The Oslo-based professional eSports organization Nordavind DNB joins Blocksport to launch its own mobile app solution to strengthen its proximity with its Scandinavian fan community. Founded in 2017 under the ownership of Magni Sports AS and New Meta AS, and in collaboration with Vålerenga Football AS Nordavind has inherited the legacy of former Norwegian esports club, BX3. The organization shares facilities with its football club counterpart at Intility Arena.
Subscribing to a line of thought coined «Downloaded minimalism», Nordavind aims to harmonize traditional Scandinavian design virtues with iconic imagery and technological shrewdness while bridging the gap between traditional and electronic sports. Humble, confident, competent – and carry a big stick
Nordavind becomes our biggest Scandinavian esports club to underline its commitment towards gamified fan engagement and will simultaneously be able to strengthen its sponsoring partner’s brand awareness while offering unique money can’t buy experiences to its fans.
Blocksport’s white label club app will offer Nordavind’s fan community an innovative way to interact with the teams, players and sponsoring partners. The mobile solution will allow fans to influence club-related decisions within polls and access exclusive benefits through team-related fan games.
