Founded in Houston, Texas, Valhallan began as a platform for training and improving eSports skills, but has since expanded into franchising and training. Specifically, the Company acquired NXT UP, a youth sports platform operating in the United States, as part of its strong foray into esports.

As part of the merger of the leagues and the launch of the VHEL, Valhallan announced the inaugural event for the league called Rise to Ragnarok. The tournament is open to youth esports teams around the world and includes VALORANT, Rocket League, Fortnite and Overwatch 2. Entry to the tournament is free.

In a statement after the league’s launch, Valhallan noted that the goal of the league is to provide the company with new resources, business opportunities and growth. These include increased access to collegiate esports representation, the ability to frequently host large events and the ability to hire more extensive support staff, the company said.

Although the contest itself is free, Valhallan encourages all participants to donate to Autism Speaks, a United States-based autism advocacy group.

Matt Phillips, Valhallan Brand President, added, “The merger of NAEL and UFEA to form the new VHEL opens up many opportunities not only for our youth, but also for aspiring entrepreneurs looking to break into an ever-growing esports industry.

“The merger gives existing and potential future Valhallan franchise owners a unique advantage for scaling their business in a high-demand market, while creating a fun and safe environment for children to learn while participating in an activity that is relevant to them.” Is funny.”
