REASONS TO INVEST

Reasons Icon

VR and esports are both growing quickly. VAL is at the perfect intersection of the two.

Reasons Icon

VAL has partnered with major game titles, including Beat Saber, Far Cry, The Walking Dead, and Creed. VAL has also worked with industry-leading companies such as HTC, HP, Ubisoft, and Meta.

Reasons Icon

Through collaboration with creators on YouTube and TikTok, VAL has experienced rapid revenue growth - operating income has increased 300% since 2020.

WELCOME TO VAL!

Virtual Athletics League (VAL) has been at the forefront of VR since the start. 


In 2018 we hosted the world’s first official Beat Saber tournament across 24 countries and have since gone on to collaborate with more than 60 game studios. Our team has generated over $969,000 in revenue since Jan 8th, 2018, by organizing tournaments, crafting strong marketing initiatives, and retailing game keys in the virtual reality space (sourcesourcesource).


We are building one of the strongest creator teams in VR, with creators who have millions of combined followers represented by VAL. 



At VAL, our goal is to build a sustainable VR ecosystem where developers have successful projects and players have access to both competitive and casual events. 



THE PROBLEM


Scaling Up For Demand

Portable and affordable virtual reality headsets have ushered in a new age of VR, leading to a massive spike in new players. However, this extended player base has found a need for larger-scale VR games and more competitive events. VR budgets remain small, and projects lacking funding often end up on the cutting room floor. Too many hidden gems never see mainstream success due to a lack of visibility. 


In short, VR is struggling to keep up with the exponential growth of its player base.  Some new VR players leave as they find the content and events to be lacking.


THE SOLUTION


What We Do 

VAL creates a robust ecosystem for VR players and game developers alike by fulfilling multiple critical roles in the VR industry. We provide services like marketing campaigns to boost game launch visibility and host competitive esports tournaments to energize new and existing VR communities.


To date, we’ve awarded over $100,000 in prize value to esports participants and amassed over 14 million views on YouTube and TikTok during the course of our marketing campaigns just in the last year on 2021 alone.



BUSINESS MODEL


VAL's current business model breaks down into three main categories:

  • Marketing services to gaming studios.
    • VAL acts as an intermediary between gaming studios and content creators. Our extensive network within the influencer space allows us to connect studios with creators that can meet a studio’s marketing needs and create innovative campaigns to drive sales, activity, and visibility. 
  • Tournament services. 
    • VAL hosts esport tournaments for major VR titles, largely through our biannual Summer and Winter Games. Organizing these events, as well as smaller standalone tournaments, helps game developers activate their communities and attracts more game purchases. 
  • One Arena game key sales.
    • We provide a VR game key store to facilitate game sales for our partner studios. We hope to continue expanding this revenue stream as we advance to help niche titles escape the clutter of larger key retailing platforms. One Arena also ensures competitive VR esports titles have sustainable resources for prize pools in the future.

With funding, our future goals include moving into publishing as well. We have established relationships with some of the top VR gaming studios and know what to look for in potential titles. Our experience has taught us how to leverage funding in a way that maximizes visibility and, ultimately, the profitability of new projects. Our expertise would allow us to make strategic investments in promising studios that can bring more high-quality VR content to the public. Our initial focus would be VR esports and VR fitness titles. 





THE MARKET


No More Growing Pains

People are looking for new and immersive ways to game, and VR fits that need. Between now and 2025, VR will remain the fastest-rising entertainment and media segment with revenues projected to rise at a 30.3% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to $6.9 billion,  according to a recent PwC report (page 15-16).  

The VR category is projected to continue to grow, and we are ready to grow with it.

OUR TRACTION


Revenues Have Increased Every Year

 

In the last four years, we have reached a number of milestones: 

  • We received funding from Boost VC.
  • We ran the first and only official worldwide Beat Saber tournament.
  • We achieved $969,000 in cumulative revenue.
  • We collaborated with over 60 game studios.
  • We produced content with over 60 gaming creators.
  • We delivered over $100,000 in prize value to participants.


While we are not the only VR esports league, we have the best creator content team for any VR esports league, a game store and tournament software.

WHY INVEST


Building on the Success

The goal of Virtual Athletics League has always been to become the centralized VR esports league of the future. However, we are taking careful and intentional steps to grow in a way that allows us to lay the foundation for the future of VR gaming as a whole. 


With the funding raised from this campaign, we’ll be seeking to 

  • Grow the size of our team.
  • Improve upon our existing tournament and league infrastructure.
  • Expand our current IP (One Arena and our tournament software).
  • Start some publishing efforts around VR esports and fitness.
  • Host more events, tournaments, and LAN’s.

VAL is primed to excel for years to come. VR is expanding by the day, and we are the company that will help to accelerate and accommodate that growth.


Whether you are a VR enthusiast, curious about the space, or simply looking for a return on your investment, join us in creating the esports company of the present and the future.

Official Rec Room Sponsorship + Tournament Software Season Beta Launch!

Rec Room (a VR company that raised 100 million last year) has a great league scene.  We launched our Rec Room league recently, but as of this last week we are now officially sponsored by Rec Room as well!

For our league players that means in game rewards, more recognition and support.

It also seems like there could be more exciting ways that Rec Room as a company could support the league scene. The playerbase of Rec Room and monthly active users has been huge. We see a lot of value in the subset of competitive players.

I general Rec Room is also amazing for casual players. We realized the worth of the Rec Room ecosystem, and with that also more than happy to support the VAL uprising creators that also do a lot of Rec Room content. Its a good combo. We are working on more here and may have other Rec Room news to unveil, but for now we hit one of our primary goals.

In a huge engineering milestone for us, we also rolled out our first beta launch of league and season features. We have wanted to launch league features since Jan 2021, but finally crossed that threshold. Player profiles, matches scheduling, score submissions, team standings, and more are now live and in real use for our Rec Room league.

That's a significant threshold as we have monthly active users who are now committed to a longer term format vs more periodic one one off tournaments.

NERF Ultimate Championship + VAL team up

We are so excited to announce we are teaming up with the developer Secret Location on their newest title: NERF Ultimate Championship!

Revisit classic NERF blasters or pick up new tech in this competitive, multiplayer game! Battle in stadiums where you can wall run, jump, and hear the roar of the crowd. This game is perfect for our mission of expanding VR competition and esports!

Not only are we hyped for NERF Ultimate Championship, we're excited to be working with Secret Location again. VAL and Secret Location have a good history. They were our first paid partnership for our national VR esports league all the way back in early 2018 with their title Blasters of the Universe.  

VAL Uprising is playing a huge part in this partnership, as we team up with them to create content and put together an exhibition creator event. Long-term, the NERF Ultimate Championship developers have big plans, and we are stoked to work together and see what's in store.

You can find out more about NERF Ultimate Championship, releasing August 25th, and join their Discord Server here: discord.gg/nerfvr

We are super excited to be working with the iconic NERF IP in the new medium of VR. This is a major new partnership for us and high caliber games like this are what moves this industry forward.

This is a major, historic event in VAL company history.

Awesome new partnership with Twilight Zone, Exorcist and Tarzan + material changes update - Extension and Finances

Thrilled to announce that we have teamed up with Fun Train VR, the VR game studio behind Twilight Zone VR, Exorcist VR and Tarzan VR!  This is a full service marketing agreement, and is slated to run through all of 2022.  

Twilight Zone VR is one of the premier launches in VR this year, and we are excited to be teaming up with Fun Train. Especially relevant to our last update is the fact that VAL uprising content creators will be helping make content for these titles. Twilight Zone VR is everything that narrative fans could want out of the sci-fi genre.

For the deal we are also producing creative assets, and we are quickly becoming the go to source for VR game devs for Facebook ads expertise. The size of the won contract is more than enough to put us over the 1 million cumulative mark.

We are very pleased with our progress on StartEngine so far! With that, we will be extending our campaign and we have submitted new finances. Submitting finances was a part of our annual filing and was expected. Revenue increased from 2020 to 2021 and while we haven't released specific forecasts, several exciting factors point to even faster growth in 2022.

Together, the extension + our update finances constitute our material change.

We remain committed to our equity crowdfunding campaign and we plan on this being our main investor fundraising strategy going forward.  I want to thank everyone who has already submitted committed investments!

HOW INVESTING WORKS

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDSWe want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!
SECUREYour info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!
DIVERSE INVESTMENTSInvest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
