US Air Force Takes Wing With Dignitas For Esports

The esports company Dignitas, a division of New Meta Entertainment, has announced a partnership with the US Air Force. Under the agreement, the USAF becomes the Official Military Service Partner of Dignitas, and will work alongside Dignitas to showcase the entities’ shared competitive spirit through educational, inspirational, and interactive content featuring Dignitas professional competitive gaming athletes and content creators.

Additionally, the organizations will create and host an online broadcast esports event to be held in the later half of the 2021 calendar year, continuing the success of the co-branded Dignitas and U.S. Air Force 2020 ‘Wingman Series’ Counter Strike: Global Offensive Tournament.

“Dignitas is proud to work alongside one of the most technologically advanced and career-enabling brands in the world,” said John Spiher, VP of Partnerships. “Reflective of the Dignitas fanbase, our roster of pro players and creators are highly analytical, dedicated, goal-oriented, and driven by precision—traits shared by the U.S Air Force’s active and reservist servicemen and women. We look forward to highlighting exciting and meaningful integrations alongside the Air Force.”

Known by gamers as CS:GO, Counter Strike includes a two versus two player Wingman game mode that was added to the game in May of 2017 and became a permanent feature later that year.

In this mode, maps are smaller and more compact, and there are only two players on one team. Other rules are similar to the Competitive mode of CS:GO, and the mode is popular with high end esports competitors.

Given Dignitas’ commitment to supporting and empowering female gamers, Spiher says the esports organization will showcase and honor the personal and professional stories of active and reserve U.S. Air Force servicewomen across the country, via digital features on Dignitas and Raidiant social media platforms and websites.

Dignitas currently fields seven teams in five of esports’ largest and most popular games: League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valorant, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), and Rocket League. With content studios and player wellness facilities in Greater New York City and Los Angeles, and infrastructure in Europe, Dignitas is a global leader dedicated to esports athletes, digital influencers and entertainment game-changers.
