Mogul Teams Up With Melbourne Melee to Kick Off LAN Tournaments
Mogul, a market-leading esports tournament platform, has today announced its partnership with esports organising body, Melbourne Melee Inc., as they prepare to launch local LAN tournaments and brand new online events.
Just last week, Mogul announced details of its partnership with Legacy Esports and have now strengthened the popular tournament platform’s offerings further by adding Melbourne Melee to its list of strategic partners.
As part of the first Fighting Gaming Community (FGC) LAN events to be hosted on Mogul, competitors can compete on the market-tested tournament platform for cash prize pools. Players within Melbourne Melee’s community will also have the opportunity to compete in partner-branded tournaments, as well as native Mogul tournaments with cash prizes on the line for winners, serving as qualifiers into national and international finals.
Melbourne Melee will transition from a global competitor platform to the Mogul’s best-in-class and widely used technology in preparation for LAN community tournaments.
Melbourne Melee President, Cailan Kingsbury, said, “This partnership allows us to bring our community together on a platform that offers them a better experience, more access to events and exposure to the broader esports and gaming community. We look forward to growing with the Mogul team.”
This is Mogul’s first official partnership with an organising body to support grassroots activity in FGCs and the two parties will collaborate on activities to support online community engagement and expansion into the Australian market.
Melbourne Melee is Melbourne's premiere competitive Super Smash Bros. community who facilitate tournaments, meetups, LAN events (local area network) and streams for Super Smash Bros and other fighting game communities, with up to 15,000 concurrent viewers on the LAN event broadcasts.
Mogul’s Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer, Jamie Skella, is excited to welcome Melbourne Melee to Mogul.
“This is one of many future partnerships of this kind which gives us the opportunity to support grassroots through state-of-art tournament technology which is already in-market, a superior user experience, and a mutually beneficial financial model. This gives organisers like Melbourne Melee the opportunity to do bigger and better things for their community as they continue to grow with Mogul.”
