However, the Colonel Sanders network will not only support Hooked, but all young people who want to be part of KFC Gaming. This includes competitive gamers as well as content creators and game developers. 

They are willing to bet on Gaming in Venezuela, collaborating with brands that will support all those sponsored at a logistical level, as well as monetary compensation and a series of benefits from KFC, such as food and transportation when attending a event or tournament in the country or abroad.

The Venezuelan Gamer faces certain circumstances that limit him

It is well known that electricity and good internet connectivity is vital for any Gamer; however, for the Venezuelan, something that limits his potential is the lack of this.

On the other hand, year after year, the graphic requirement for a video game is greater, so adequate hardware is required for it (be it a PC or a console). In the country, the import of computer components and consoles has increased exponentially thanks to the demand that Gaming has begun to have since 2020.

KFC will also support its patrons with this limitation. Ana Julia Cuevas, Digital Marketing Coordinator for KFC Venezuela; She mentioned during the press conference that "In the event that young people need some space to broadcast in the capital city, or an additional team"

“KFC will have both our offices and the offices of another ally with a stable connection, or if they need a telephone or equipment for their PCs, we will give it to them so that they can compete and have what they need”
