MENA-based sports organization Nigma Galaxy has entered into a partnership with Abu Dhabi-based real estate development company Aldar (Aldar Properties PJSC).
Alder, Nigma Galaxy’s official real estate and education partner, will develop an eSports training facility and launch grassroots initiatives with the eSports brand. The Aldar branding will also appear on Nigma Galaxy jerseys.

Nigma Galaxy and Aldar will establish an eSports training facility for Nigma players at Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi. The facility will become a center for developing new talent with training programs and internship opportunities for students and sports enthusiasts.
Nigma will also have access to Aldar’s real estate portfolio. This means that from now on, the esports brand can use the Aldar-operated premises to host esports competitions and accommodate their players when needed.
Nigma Galaxy is one of the biggest eSports brands in the Middle East. The organization, formed in 2021 from the merger of Team Nigma and Galaxy Racer, is one of the most successful MENA teams in the world. The organization won the first and second seasons 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 best-known real estate companies in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. The company is perhaps best 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 has partnered with an esports brand.
Christoph Timm, co-founder of Nigma Galaxy, commented: “Together we were able to pool our resources and knowledge to create completely new grassroots sport opportunities for young people. We are also able to offer creative ways for fans to engage with the Aldar brand through in-game activation.”
