– Since joining Mixer, I’ve been tasked with building and supporting a healthy catalogue of content streamers that our viewers enjoy, across a multitude of platforms and experiences – including esports!
– Supporting GAMERZ through this partnership helps bring valued, new esports content to the Mixer catalogue for all to enjoy, said Mixer’s Director of Programming, Richard Winn.

– To partner with Microsoft, one of the world’s largest corporations, is a true milestone for any company, says Karl Mikael Cakste, CEO of Gamingzone Entertainment.
– We were pleasantly surprised when visiting Microsofts HQ in Seattle, a site larger than any average Swedish city, to meet the Mixer team and find true entrepreneurs as passionate as we are on bringing qualitative esports entertainment to the fans, says Cakste.
