The NBA 2K League is adding an expansion team via a partnership with DUX Gaming.
“This is a historic day as we welcome another premier international organization to the NBA 2K League family,” said NBA 2K League president Brendan Donohue, via Eric Gomez of ESPN.
“DUX Gaming has a demonstrated track record of growing its fan base in new and creative ways which makes it an ideal partner to help the NBA 2K League successfully expand to Latin America, where basketball and 2K are already incredibly popular. We’re thrilled that DUX Gaming will represent Mexico in the NBA 2K League for years to come.”
DUX Gaming’s untitled team will become the second non-U.S./Canada team in the 2K League; joining the Gen.G Tigers of Shanghai, China.
The NBA 2K League is described as “a joint venture between the NBA and Take-Two Interactive” and “a professional esports league featuring the best NBA 2K players in the world and is the first official esports league operated by a U.S. professional sports league.”
The 2022 NBA 2K League will tip-off in the spring of 2o22.
