German esports and gaming organisation SK Gaming has partnered with digital collectibles company Kolex ahead of Gamescom 2023, set to take place in Cologne, Germany.

The two companies will create an SK Gaming Signature Series Collection of digital trading cards, allowing fans to collect both real-world and digital versions of trading cards featuring SK Gaming players and creators. The two companies have also planned activations during Gamescom, including a signing session powered by Cherry Xtrfy.

Kolex is a well-known digital collectible company specialising in creating esports trading cards. The company, which was initially called Epics.gg prior to its rebranding, offers a platform for trading digital collectibles in several games, including CS:GO and PUBG. Kolex has also worked with content creators to create collectibles in the past.

Perhaps the most notable partnership for Kolex is the one with esports tournament operator ESL that was first announced in 2022. The two companies work to create collectibles for ESL-operated events such as IEM Katowice and IEM Cologne. ESL also sells Kolex physical cards through their internet store.

The partnership with SK Gaming will be initially focused on the upcoming Gamescom event. The autograph session with SK Gaming players, supported by peripherals brand Cherry XTRFY, will see over 2,500 signature cards given out to fans, each one containing a digital collectible in addition to the physical card.

Founded in 1997, SK Gaming is a German esports organisation that competes in League of Legends, Rocket League and Brawl Stars. The organisation is currently competing in the 2023 LEC Season Finals.

Alexander Müller, CEO of SK Gaming, commented on the partnership: “This collaboration of our esports legacy and Kolex’s authentication technology aligns perfectly with our commitment to continuous innovation. The collection is a testament to our appreciation of our fans and our dedication to delivering to them unique and valuable experiences.”
