Fibrus announced as Belfast Storm partner
Northern Ireland’s premier E-Sports team are set to take on some of the world’s greatest players in the League of Northern Legends International Championship this month with support from Fibrus Full Fiber Broadband.
Belfast Storm are the first team from Northern Ireland to qualify for the prestigious online tournament, which will see them face off against teams from across Europe and the Nordic countries. The Belfast-based team includes local analysts and coaches, and is complemented by some of the best gaming players from across Europe.
Belfast man Stuart McAllister, who is general manager of Belfast Storm, said: “You may not have heard of the Northern League of Legends Championship, but with over 4 million spectators it is. one of the most anticipated tournaments on the games calendar. We are delighted to represent Northern Ireland on this huge stage and are delighted to compete with some of the best players in the world. We have been training hard for months and with the support of our management team and our performance coach, we feel that we are in a place where coming out on top is a real prospect.
“Playing at this level is a lot more professional than just playing with your friends – you might have been a handyman on Street Fighter II, but that doesn’t mean you’re a world champion. It takes real commitment and hard work, as well as travel and downtime that we wouldn’t be able to do without the support of our partners. We are very grateful to the Fibrus team for supporting our campaign at this year’s championship and look forward to celebrating our achievements in the very near future.
Belfast Storm aims to be a disruptor in this year’s tournament as they face off against some of the most established names in the gaming community which has made the partnership with Fibrus a comfortable fit. Jemma Dougherty, PR and Communications Specialist at Fibrus added:
“Digital connectivity is an essential part of so many elements of our daily life, and few know it better than gamers. Broadband connection is essential for players to tackle challenges and battles from Belfast to Bangkok, Brisbane and Boston.
“Belfast Storm has been at the forefront of promoting high performance play in Northern Ireland, but aims to be a disruptor in this world tournament. We know what it’s like to be a disruptor and hope the work Fibrus is undertaking to bring full fiber optic to homes in villages and towns will inspire them even more and help even more people connect and get started. to play.
