Popular esports organization Immortals has secured $30 million funding round and will also rebrand itself to Immortals Gaming Club.
The Immortals brand has teams in the Rainbow Six: Siege scene and the Clash Royale scene. It also operates teams in the Overwatch League and in CS:GO—the Los Angeles Valiant and MIBR are two of the most popular teams in their respective esports.
Investors in the series B round include AEG, Lionsgate, the Milken Family Foundation, Steve Kaplan, and Meg Whitman.
Immortals also announced it had acquired the Brazilian game matchmaking platform Gamers Club. The service is a community platform that connects over one million players across Brazil, especially with the Brazilian CS:GO scene. It helps connect gamers through tournaments, coaching, and social networking.
The company will now have two core businesses: IGC Esports and Gamers Club. IGC Esports will operate all the esports teams under the Immortals, Los Angeles Valiant and MIBR brands.
“Bringing together a premier platform in Gamers Club and our core esports team operations is a critical and exciting step in enabling IGC to become a vertically integrated, truly global esports and gaming organization.” Immortals’ CEO Ari Segal said.
