THIS IS WHY WE GAME
Usually when a business is born, there is some sort of business plan and strategy. We admit.... that is not the case here.
Originally known as the premier 5-Man and 8-Man Flag Football Leagues in Long Island, New York and Union City, New Jersey, our team was solely focused on getting Fall Flag Football Leagues kicked off in March earlier this year. When COVID-19 hit us hard in March, we had no other choice but to make the decision to postpone our Fall ‘20 Flag Football Season.
We made the decision to postpone everything on Thursday, March 19th of this year, 2020. On that same day, we wanted to deliver something unique for our flag football league players and thought of hosting a Madden ‘20 Tournament. Since Flag Football and Madden have close relations and the flag football league commissioner played Madden pretty often at the time, this was created to keep the players entertained during the early stages of quarantine and an excuse to play some more Madden. Registration was launched on Friday, March 20th. By Tournament Day, Sunday, March 22nd, we received 41 Sign-Ups.
After a successful first tournament, we began receiving a lot of inquiries to host tournaments for different video games. Several weeks later, we decided to dig deeper into the gaming community and offer a wide range of gaming tournaments outside of Madden ‘20, including: NBA 2k20 5v5 Pro Am, NBA 2K20 3v3 Park, Fifa ‘20, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 4v4, NHL ‘20, EASHL 3v3, MLB The Show, Fortnite, Rocket League, UFC 3, Rainbow Six Siege, Golf Club 2019, and the most recent and hottest tournament yet, 2v2 WarZone.
We love highlighting the achievements of individual gamers and teams, while showcasing our tournament champions. In our Flag Football Leagues, we were always known as extremely interactive, while offering unique features such as recording highlights of the games (consistently recording every play of each game at each field, then creating a YouTube Highlight Video each week throughout the entire 8-Game season) To efficiently translate that same level of interaction to the gaming community, we offer player interviews, live streams, a cool and creative champions page, and social media mentions for our tournament and league players. One of the coolest things we have done lately was initiating a Madden ‘20 Franchise League (one for PS4 and one for Xbox One). We hosted a Fantasy Draft Day for managers to draft their teams from scratch and we are in the midst of our Franchise League Season.
We look forward to seeing you in our upcoming Tournaments and Leagues, as we strive to continue to provide unique tournaments and leagues, while providing the same great customer service we began with back on March 22nd. Our Team is excited to continue diving into the gaming community and can confidently say we take pride in offering the most interactive Gaming Tournaments and Leagues you will ever find.
In February of 2021, we decided to change the official name to Icy Gamers.
