The semi-professional network N3rd Street Gamers (NSG) announced a partnership with Spectra to attract corporate sponsors
N3rd Street Gamers is the network that hosts export competitions focused on emerging talents and semi-pro player tournaments.
According to the agreements, Spectra (integrated service provider specializing in sponsor management) will provide sponsorships for NSG’s export headquarters and competitions.
Spectra will handle sponsorship sales for NSG’s Localhost Arenas in Philadelphia and Denver, Chicago’s Ignite LAN Center and NSG brand competitions.
Founded in 2009, N3rd Street Gamers operates local area network (LAN) gaming centers and has since expanded from Philadelphia headquarters to several other major cities. The company runs hundreds of local export contests every year, focusing on amateur and semi-pro basic competition.
These events include the 10-city national championship series, which now includes Overwatch.
NSG’s efforts have attracted the attention of investors eager to reach young consumers. The brand previously received an investment from SeventySix Capital, a company led by former MLB star Ryan Howard and in June 2018, received an investment not disclosed by Comcast Spectacor.
