Abtal360 has been specifically founded for the Arabic-speaking community, filling a gap in this section of the market.
The United States and South Korea dominate the gaming industry in terms of community, with European countries coming close behind.
Abtal360 is an organisation specialising in creating and distributing content, live streaming applications and events, plus e-sports events. Over our history, we’ve hosted and organised both online and offline gaming events.
Mainly focused on the FIFA franchise, Abtal360 aims to bring Arabic-speaking gamers together in a tight community. So far, we’ve got more than 15,000 players in what has become the strongest Arab-speaking community in the industry.
Most players and fans come from Saudi Arabia, but countries like the United Arab Emirates, Iraq, Egypt and Kuwait also have their fair share of representatives. About 30% of the entire community comes from other Arabic-speaking countries.
We’re available over multiple social media networks, with TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube dominating the charts. Our network of gaming enthusiasts reaches more than 300,000 followers.
Abtal360 upholds rigorous standards when it comes to live streaming. We’ve become known for organising events and plan further expansion to dominate the MENA region in terms of gaming.
Rise of the UAE gaming scene
The United Arab Emirates is witnessing a significant surge in the e-sports industry.
With governments investing heavily in technological and “soft” infrastructure, the country is attracting a range of e-sports talent.
These initiatives are essential components of a thriving, e-sports ecosystem. The UAE’s strong diversification strategy, which involves investing billions of dollars into various industries to diversify the economy, has resulted in allocating large sums of money to projects and sectors such as e-sports and gaming.
In terms of gamers, the MENA region can easily compete against other countries and communities. With all these, like everywhere else in the world, only a few players can make it big.
In fact, according to gaming professionals, out of millions of gamers, only a bunch can make a living.
While each event employs hundreds or even thousands of people, many are related to the organisation of the tournament, from camera operators to designers. Despite hundreds of gamers gathering to compete, only the top can make a difference in the later stages.
Further expansion and events
Abtal360 is aware of all this – and despite gathering views exceeding millions through its content, the people behind the organisation believe there’s much more to achieve.
Thus far, we’ve had the opportunity to be involved in some exceptional collaborations and tournaments. This includes partnerships and sponsored tournaments with companies like Gillette and Al Jazira Club.
In the private tournament sector, we’ve organised a tournament for SAIB Bank in Saudi Arabia. In terms of physical events, we made appearances at Expo 2020 Dubai and a few RedBull events.
In terms of private tournaments for the community itself, Abtal360 has also managed to get The Saudi Investment Bank involved.
But as the community is spread over more networks, Abtal360 is ready for expansion and wants to introduce a new gaming portal for gamers worldwide.
Specialised in content, live streaming, tournament management and events, Abtal360 will soon launch a website responsible for organising all sorts of online events for gamers. These competitions will undoubtedly come with their own set of prizes, attracting top-tier players and teams from around the world to compete.
We’ve already organised some of the most-intense FIFA competitions out there, but the new portal will take it to another level.
It’s an ambitious project which aims to dominate the gaming industry all over the world. In-house streamer @eighty8k will host and comment on the events as well, bringing fans closer to their favourite gamers.
A new portal for gaming competitions
Abtal360 has mainly partnered with large international organisations to host and organise events.
Partnering up with Gillette, for example, Abtal360 created some of the biggest FIFA events in the Arabic-speaking world.
More than 8,000 players joined, including world-renowned FIFA champion Dossary. The event brought in over 10 million impressions, which was only the beginning.
Apart from continuing its successful collaborations, Abtal360 aims to launch its own gaming portal soon for fans from all over the world to come together and compete against each other, with a primary focus on the Arabic-speaking world.
The project is still under development, but it has already garnered a tremendous amount of attention because of Abtal360’s current reputation as a tournament organiser. The organisation is nearing completion of the project and will soon announce the website’s launch.
If an organisation can host events and tournaments at such an impressive scale, its proprietary portal is likely to impress the audience with a completely new experience.
There are no official dates for release yet, but stay updated on Abtal360’s social media platforms for the latest news and official website announcement. We will also update this article once the site is available.
