Rushindra Sinha Talks About Future Career Opportunities for Global Esports' Players in the Org
Global Esports has already confirmed one import player, Jordan “AYRIN” He, in its Valorant International League roster, and five slots are still to be confirmed. With the addition of new players, the chances of current players making it to the final roster will shrink. As a result, a viewer asked Rushindra Sinha, founder and CEO of Global Esports, what would happen to the Global Esports players that won’t make it to the final roster. He replied that the players would still get an opportunity to join Global Esports in different capacities.

He explained that Rahul “Eminence” Hinduja, Garry “Mioken” Chiu, and Vatsal “Nghtmre2k” Uniyal have been an integral part of Global Esports since the beginning. However, they started as Overwatch professional players for Global Esports and are now in the lead management of the organization. Moreover, most of the management of Global Esports have been Esports players at some point.
Sinha said, “If you take the example of Rahul, Garry, and Vatsal, all these started as players in Global Esports. Today, Vatsal is head of Esports, Garry is head of content and social media, and Emi is head of production & broadcast and also one of the co-owners of the organization. Garry, Vatsal, and Jaideep Sood have vested equity in the organization. These guys have all become a part of building and creating what we are doing.”
Following this, he said that he expects the same with Global Esports’ Valorant and BGMI rosters. He said he wants them to grow and expand beyond just playing the game and become a part of the organization as analysts, coaches, or team managers if they don’t make it as a player.
Sinha said, “We want our next generation of players to do that as well. I see that with our current Valorant roster and maybe in the future with our BGMI roster. That’s what I see; that’s why we did not change our team for the last two years.” He added, “Because I want Global Esports to become their forever hope; if they can’t do it as players, I want them to step on the other side and do it as management, analyst, coach, or team manager. To be running the division, to be doing so much more, to have an opportunity to grow and expand beyond just playing the game.”
Following this, he said that playing a game professionally is just an entrance to the Esports industry and should not be the exit. He added that there are a lot of growth opportunities once you enter Esports.
Sinha said,“I don’t think anyone should retire and end their career in esports when they stop playing. I see it only grow from there; you become a creator, owner, and part of the ecosystem and do much more.”
