Gambit Esports will be rebranded as AS Monaco Gambit after participating in a partnership with the Ligue 1 football club.

The Russian DOTA team– and their Fortnite brethren– will sport the team’s signature red and white for their jerseys in competition. They’ll be understood as ASM.GMB for brief.

AS Monaco general manager Oleg Petrov stated the offer is a win for both sides.

” Creation of AS Monaco Gambit will permit us to make a new step in a rapidly growing market by signing up with forces with a strong gamer at the worldwide esports arena,” Petrov stated. “This union is useful from 2 points of view: enabling us to diversify our activities by dealing with a various audience, young and really connected, while accompanying the club’s internalization technique by developing our presence in crucial areas.”

The DOTA roster, which is presently competing in the lower department of CIS Dota Pro Circuit League Season 1, will remain the exact same.
