As each week passes, we are seeing more footballers and sports stars crossover into the world of esports and gaming.

Last month, Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Man United’s Harry Maguire joined new UK esports org Semper Fortis as ambassadors. David Beckham recently talked about the launch of Guild Esports’ academy. And last year, Dele Alli joined Excel Esports.

Now Chelsea FC and England international footballer Mason Mount has been announced as the first official brand Ambassador for Combat Gaming, an entertainment, gaming and media company which organises celebrity gaming events.

The company is owned by 38 Entertainment Group, which is also the parent of Gareth Bale’s Ellevens Esports.

In his new role, Mason will create and front a set of new content series.

Mason will also compete in Combat Gaming’s invite-only events which pit celebrities and gamers against each other across different titles such as FIFA, Call of Duty and Fortnite. Mason is an avid gamer with a particular focus on Call of Duty: Warzone.

“Becoming an official brand ambassador with Combat Gaming means I get to take on the world’s biggest celebrities and gamers in various tournaments throughout the year.”
