About GAIMIN Gladiators
GAIMIN Gladiators were formed from the OCG Esports Club; a Canadian Esports organisation established in 2019 by brothers Nick and Alex Cuccovillo and Shawn Porter. Their aim was to conquer their chosen esports and since 2019 they have achieved significant success winning major events such as Dreamhack Canada for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and successfully competing in the highest pro-amateur league in North America.
The Club expanded into Warcraft 3 in Europe and North America, competing in the most prestigious leagues and tournaments with the strongest lineup and players in the game. In support of their aspirations for growth, the Club moved into new and emerging verticals, participating in Rainbow Six Siege and playing in the Challengers League for two years. OCG’s focused on the semi-professional esports pro scene and its surrounding ecology – building a platform and ecosystem for gamers.
OCG has some of the best talent in Canada in its gaming roster, representing Canada at national level across tournaments in North America. Through constant innovation, community-driven goals and working with top talent, OCG has striven to create an inclusive, respected and distinguished brand for gamers.
The OCG philosophy fully aligns with the GAIMIN principle of “No Gamer Left Behind” and makes OCG the perfect fit for GAIMIN. Based on their gaming successes and principles, OCG is now part of GAIMIN and have re-branded as GAIMIN Gladiators.
GAIMIN Gladiators will represent GAIMIN in the global esports arena and build on their past successes and growth by participating in current and new esports verticals.
