The Gauntlet Has Been Thrown and the Greatest Showmatch in Senior Esports History Awaits in Summer 2022
TOKYO, JAPAN / ACCESSWIRE / November 30, 2021 / Original Gamer Life (OGL.tv) - a social impact ecosystem for gamers that supports a thriving and wealth-generating lifestyle - and its newly formed all-senior esports team Golden Snipers are wasting no time in their quest to make a statement on the international stage. The team, composed of former military and first responder gamers aged 60 and above, are formally extending a challenge to Japan's first-ever officially recognized senior-exclusive esports team, Matagi Snipers, for an international showmatch at DreamHack Dallas 2022.
'We're both honored and excited to extend this challenge to compete against the highly adept Matagi Snipers,' said Abbe Borg, Golden Snipers Team Captain. 'Facing off against the best in the world is what drives me, but for the team, it's about much more than winning; we are aiming to prove that age does not affect skill level. You just have to have the guts to play.'
Similar to the Golden Snipers, the Akita-based Matagi Snipers is composed of members between the ages of 66 and 73 years old. The team was established as a way to showcase the health benefits of esports for elderly gamers and a way for those seniors to connect to the younger generation of gamers. The Matagi Snipers practice weekly and are poised to take part in international matches thanks to official sponsors.
'It's all in good fun, and we're eager to take on the Matagi Snipers in a worthy battle,' said Brandon Sivret, CEO of Original Gamer Life. 'OGLife strives to encourage improved socialization with undersupported gaming demographics, and a featured match between the Golden Snipers and Matagi Snipers will showcase the level of greatness that's achievable when people with shared visions come together.'
While the Golden Snipers prepare for this historical bout, OGLife and Team Captain Abbe 'DieHardBirdie' Borg continue to accept applications to further expand their roster. Interested players over the age of 60 can apply here: https://www.ogl.tv/get-involved/.
