The world of esports is ever growing and organizations everywhere are partnering with brands that fall outside the gaming spectrum. One such organization is Blind Esports from South India with its roots originating from Kerala. Blind Esports has partnered with IQ Option, one of the world’s leading stock and crypto trading platform. This is the first esports organization to enter a long term partnership with a stock and crypto trading platform.
IQ Option has acknowledged Blind Esports’ achievements and share common believes and objectives. With this partnership, IQ Option has set foot in the Indian gaming ecosystem and will help Blind Esports reach new levels in terms of growth. IQ Option’s branding will also be added on Blind Esports jerseys and will be featured on their influencer’s content as well.
Blind Esports was formed in April of 2019 with a single PUBG Mobile roster that was created within Kerala and would represent the Malayali gaming community at the highest level. Today, the organization is steadily growing its presence in the Indian Esports scene and has over 16 influencers under their wing generating an average of over 30 million monthly views through YouTube alone. Arjun ‘Satan’ Suresh and Vishnu ‘Joker’ T.V Co-owners of Blind Esports along with Ananth ‘Bleed’ Padmanabhan COO of Blind Esports have strived to create a sustainable Esports organization that truly represents the passion of gaming.
After PUBGM’s ban, Blind Esports turned to CODM and Clash of Clans. While Blind has expanded into regions outside Kerala, they continue to stay true to their routes by doubling down on content creation within the region. The organization now aims to create a PAN Indian presence and has a well-planned roadmap for the years to come.
