EXCEL ESPORTS launches “cutting edge” HQ in Central London alongside shift in leadership

EXCEL ESPORTS has announced the launch of its XL Headquarters which signalled a “significant moment” in the growth of the organisation by cementing its roots in central London with a “cutting edge” 5,660 sq ft gaming facility.

Over the last 12 months, EXCEL has seen significant growth in all areas of the business with new industry-leading partnerships in Just Eat and JD Sports, the expansion of its content creator family and now the opening of its official London headquarters, the XL HQ.

At 5,660 sq ft, the facility boasts streaming rooms, production studios and space for EXCEL’s community, teams, fans, partners and the wider gaming industry to utilise and enjoy.

Uniquely positioned in Shoreditch, London the HQ will aim to be a centralised place for the UK gaming community and a hub from where EXCEL will grow its operational footprint to Europe.

Going forward EXCEL will continue to build on its competitive success while growing and nurturing its British and international community. EXCEL will look to accelerate its growth through new initiatives and strategic partnerships focusing on its content development and creator economy.

Wouter Sleijffers, CEO of EXCEL ESPORTS, said: “Over the past year, we’ve significantly invested in talent across the board and worked to give EXCEL ESPORTS the home it deserves.

“I’m very proud of where we are now, of our world-class talent on stage and off stage, our strong and growing community and our valuable and industry-leading partners. We have also now created a hub where all of EXCEL, and the UK esports and gaming community can gather.

Commenting on his recent promotion, Oskar Sisi, marketing & brand director of EXCEL ESPORTS commented: ‘I’m excited to take on a broader role at EXCEL. As a leadership team, we all share the same vision and understand the importance of our community and innovating in the space.

“We aim to create memorable experiences with the community and empower them on a creative level. Over the last few months, we’ve done tremendous work on the brand and the quality of our content, and it’s only the beginning for us.”
