Las Vegas, NV — March 27, 2018: Esports agency, Number29 announces today a strategic partnership with start-up Play Your Game Collective, operators of Esports Camp to assist in the marketing, branding and future development of the company and its programs.

As the popularity of esports continues to grow, and cement itself within mainstream culture, more and more of today’s youth envision a future as a working professional with the Esports industry. Over 250 million people worldwide consume esports as a form of entertainment. About half of them, 125 million, are avid esports watchers. According to research firm Newzoo, esports is projected to generate $1.1 billion in revenue in 2019, marking the first year the industry would reach the billion-dollar mark.

“It’s been a joy to work with the entire Number29 team. Josh is genuine in his approach to our mission and is truly passionate about esports player development. We feel very fortunate to have found such a dedicated partner,” said Justin Hoeveler, Play Your Game Collective founder.

While esports have been around for over two decades, this industry is still in its infancy. We see now as a great time to begin educating players and fans on not only healthy gaming habits but on the full spectrum of opportunities present within the space.”

Number29 and Play Your Game Collective believe that by creating the programs now that provide both the educational tools, and healthy habits for fans to develop their careers within the space, we can begin to define the best practices, educational models and career advancement opportunities within the industry.
