According to this statement by CMG.ASIA, they have partnered with NRG to form NRG Asia, and subsequently bought GAM Esports.
With so much passion for esports in Southeast Asia, we thought Vietnam was the perfect place to launch NRG’s global expansion. Besides, Randy Dobson, CMG.ASIA Chairman, and Mark Mastrov, the founder of 24-Hour Fitness & co-founder of NRG Esports, have a history of successful collaborations going back over two decades.
Andy Miller, NRG Co-Founder and CEO
NRG Esports is a world-spanning organization with rosters in Apex Legends, Call of Duty, Overwatch, Rocket League, Valorant, and previously an NALCS (now just LCS) team in League of Legends.
With the expansion of NRG into Southeast Asia, we are excited to begin this new journey headquartered here in Vietnam. Starting off with the 5-time League of Legends VCS Champions, GAM, our goal is to elevate GAM from being Vietnam champions to leading World championship contenders by providing them additional resources and knowledge by top esport leaders. In addition, having the opportunity to work with an exceptional leader like Andy Miller, who has successfully created multiple championship esport teams, is beyond exciting for all of us. We can’t wait to bring a world championship back to Vietnam and make the motherland proud!

They even sponsor several speedrunners, most notably Pointcrow who has a large following on YouTube and Twitch and has achieved several world records. Now they’re back in the professional League of Legends scene.
