The CEO and co-founder of True Gamers, Anton Vasilenko, said that True Gamers conducted a comprehensive market analysis of the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region’s eSports landscape and the global eSports industry’s growth trajectory before eSports Island development. According to Anton, this in-depth analysis gives them the confidence that the proposed business model will be instrumental in bringing eSports Island to life.”
