Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we have been working hard to ensure that London Esports emerges from the crisis with a prosperous future ahead of it.
Along with many other esports teams and businesses operating in the sport and entertainment industry, we have been impacted directly by COVID-19.
This is not a short-term crisis and even when the immediate health risk is navigated, we expect there to be long-term economic effects. We’ve fought hard and continue to fight hard on behalf of our members to prevent any long lasting damage occurring to the organisation as a direct impact of the pandemic.
Unfortunately, after spending the last 7 months fighting hard to protect them, we must part-ways with all members of our fantastic Super Smash Bros roster. This will not be the end of our involvement in Smash and we fully intend to continue to play a significant role in the scene, in the years to come. However, with the current ongoing health crisis, we have decided to put all of our Smash activities on hold and we look forward to a future where we can resume working behind the scenes, to bring great content, experiences and moments to the Smash community here in the UK and Europe.
Alfie Wright, CEO of London Esports wished to add:
“We want to thank the Smash community for welcoming us with open arms and the fond memories we have from our time as part of the scene will never fade. I know that one day we will be able to once again return and support the Smash scene as vehemently as ever, and we look forward to being able to find new opportunities for doing so. Finally, I wish to thank Peli, AfroSmash, Jaxter, Bulby and Wade for being such an integral part of London Esports over the course of the last year and I wish you every success in your future endeavours.”
