CEO & Founder, Area Academy and Ninjas In Pyjamas


Founded in 2000 by Tommy “Potti” Ingemarsson and Tootzi as a LAN-based clan, NiP are now recognised as the most renowned professional electronic sports brand in the world, most notably known for our history in the game of Counter-Strike.

We're proud to be one of the oldest, largest and most prolific professional competitive esports teams in the world. Our organisation has a history of competing at the top level across multiple titles, never happy with anything less than being best at any game we compete in. Whether it be from our headquarters in Sweden or from one of our other offices around the world, we do our utmost to fulfil our vision by providing our supporters with positive experiences to be remembered for life.

Ninjas in Pyjamas was the first professional esports team to launch our own gaming peripheral company, Xtrfy. The company has grown to become one of the world’s leading gaming hardware companies.

NiP is also active in the space of education within the esports industry through several initiatives, and through several initiatives in collaboration with the Swedish government. In addition to this, Ninjas in Pyjamas is also a founding member of the World Esports Association (WESA).
