Interested in being our new Sponsor?


eSports is becoming more and more professional as a sport, and the industry is growing at a phenomenal rate. Many advertisers are now thinking of how to become involved and reaching their target groups through eSports sponsoring. The core target group is gaming enthusiasts aged 15-34 who are intrested in eSports streaming, and are hard to reach in other traditional media channels.

We at Havu Gaming aim to give brands new possibilities to be a part of this phenomenon. Our focus is to support our teams in offering them optimal conditions for gaming, and at the same time delivering relevant marketing opportunities for sponsoring brands.

We see long-term co-operation and sponsorship activation as key elements to a successful sponsorship co-operation. Therefore we do not only offer you traditional logo and stream visibility, but we focus on finding new kinds of digital activation opportunities in creating a successful joint marketing strategy with our partners. We take pride in coming from Finland and want to offer Finnish companies a chance to be a part of a journey to eSports world domination!

HAVU dominant in Assembly Summer 2017

HAVU Gaming has won all three Counter-Strike tournaments played at Assembly Summer in Helsinki.

In addition to the Finnish and Nordic championships, HAVU won the Asus ROG Masters Nordic qualifiers and qualified to the Asus ROG Masters EMEA qualifiers later on this month.

Assembly Summer 2017 Opening Day culminated at the Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre when the two rivals HAVU and iGame met in the Finnish Championship final. The first map was Inferno which was picked by HAVU. HAVU had a strong start on the T-side and went on to lead 13-2 at halftime and on the CT-side they won the pistol round and then won the match by picking up last two rounds (16-3). iGame did not even get the game on in the second map which was their pick Overpass, where HAVU secured the Finnish Championship with a convincing 16-5 and won their first Finnish champion title.

In the Asus ROG Masters Nordic qualifiers final HAVU met Vitalis. The first map was set to be Mirage, where HAVU quickly gained twelve rounds on the CT side and comfortably won the map 16-3. In Inferno, HAVU started strong on the T-side, but got into the trouble on the CT-side. Despite the 12-3 lead, the game went to the overtime but it wasn't enough for Vitalis to come back as HAVU closed it out with 19-16 win.

HAVU signs Sergej and expands to Hearthstone with Threat



In the beginning of April a new Finnish eSports organization called HAVU Gaming was founded. Today HAVU signed two Finnish eSports superstars and expanded to Hearthstone.

HAVU signed the most promising star of Finnish CS:GO scene: Jere “sergej” Salo. “During the spring we have had some difficulties with Taneli’s timetable. That led to frustration, since the other players were ready to play most of the time. Taneli and the team discussed about this issue and decided that it will be better for the team if Taneli will be replaced with a new player. Taneli will continue in our organization as a 6th player, partner and community manager. After sergej’s fantastic pcw and stand-in performances, we decided to sign him with HAVU. xartE will inherit the Captain’s cap.” – Toni “toNppa” Luhtapuro

Jesse ”KHRN” Grandell

Jere “sergej” Salo

Mikko ”xartE” Välimaa (Team Captain)

Timo ”REFLEX” Rintala

Aleksi ”Aleksib” Virolainen

Taneli ”disturbed” Veikkola (6th)

Toni “toNppa” Luhtapuro (coach)

Secondly, HAVU signed one the most consistent Hearthstone streamers in Finland: Mikael “Threat” Backman.

“I look forward to cooperate with HAVU. Joining HAVU will enable my long-time goal to become more professional eSports player and to compete among the best HS players in the world. Lets push some value.” - Mikael “Threat” Backman

“Our vision is to be number one eSports brand in Finland and to achieve this, we need to have more than one game in our menu. Mikael has superb personality, which have attracted solid twitch fan base in Finland. He is a goal orientated hard working individual who will achieve great things in his HS career” – Janne “Kuppi” Kuparinen
