Harry Maguire Joins Semper Fortis Esports
Manchester United's Harry Maguire has taken up a key Esports role as ambassador for the United Kingdom based Semper Fortis.
Earlier this year, his current manager and former Manchester United player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became a part-owner in the Norwegian esports management company Ulti Agency.
Maguire will join Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin who also signed for Semper Fortis last week.
"When I'm not on the pitch and training one of my favourite ways to relax is playing online against teammates and friends. It has been a great way to pass the time, particularly in lockdown.
When I was approached by Semper Fortis to become one of its ambassadors I was really intrigued about what they are looking to achieve in gaming and esports.
As an athlete, I understand the pressures of a competitive environment and I am excited to share my experience of competing in the world's biggest leagues with Semper Fortis.
We already have lots of exciting projects in the pipeline for this year, so watch this space."
Semper Fortis was founded by former Atari founder Nolan Bushell and is currently chaired by Keith Harris who previoulsy worked for the Football League and Director of Wembley National Stadium.
"We are delighted to have brought both Harry, and last week Dominic, on board as ambassadors and will be spending time working with them in the short term to achieve our stated aims.
We may in the medium term look to sign further brand ambassadors in line with the high standards that we have set ourselves with Dominic and Harry.
Keith Harris, Chairman of Semper Fortis Esports, added: As with Dominic, we look forward to Harry supporting our Top Blokes esports team which competes in the Rocket League in Europe and are equally excited for his involvement with this fast-growing and fun esports industry."
