Viperio take pride at being a leading player in esports in the North East of England.

From Morpeth, Matt has grown up, studied and worked in the North East all of his life. Matt went to Northumbria University to study Computer Science, before working for globally recognised firms including DXC Technology & British Engines.

5. Connor “Boony’ Boon, SFV Player for Viperio

6. Hybrid, Creator/Streamer at Viperio

The majority of long time followers know who Aaron is already, but as the second longest serving Viperio member after the Founder, Aaron is a prime example of a talent that has grown alongside the brand.

From North Shields, Aaron is a rising star within Fortnite content creation. His YouTube channel, which now has over 17,000+ subscribers, is a hub for the latest battle royale updates.

Viperio constantly look to recruit & retain talent from the North East, whether esports players, creators or staff. We’re committed to becoming a brand that represents the region, and hope to continue to welcome talent from close to home.
