Razer, Global eSports and Harrisburg University are known actors of the esport industry. Razer is a gaming hardware brand popular among players, especially for their mouses and keyboards, while Global eSports is an organization owning several professional esports teams, such as Indian teams on Overwatch, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, DOTA 2, Rainbow Six Siege, PUBG, Apex Legends, as well as the Korean Fortnite team.
Harrisburg University may come as a surprise for the national team of Singapore. However, this university, located between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, has already teamed up with Global eSports to provide a pre-World Cup bootcamp for Team India.
Earlier this summer, Team Singapore unveiled the players attending the Overwatch World Cup at the Anaheim Convention Centre in November. Taking up the damage-dealing roles are Figo "Azalea" Chua, Timotheus "Bubblekitty" Yeo, and Jasper "yuris" Yue. Mohammed "Sachokk" Asri and Muhammad "Xenofly" Syafiq form the tanking duo, while Alston "Jervyz" How and Akame are playing support. Seetoh “John Galt” Jian Qing, head coach of Washington Justice, joins in as Singapore’s head coach.
