Athena Signs with Envy Gaming
We can confirm that Athena has been signed by Envy Gaming, a major Esports and Entertainment organization. Her signing adds to Envy's growing network of influencers and content creators, some of whom include JustaMinx, BobbyPoff, and the Botez Sisters. In relation to the Athena-Envy signing, the organization's Chief Content Officer, Andrew Peterman, said the following:
“Athena is a great fit for the type of culture we’re looking to build... She’s one of the most popular Rocket League creators in the world, but remains relatable and down-to-earth. We’re excited to have her join Envy and grow with us.”
It's a pretty big moment for fans of Athena, whom is not only a skilled streamer, but a musician and skilled Rocket League player. Despite of her expertise in Rocket League, Athena popularized an amusing move - appropriately termed the "Athena Flick" - that involves a player missing the goal in an unbelievably spectacular way.
This acquisition is unbelievably exciting, with RLCS 11 on the horizon and Athena's history of competing successfully in The Grid, and her skills as a hilarious and incredibly entertaining Esports commentator. We have to admit, it is a stroke of genious for Envy Gaming to sign Athena, and we are sure that she will continue to grow and provide us with her signature wit, humor and irreverence under the Envy Gaming banner.
