Axiomatic Gaming, the parent company of Team Liquid has secured a huge investment in the past 24 hours. The sources have verified that the NA organization has received over $ 21.5 million. Yet the investors remains unknown since their names were not seen in the SEC filing documents.
This is not the first time that Axiomatic has received such a substantial investment. Since in October 2018, one of the living legends of the NBA, Michael Jordan invested over $ 25 million.
In the past apart from Michael Jordan, Peter Guber the co-owner of Golden State Warriors, Ted Leonsis the owner of Washington Capitals, and Jeff Vinik the sole owner of Tampa Bay Lightning made the investment into the organization. Axiomatic is the parent organization of Team Liquid. It is one of the most successful teams in eSports. The organization currently holds active roster in multiple eSports divisions including Super Smash Bros, Dota 2, League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

The Counter-Strike team finished the last year in the top 4 spots of the world rankings. They are one of the veteran organizations of the industry and they are here to stay in the long run. Its League Of Legends team won the 2019 Spring Split Season. The team will be competing in Vietnam in a couple of weeks against some of the best teams in the world. The Dota 2 team won the world championship in 2017. It hosts some of the best players in the world. The richest player of Dota 2, Kuroky is the captain of the team.
