Earlier this month, online payment provider Paysafecard was the main sponsor of the ESL Pro League CSGO Finals in London, organised by ESL. Now it’s committed to continue its sponsorship of the eSports premiere league throughout 2016.
The company hopes that sponsorship of the ESL One Cologne 2016 from July 8th to 10th, and an ESL One event at the Barclays Center in New York from October 1st to 2nd will get it closer to the eSports community.
Gamers can use Paysafecard’s 16-digital PIN to pay for digital in-game items without the need for a bank account or credit card.
CEO Udo Mueller told eSports News UK: “As a partner of ESL and a big supporter of the European eSports scene, Paysafecard is very pleased to announce that we have strengthened our partnership with ESL.
“Paysafecard makes it possible to pay for items and upgrades in seconds without having to leave a game. Gamers and eSports enthusiasts appreciate being able to concentrate on what’s important instead of peripherals, such as how to pay.”
Ulrich Schulze, VP of pro gaming at ESL, added: “Paysafecard is a valued sponsor of many ESL tournaments and we are thrilled to be working together again at the ESL One Cologne 2016. Paysafecard’s presence makes a significant contribution to every event of ours. Naturally, we are looking forward to seeing what the company will come up with for the tournament at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne.
