Dota 2 team Team Nigma has announced that it has partnered with Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates. The "long-term" partnership marks the first time an esports team has been sponsored by a major airline, and marks the next stage of the organisation's relocation to Abu Dhabi.
The partnership will see Nigma and its support staff "arrive, relaxed, refreshed and on time for their packed global schedule", and also further cements the team as one of the leading esports organisations.
"We are grateful that Etihad Airways committed to a long-term partnership especially during these testing times," said Christoph Timm, Co-Founder of Team Nigma. "Like us, Etihad believes in supporting and developing new upcoming talents from the region and see esports as a major industry for the region. The amount of support they have already shown us is admirable. This is just the beginning of our journey together, and we look forward to more unique activations in the future."
