Determined to break into the global elite, the two have their sights set on producing long term championship results together. Competing under the name PSG Tundra, the team will be leveraging the Paris Saint-Germain brand’s growing stature in gaming with the unique expertise of Tundra in esports performance and content creation to build a highly engaged global audience of fans.
