Nigma Galaxy and Aldar will create an esports training facility for Nigma players, located at the Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi. The facility will become a centre for developing new talents, with training programmes and internship opportunities for students and esports enthusiasts.
Nigma will also have access to Aldar’s portfolio of real estate. This means that the esports brand can from now on use Aldar-operated spaces to host esports competitions and accommodate its players when needed.
Nigma Galaxy is one of the largest esports brands in the Middle East. Created by a merger between Team Nigma and Galaxy Racer in 2021, the organisation is one of the most successful MENA teams globally. The organisation won the first and second season of the ESL Impact League, and has rosters in Dota 2, Free Fire, CS:GO, League of Legends, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and other titles.

Aldar, on the other hand, is one of the most prominent real estate companies in Abu Dhabi, the capital of UAE. The company is perhaps most known for its work on Yas Island, Al Raha and Reem Island. Aldar’s development business is paired with Aldar Investment, the company’s investment arm. This is the first time the company is partnering with an esports brand.
Christoph Timm, Co-Founder of Nigma Galaxy commented: “Together we have been able to pool our resources and knowledge to create completely new grassroots esports opportunities for young people. We are also able to offer creative ways for fans to engage with the Aldar brand through an in-game activation.”
