Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 6 October 2021: Galaxy Racer, one of the fastest-growing esports, gaming and lifestyle organizations in the world, headquartered in Dubai, has announced a partnership with celebrity and entrepreneur Fakhr-e-Alam to establish Galaxy Racer Pakistan, as part of their aggressive expansion plans globally.
Galaxy Racer has a global footprint with over 370 million followers worldwide, with over 100 content creators and over 2 billion monthly views. Earlier this year, Galaxy Racer signed Pakistan’s top Fortnite player Nyle “Nyle” Hasan. He has won championships such as the Fortnite Champion Series – Middle East.
Fakhr-e-Alam will lead the growth in Pakistan and further increase Galaxy Racer’s footprint in South Asia. With Galaxy Racer expanding into Pakistan, it will further bring international experience to empower and grow the local ecosystem.
Back in January 2021, Galaxy Racer, under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook Al Maktoum, together with Cinepax, organised the first-ever Pakistan vs. India Fortnite tournament with a prize pool of US$10,000, the biggest prize pool in the history of any Pakistani esports tournament.
Earlier in July 2021, Galaxy Racer joined forces together with Arsenal superstar English Premier League footballer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang by hosting the first-ever Fortnite esports tournament between Europe and the Middle East with a EURO 10,000 prize pool.
Galaxy Racer has formed a three-year partnership with Spanish football league LaLiga. The partnership will see both entities collaborate to create an original content series that will feature players from LaLiga, as well as Galaxy Racer’s influencers.
Fakhr-e-Alam, who was the first ever Pakistani startup entrepreneur to be invited by Google to their Mountain View HQ in 2017 said, “Pakistani youth holds the key for the future of Pakistan. We want to see Pakistani youth participate and compete globally. We all know Pakistan has plenty of talent. It’s time to invest and give our talents a global platform, which is what we will be doing with Galaxy Racer Pakistan.”
Galaxy Racer is set to make further major announcements regarding Pakistan in the next coming days.
