Semper Fortis incoming and outgoing players update


Semper Fortis Esports PLC (AQSE: SEMP), the esports and gaming company focused on establishing esports teams, Web3 communities and forming brand and technology partnerships, has reached an agreement to sign three new talents for their SMPR Esports talent roster.

The company has successfully secured new signings via contracts with:

i.    Jack Wignall ('GoalPoacher'), Preston, UK, has signed a 1-year deal to represent SMPR FIFA team.


Jack is a seasoned player and considered to be one of the best upcoming talents in professional FIFA. At just 17 years old, Jack has recently won the ePremier League, representing Norwich Football Club.


ii.    Ayaan Ahmed ('Asura'), London, UK, has signed a 1 month trial contract to represent SMPR as a content creator and commentator across Nintendo Smash Bros and other games. Upon completion, an option to extend his contract by 11 months will be activated.


Ayaan is an experienced gamer and professional commentator across a number of games, mainly Smash Bros.  His signing will prove pivotal in creating a voice  which SMPR can use across broadcasting efforts moving forward.


iii.   Kim-Philippe Ruddy Badiabio, London, UK, has signed a 1-month trial contract to represent SMPR as a content creator across Tekken and other fight-based games. Upon completion, an option to extend his contract by 11 months will be activated.


Kim is a well-known and experienced fighter across the niche fighter game Tekken, amongst a number of other fighting games. His experience in the pro Tekken scene will be significant in promoting SMPR across this category and gaining exposure to its audiences.

SMPR has recently terminated the contract of FIFA professional Jaskarn Singh.


Jassem Osseiran, COO of Semper Fortis Esports, commented: "SMPR continues to grow its roster and offering across UK esports, securing amazing talents and openings to new audience types that will contribute to SMPRs brand growth.
