Everton and England national team footballer Dominic Calvert-Lewin has officially signed with UK organization Semper Fortis Esports as a brand ambassador.
The organization officially announced the signing of the professional footballer on May 20, 2021, confirming speculation from earlier in the month.
Calvert-Lewin will be paid for his role at Semper Fortis through the form of warrants, which represent the right for him to purchase stock in the company after one year.
Through the newly signed deal, the striker will promote the team on his social media platforms and it’s stated that he will impart knowledge from his experience in sports with them.
A report from early in May 2021 claimed that both Calvert-Lewin and Manchester United footballer Harry Maguire were in discussions with Semper Fortis Esports. It’s unclear if he is set to join his England club teammate at the organization at the time of publication.

Semper Fortis is thrilled to announce it's very first brand ambassador appointment with Dominic Calvert-Lewin joining the team.
