Join GAAM and be a part of the future of gaming in Jacksonville
We want to build the esports and gaming community in Jacksonville and align you with it.
Pokemon Go has over 147 million active users, and has been downloaded over 800 million times. Overwatch was watched for over 101 million hours. Dragon Ball Fighter Z had 258,000 simultaneous viewers, and Street Fighter V had 215,000 simultaneous viewers during ONE EVENT.
That’s the community and culture we want to grow here in Jacksonville.
It’s also a young community without role models and leaders to instill values and push good sportsmanship. To grow that community and make sure that the next generation of garners, athletes, and leaders have GUIDANCE AND OPPORTUNITIES, WE need YOUR help.
Your sponsorship will help us create a more appealing event with bigger payouts for competitions. This not only creates more engagement points between your brand and it’s audience, but it brings more people into our city [we already have people flying in from Las Vegas, Chicago, New York, etc.) and creates more opportunities for the next generation.
It will help us manage communities and make it possible to have role models and community leaders at events. They’ll be able to supervise and provide guidance to these young athletes, and show them how to LOSE WITH GRACE, WIN WITH HUMILITY, AND SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER as they all strive for greatness.
It will help us achieve EQUALITY. We are pushing for representation and will have female Tournament Organizers, Commentators, and most importantly, COMPETITORS, and we put together an All Women’s Tournament, to highlight women in gaming, and show that women can compete, too.
It will help us make gaming ACCESSIBLE. This year, GAAM Gladiators will be one of the first esports events (ii not THE FIRST) to have an interpreter during the finals. We are currently seeking funding to introduce gaming stations with accessible controllers. This is the beginning of a long road that we started traveling down during the GAAM Show, to help make the future more accesible for everyone.
