BOSTON – 1st February, 2016 – eSports.US is pleased to announced Loot Market as a premier sponsor of Team Freedom for 2016, supporting North America’s new and upcoming Dota 2 team.
“We are absolutely pleased and excited to have our team be backed by Loot Market, a recently launched service for the Dota 2 community, and an organization that already understands eSports,” said Nich Wattanasin, founder and owner of eSports.US, “and we are eagerly looking forward to working with Loot Market to expand our promotion of eSports in the United States and growing the Team Freedom organization and its success.” Since being announced in December of last year, Team Freedom met early success by placing first in the Shanghai Major 2016 Americas Open Qualifiers in January.
