Team Vitality, the leading esports club in France and Europe, is proud to present its first women’s League of Legends team, in close collaboration with its partner ALDI. The “French Bees” team joins all of the six remaining teams of Team Vitality, and marks a strategic turning point within its structure.

The French Bees’ goal will be to compete in several key French competitions in 2023, starting with the MasterCard Nexus Tour (formerly Open Tour France). They will also have the ambition to play for the title in the Women’s League. Finally, the team will also participate in French LANs (physical tournaments) throughout the year.

Thanks to the commitment of Team Vitality’s partner ALDI, the organisation will put its expertise and strengths at the service of the French Bees team to enable them to reach the highest competitive level in the French women’s League of Legends scene. The academy team will benefit from access to Team Vitality premium resources provided throughout the year, including V.Hive and V.Performance (Stade de France). The team will be integrated into a professional environment and will be offered tailor-made management.

Coached by Shac Nicholson and benefiting from the expertise of Team Vitality staff, The French Bees will include:

  • Coline “Chubby Daddy” Reiter, Strasbourg (France), 24 years old, Top Laner

Peak elo: Diamond 1 76 lp

  • Lexa “Lexa” Grellier, Rennes (France), 21 years old, Jungler

Peak elo: Master 56 lp

  • Alyssa “saï” Lenoir, Pérenchies (France), 18 years old, Midlaner

Peak elo: Diamond 2 62 lp

  • Emeline “Kasane” Baudouin, Tour (France), 24 years old, Support

Peak elo : Master 282 lp

  • Velouria “Viki” Baty, Paris (France), 25 years old, ADC and Captain

ALDI, a major partner of the project, is a central support to the visibility and performance of this new team. The players will have the same promotional conditions as all Team Vitality teams such as: communication on the club’s networks and innovative promotional. In addition, the “French Bees” team will proudly wear the new Hummel jersey in the Team Vitality colors, which will include an ALDI promotion.

Team Vitality and ALDI wish to take the French Bees players as far as possible in the competition. The company’s support shows its desire to be an active partner in esports and its development. ALDI and Team Vitality are proud to unveil Team Vitality’s first women’s roster, and are committed to supporting the engagement of more women in the professional scene, as whilst more than 50% of gamers are women, only 6% of professional esports players are female*.

This launch of French Bees is a reminder of ALDI’s ambition to position itself as a committed partner in the esports sector and to actively participate in its development.

We are very proud to present our first all-women team within Team Vitality. Through this new academy project, we remain faithful to our strategy of identifying, developing and promoting talent. We hope that this team will go as far as possible in the competition and help pave the way for the further development of women’s esports in France“, says Fabien “Neo” Devide, President and co-founder of Team Vitality.

There is no doubt that everyone has a place in esports, regardless of gender, age or status. As for the other teams we support, we want to work to encourage all profiles to accomplish themselves and the French Bees will thus contribute to shedding light on the place of women in esport and more broadly, in gaming! This sector is one of the favorite playgrounds of the younger generations, it can naturally act as a vector for progress in terms of parity within society, and we are committed to contributing to this movement“, explains Anne-Marie Gaultier, Marketing and Communication Director at ALDI France.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

BLAST, the global esports entertainment company, and British Esports, the national body for esports in the UK, have announced a strategic partnership during a landmark year for the UK industry.

This collaboration will focus BLAST and British Esports efforts on political lobbying, grassroots development, education, careers, and professional development. The partnership comes during a historic year for the UK esports industry, with a record number of tier one esports events taking place, helping to position the region as a global hub for esports and gaming.

With the UK holding an 6% share of the global esports market and the global sector expected to reach $1.6 billion by the end of this year, this partnership aims to capitalise on this momentum and foster further growth.
Robbie Douek, CEO of BLAST, said: “This partnership with British Esports is a pivotal step in our mission to support the esports ecosystem in the UK. By focusing on key pillars together, we aim to create a sustainable and inclusive environment that encourages growth and professional development at every level. This year alone, the world’s biggest game publishers are choosing the UK as a destination for their esports ecosystems and arena events, helping position the region as a global hub for esports and big-scale events.

This partnership with British Esports will allow us bridge the gap between tier one arena events and grassroots esports.”
Chester King, CEO of British Esports, said: “2024 is a landmark year for esports in the UK as we host some of the most iconic global esports events.

This is an incredible opportunity to leave a legacy from grassroots to professional that promotes the UK as a leading global destination for esports. That is why we were thrilled when Robbie and the team at BLAST visited our National Esports Performance Campus in Sunderland earlier this month to finalise our partnership. This collaboration between two leading British esports organisations will not only help to solidify the UK as a leading hub for esports but also ensure that we are nurturing the next generation of talent and providing them with the tools and opportunities they need to succeed.”

The partnership comes in a month where London is set to host two tier one esports arena events in consecutive weeks, with the BLAST Premier Spring Final taking place in Wembley Arena this week and the RLCS London Major in Copper Box Arena next week. These combined events will see more than 25,000 fans watch live esports events in-person in the United Kingdom in June alone.
To mark the launch of the partnership, Robbie Douek, CEO for BLAST, recently met Dave Martin, SVP for British Esports, for a tour of the National Esports Performance Campus in Sunderland.
