Matthew Archambault

As Head of Esports Partnerships and Business Development for North America and OCENA at Riot Games, Matthew Archambault manages strategic partnerships, national sponsorships, media rights, and merchandising for the preeminent esports league in USA and Canada, the League Championship Series (LCS), and the North American competitive scene for VALORANT, Riot's new character-based tactical shooter.

Since joining Riot Games in 2017, Matt has more than doubled the roster of partners, adding Alienware, State Farm, Rocket Mortgage, Samsung and (most recently) Verizon to the LCS broadcast and live events. Behind the camera, he expanded the retail distribution of LCS jerseys and merchandise with Walmart, and spearheaded the LCS's partnership with ESPN to air our most recent Spring Playoffs and Finals on ESPN2 and the ESPN app.

Matt graduated from Villanova University and is an avid college hoops fan. When not watching LCS or playing golf, you’ll find him glued to every ‘Nova basketball game.
