Dignitas Esports: Teams, creators, achievements, financials, more

One of the most dominant organisations of all time, the mighty Dignitas. The name is synonymous with 'strength', 'pride' -- having that intangible.

The name is also constantly next to words like ‘champion’, ‘legacy’ and ‘history’ and there’s a reason for that

Established in 2003 and quickly establishing a name for themselves, the black and yellow brand has created a loyal following through the years.

Expanding to over 30 titles in total, with an almost 20-year tenure in the esports industry and with 18 total World Championships it’s impossible to not take the DIG as a threat.

Quickly cementing their legacy at the top and ultimately staying up there for the better half of almost two decades, making so much noise that the Philadelphia 76ers from the NBA acquired the organisation for its 13th year anniversary.
