This was the first time the Sigma League of Legends Tournament was hosted. 160 gamers competed and the tournament has received great attention among e-sports youngsters. Dreamhack and Nocco also supported the competition through sponsorship.
Sigma IT Consulting sponsors the female team Sigma Gaming, one of Sweden's best e-sports teams in the Female Legends tournament for instance. Through this initiative, Sigma wants to contribute to increasing the number of young people interested in the IT Industry, as well as increasing gender equality in both e-sports and the industry.
– E-sport is growing enormously. More than 190 million play or follow e-sports more than four days a week. Because there is a great lack of IT engineers, we want more people to open their eyes to the IT industry and choose to get an education in the field and, of course, work at Sigma. We want to employ the stars of the future, say’s Beatrice Silow, Communications and Cultural Manager, at Sigma IT Consulting.
