South African esports organisation Bravado Gaming has announced it will be expanding into the Middle East and Africa (MENA) region.

According to the company, it plans to expand into Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia. It also revealed plans to field an Egypt-based Valorant roster.

Bravado also announced the development of ‘interactive’ venues in Egypt, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia. The venues will be equipped with gaming equipment and will be used for events, training, and boot camps for Bravado players, as well as hosting public events.

In a statement made by the company, it revealed that they want to use these venues to “ease people into gaming and esports.”

“We are a brand and a message that consistently works to instil a specific value to individuals alike, both inside and outside of the game,” said CEO and Co-founder of Bravado Gaming, Andreas Hadjipaschali.

“The amazing team at Bravado will work tirelessly to expand on this model and positive way of being, to social and competitive gamers, endemic and non-endemic brands, as well as various ecosystems as we believe that we are far more than just a team of gamers.”

The organisation has recently re-signed their rosters in Rocket League, FIFA and Fortnite, as well as signing CS:GO and Valorant teams. The company also renewed its partnerships with Intel, Dell Gaming, and Alienware.

Bravado Gaming is an esports organisation based in South Africa, known mostly for its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) team which finished second at the DreamHack Winter open back in 2018.
