Aggressive Expansion Efforts Capitalize on a Renewed Industry-Wide Commitment to Athlete Wellness, Performance, and Mental Health
Vancouver, BC, CAN - Adamas, gaming’s premier esports performance startup, today announced the acquisition of its European competitor, Gscience. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Adamas will welcome Gscience leadership, onboard multiple specialist coaches, and transition current clients to the startup’s already stellar roster of premier gaming organizations. Adamas will also acquire Gscience’s entire tech stack and mobile application that will bring the company’s elite, out-of-game performance training to amateur and professional gamers via a monthly subscription service. Adamas will apply Gscience’s European reach and regional expertise to expand aggressively into the burgeoning market.
“As the industry matures, so do the needs of today’s top gaming athletes,” said Caleb Cousens, CEO, and founder of Adamas. “Over the last several years, we’ve helped our partners reimagine their training program into a comprehensive, 360-degree approach that balances in-game strategy with out-of-game wellness. Alongside our new Gscience colleagues, we’ll now bring that same, sports-science-based approach to new markets both abroad and in-app.”
Modern esports training looks beyond the endless in-game practice sessions to realize the potential of today’s top gaming athletes in an industry where a relatively minor competitive edge could result in a significant prize pool. That comprehensive approach is defined by mental and physical wellness exercises, team-building accelerators, and coaching development programs. Since the launch of Adamas in 2018, the company has helped top organizations like the NYXL, Version1, and EA’s FIFA pro program improve communication, approach matches with mental clarity, and create an internal culture for winning.
“Esports orgs, gamers, and coaches are finally recognizing that out-of-game training is a matter of in-game performance,” said Ryan Scollan, former CEO of Gscience and now Managing Director, Europe of Adamas. “We’ve admired and competed against Adamas for years, and we’re now thrilled to help elevate its already market-leading position across our native territory of Europe, and beyond.”
Gscience’s technology will greatly accelerate the company’s ambitious plans to bring its specialized training to more gamers around the world. The Adamas training app will embrace its established training methodology and distill key training experiences into routines that any performance-minded gamer can practice at home.
Recently, Adamas extended marquee commitments with TSM FTX and Version1 while welcoming new teams, coaches, and top-tier individual athletes as trainees. For more information on Adamas, please reach the media contact above or visit: www.AdamasEsports.gg
