We are proud sponsors of a professional eSports team based in Sweden called Team Darkstar. As sponsors of the team, we designed, built, maintain and host their website, the first port of call for visitors, fans, advertisers and other potential sponsors including their most recent sponsor, Logitec. The team play many games including Starcraft, League of Legends, CSGO and Heartstone. One of the players, Darkstar Orange,  recently won the grand final at the ESL Legendary Series, Katowice, Poland.

As you may be aware, eSports is no longer just the hobby it used to be and it is considered serious business for the virtual athletes that partake in it. Players now travel around the world competing in major events like this, often being awarded huge sums of money and admired by thousands of fans for their accomplishments. Some players are even awarded visas to work overseas in preparation for the events they complete in.
