LCS organization FlyQuest is making some new year’s resolutions for the 2020 esports season. They are bringing on a new CEO, a new training facility and announced their new Go Green initiative. These are significant structural changes entering the competitive year.
FlyQuest named Tricia “megumixbear” Sugita as the new Chief Executive Officer. She joined the organization in January 2018 as Chief Operating Officer, and carries roughly eight years of esports experience.
“The heart of FlyQuest is ‘greatness,’ and it drives everything we do. We’ve done a great job bringing in the right people and creating a culture that celebrates greatness. As CEO, my priority is to share our vision so everyone knows that what we do has purpose and ties back to our vision: showcasing greatness. We want to inspire and attract people who pursue greatness and support others who do the same.”
Building from this idea of “Showcasing Greatness,” FlyQuest and Sugita announce a 2020 initiative called “Go Green.” The organization will move towards eco-friendly policies, regarding “community activations, jersey design, and campaigns.” Sugita specifically mentions raising money for planting trees and saving the turtles.
FlyQuest is also opening a training facility called “The Greenhouse,” which includes practice rooms for the LCS and Academy teams, review rooms and content studios. The 7,000 square foot facility has a green facade, embodying “life, nature, growth, harmony, and the environment,” according to Sugita.
This structure adds to the long list of esports training facilities directed towards the LCS. Teams like Team Liquid, 100 Thieves and Counter Logic Gaming have previously built or announced plans for esports training facilities.
