Online chess sensation Alexandra Botez and her equally electrifying sister Andrea Botez have both joined Texas-based esports biggie Team Envy, as content creators and streamers. Both the online chess maestros have been inducted with Team Envy as the inaugural talent.

A winning combination

The move is expected to boost the prospects for the organization, which is launching a creator network and ambassador program in a bid to expand and feature diverse cultural and gaming personalities in 2021. Having Alexandra makes sure shot sense as she is among a handful of women gamers in the world to achieve the rank of Woman FIDE Master in chess and was also the first female president of the Stanford University Chess Club.

Together, both sisters frequently live stream chess matches and other gameplay to thousands of online viewers on Twitch. Adding to their credentials is the fact that they also operate the BotezLive YouTube channel, where they share chess tips, gameplay challenges and lifestyle content to nearly 200,000 subscribers.

Chess as a game has been witnessing a positive transition globally, and the Botez sisters can well be credited with bringing a fresh perspective and novelty value to competitive gaming. To put the popularity of online chess into perspective, leading online chess platform Chess.com has added 2.8 million new users in November 2020, a record monthly high. Coupled with this, unit sales of chess sets grew more than 87% in the US in recent weeks as per data from the NPD Group.

Envy Gaming has established itself as one of the most successful gaming organizations across the globe and as the parent company of popular esports teams the Dallas Empire, the Dallas Fuel, and Team Envy, plans to develop original content series in partnership with the sisters and integrate Andrea and Alexandra into video content, livestream competitions and more.
