Jeff Vinik invests in Los Angeles esports company aXiomatic

Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik has been investing in real estate, development and startups lately. Now he's back to investing in sports — esports that is. aXiomatic, a Los Angeles-based gaming and esports company, announced Vinik as an investor and co-chair Thursday.

"I've watched the growth of the esports industry for a number of years and the opportunity to become involved with the impressive group already assembled at aXiomatic is the ideal way for me to make an impact," Vinik said in a release. He did not quantify his investment.

aXiomatic was founded in September 2016 and is a majority owner of Team Liquid, a Los Angeles-based esports franchise. It is chaired by Vinik, Golden State Warriors co-owner Peter Guber and Monumental Sports & Entertainment founder Ted Leonsis.
