SKINS for eSPORTS?

When SKINS Compression Sportswear meets Resolve GG.

Although for many people, eSports having seemingly come out of nowhere, they aren’t anything new; in fact, they’ve been around since the 70s.

If you don’t know much about it, eSports is a competition using video games. Just like ‘traditional’ sports, there are teams, leagues, tournaments and prizes. In addition, there are governing bodies and even scholarships and college eSports teams. However, unlike ‘traditional’ sports, the number of players per team depends on the game, and teams only play certain games meaning they only take part in particular leagues and tournaments.

People argue that eSports isn’t a ‘real’ sport, but it is. eSports athletes are trained just like traditional athletes. They practice, they learn new strategies, they work on team coordination. They train physically; they have coaches and nutritionists. They work just as hard as ‘traditional’ athletes do.

We’re thrilled to be collaborating with UKLC (the UK’s premier League of Legends competition) team, Resolve to research and develop eSports centric performance Compression Sportswear.

Resolve is a competitive eSports organisation based in the UK. Their mission is to inspire the future generation of eSports talent to be ambitious and pursue their goals with the belief that they can accomplish anything, regardless of their background. Resolve also provides coaching to the community and aims to spread awareness of contemporary issues within eSports.
