Esports org Sports Gamers Now consolidates their ownership to move forward with more events. In the wake of medical issues for co-owner Matt Fuller, sole ownership of the company is now in the hands of Mike Bruhin.
These medical issues created confusion between the owners and event participants resulting in delays in payment after events. Bruhin said he’s on top of these problems and wants those who have yet to be paid to reach out directly to him.
“The total amounts owed to players are around $150,” he said. “I’m prepared to pay as soon as a payment option is communicated to me directly.”
Bruhin said he knows this is a difficult situation. Trust between orgs and competitors is always an issue. Bruhin still holds true to the core values of SGN and knows that players deserved to be compensated.
“I know how important it is to be transparent and honest,” he said. “My reputation is on the line here, and I don’t want to start my business career with a bad mark on my name.”
He continued. “I will put paying the players ahead of my own needs. I’m handling everything on the legal side of it and will make sure everyone is made whole.”
Bruhin said he greatly appreciates everything that everyone has done with SGN so far. All the new signees are doing great work. He asked anyone with questions or concerns to reach out to him directly. SGN will move forward as an esports entity and will keep growing.
