Aerial Powers Joins Team Liquid as Streamer and Diversity Ambassador

January 13 2021
We are holding ourselves back from making sports analogies as we announce WNBA champion Aerial Powers as an official Team Liquid streamer, brand ambassador, and diversity ambassador!

In her new role, Powers’s Powerzsurge channels will become part of Team Liquid’s streaming network. She will also elevate events, work with marketing partners, and become chair of Team Liquid’s recently formed Diversity & Inclusion Task Force. This position will have her strategizing with the counsel on how to make meaningful changes within the esports industry and championing the next generation of women gamers.

Notice we didn’t even say this was a slam dunk or a major score.

Instead, we have Team Liquid’s co-CEO Steven Arhancet saying that Powers “brings the same intensity and competitive drive that earned her a WNBA Championship to everything she does, including gaming — a mentality that makes her a perfect fit for Team Liquid’s winning culture.”

Team Liquid is honored to welcome Powers to the Team Liquid family, excited to collaborate on a shared vision to make gaming and esports diverse and inclusive.

“Early last year, I had the privilege of playing in Team Liquid’s Valorant Pro-Am, which was an exciting introduction to the organization,” Powers said. “Our relationship has continued to grow since then, a result of shared values and ambitions. I’m beyond eager to take this next step and collaborate with the organization to impact the culture.”

Powers used to be best-known for her WNBA achievements, including a WNBA championship while playing with the Washington Mystics. But recently, Powers has become one of the most popular gamers in professional sports, making her moves off the court just as impressive.

The WNBA small forward is a respected member of the Global Esports Federation’s Athletes and Players Commission. She also recently created and hosted Powerz Up, an international all-women 2K tourney. Powers has even provided commentary for the NBA 2K League when it aired on ESPN 2.

Last year, Powers launched her Twitch channel. This is where you can find her playing NBA 2K, Valorant, NASCAR Racing, Apex Legends, and Call of Duty. The avid gamer started playing games back when the N64 was all the rage and counts GoldenEye has one of her favorite games of all time. But Powers is currently looking toward the future, planning inspiring and awesome game content for Team Liquid’s fans.

And we’re more than happy to assist her in this vision. Okay, that one counts.
