Super League has pioneered city teams in e-sports and established movie theaters as the ultimate arenas to experience some of the world’s most popular e-sports games in a new and social context. SLG has raised approximately $28M million in funding since 2014. Earlier investors include Cinemark, ET Capital, and Quadrant.

Offline commerce still represents 90% of the economy, and our collective goal at Cali Group is to aggregate offline data and link it to the online world.”
