India's homegrown men's grooming essential brand The Man Company has tied up with Irony Esports, a community-first esports platform, and GamerzArena to launch a gaming championship called ‘Free Fire-Gentlemen Got Game Championship’.

The partnership strengthens The Man Company's awareness-to-action journey and takes the 'bring out the gentlemen' in you positioning to new heights.

The collaboration is a step-further to connect with young gamers through esports, live streaming, and gaming channels.

Through this championship, The Man Company is following the Gen Z culture of live-streaming, passion economy, video gaming, and internet-based interest communities. 

The Free Fire-Gentlemen Got Game Championship is based on the battle royale game ‘Free Fire’ for which the registrations have already begun for 1,000 team slots and will close on January 19.

It is open-for-all and can be registered through the GamerzArena website. The Grand Finale will be organized on January 29 and 30.

The championship has a dual format that allows both 'open' and 'invited' teams to participate. It will be conducted in five-phases after commencing on January 20. The winning teams will receive prize money of Rs 1 lakh plus a gift hamper. All the participants will be given discount codes.

Hitesh Dhingra, Co-founder, The Man Company, said, “As we embark on the 2022 journey, we have decided not to make hard to complete new year resolutions but instead start a revolution in the right spirit. Since inception, we have been on the quest to promote inside-out grooming, and with the 'Gentlemen Got Game' theme we have decided to take our awareness-to-action journey to a new level.”

“Our motive is to fortify our ties with Gen Z as they are the future of our country through a medium in which they are comfortable. The intent is to start instilling the Gentleman Code of Conduct in them at a young age wherein they are more likely to absorb these relevant yet unprecedented thoughts. You can't force someone to grow up as a gentleman. It is a matter of choice. We are simply here to help them make this choice in the right spirit,” he added.

Tushaar Garg, Founder and CEO, Irony Esports, said, “In today’s internet culture nothing is more resonating, relatable and relevant for the everyday Indian gaming aficionado than ‘Bring Out the Gentleman in You’ message. I am pleased that The Man Company has identified gaming, esports and live streaming as a fertile ground for this story-telling and community building that will propel Gen Z to be mindful, real and authentic in their conduct.”

Brian Wilneff, Chief Executive Officer at Alpha Metaverse Technologies Inc, said, “We are pleased to work with 'The Man Company' in their endeavour to not only provide the best product for their consumer, but also meet them in an environment that their consumer thrives in. Organic marketing through video games shows just how forward thinking 'The Man Company' is. With our expertise in the development and expansion of the Metaverse, this partnership provides 'The Man Company' an exciting entry point into the space for years to come.”
