Division 6ix, a new London-based esports organisation, is promoting a £20-a-year ‘Season Pass’ which gives its members access to several benefits.

The Division 6ix Season Pass provides options for ‘regular professional coaching sessions, exclusive premium membership events, priority access to limited UK esports tournaments and early access to some of Division 6ix’s upcoming projects’.

Division 6ix promises the Academy Season Pass will also be tailored to each of its members, depending on their game of choice and interests.

Esports News UK has asked Division 6ix what the coaching specifically consists of, what the options are and if each session is paid-for.

Content manager David Quinn responded: “We will be having several tutoring, teambuilding and networking events overseen by coaches that only premium members can attend, and coaching sessions will be offered at a significant discount for premium members.”

We’ve been told exact numbers will be passed to us soon.

The org’s academy also operates youth community initiatives, offers ‘outreach and funding’, provides opportunities for amateur players or content creators to become professional. There are paid and free options, with players gaining access to coaching, Division 6ix tournaments and leaderboard, which tracks their progress across tournaments and weekly challenges.

Division 6ix also has plans to build its own gaming venues in London ‘to create a foundation of community and opportunity in professional gaming’.

“The Esports industry is saturated with so many pro players and content creators that it’s a challenge for emerging talent to break through and make money from their passion. Division 6ix is going to facilitate the development of players from amateur to professional level.”

Division 6ix was founded in 2020 by Olu Adenekan with the goal of ‘turning contenders into champions’.

“The Esports industry is saturated with so many pro players and content creators that it’s a challenge for emerging talent to break through and make money from their passion,” Olu said. “Division 6ix is going to facilitate the development of players from amateur to professional level.”

Division 6ix added in a statement: “Division 6ix is a growth-oriented esports company, which means that rather than trying to sign a reigning champion, we’d prefer to invest in the underdog. One of the esports industry’s greatest assets
is its almost-constant influx of new talent, new potential champions.

“But one of the esports industry’s greatest threats is organizations neglecting new talent in favor of investing solely in established players. We believe that by investing in new talent we can keep the Esports scene fresh, competitive, and fair.”

Division 6ix also has two division houses, Emerald and Jade, dedicated to content creation. It’s signing young and up-andcoming videographers, streamers, photographers and personalities.

The org is also looking to expand across Europe, Asia and America by 2022, with six new houses for each nation.
