Starting on August 17, 28 teams will start competing for a place in the finals of the fourth season of ESL CS GO Pro League. The finals will conclude at the Ginásio do Ibirapuera in São Paulo, Brazil (Oct. 28 - 30). Recently, Kinguin has announced their sponsorship of the event.
Here’s what Ulrich Schulze, VP Pro Gaming at ESL had to say about this partnership:
“Kinguin are a strong proponent of esports and have been with us at multiple major events this year, including ESL One Frankfurt in the Commerzbank Arena. Their support of yet another ESL event means the world to us, and we are confident that together we will be able to achieve great things in this space.”
“We are thrilled to participate in yet another ESL event. Every tournament we visit is meticulously prepared for, and it is a pure joy to observe how eSports fans all around the world enjoy these events. Nothing makes us happier than being part of something bigger than all of us. We're making eSports history here and we cannot imagine a better partner to do it with than ESL,” added Viktor Wanli, Founder of Kinguin.
This is not the first time that these two companies collaborate to create another awesome event. Previously, Kinguin sponsored different ESL events that happened as a part of the established tournaments, such as Dreamhack, Intel Extreme Masters, and ESL Frankfurt. Throughout this year and during next year, Kinguin is going to support various ESL and Intel Extreme Masters events.
