Fiorentina eSports was set up in February 2019 in partnership with Hexon eSports, an emerging force in the sector with world-class gamers and coaches on its books.
The Viola eSports division began with the Pro Players: Giovanni “Giovhy69” Salvaggio. The team was further bolstered in 2020 with the additions of Stefano "Stiven97" Manganini in April and Nicola "Nicaldan" Lillo on 24 September.
“Our move into eSports represents another step forward for our club as we look to focus increasingly on digital and the world of eSports, which are so popular with the younger generations around the world,” said Fiorentina general director Joe Barone. “With the support of a young, successful company like Hexon, we’ll build a competitive team which helps to promote Fiorentina among international eSports communities, bringing these people closer to our club.”
