TNL Take: If you still don't believe that Pro Sports and eSports will provide a symbiotic relationship, here are 20 examples.

Now we can add some more big names to the list.

According to an SEC Filing found via TheScore eSports, Cloud 9 has raised $2.8M and looking for $3M total.

Now the investors weren't disclosed but I'm going to make a guess.

Who's in that picture above at Blizzcon 2016?

  • Patriots Owner Robert Kraft
  • Activision-Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick
  • Rams Owner Stan Kroenke
  • Cloud 9 Owner Jack Etienne

Coincidence?

I'm guessing not.

My guess on a few that invested in Cloud9 - The Kraft's and Elon Musk

Every other large North American eSports team owner is very happy right now.
