make sure the team and its support staff will arrive, relaxed, refreshed and on time for their packed global schedule.
Christoph Timm, Co-Founder of Team Nigma, said: “We are grateful that Etihad Airways committed to a long-term partnership especially during these testing times. Like us, Etihad believes in supporting and developing new upcoming talents from the region and see esports as a major industry for the region.
“The amount of support they have already shown us is admirable. This is just the beginning of our journey together, and we look forward to more unique activations in the future.”
Etihad is renowned for partnering with world-class sports teams and events, from Manchester City Football Club to the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. We see the value in sports-based sponsorships which unite and engage with communities, and we look forward to what the future holds with Team Nigma.
