It was not all that long ago that the term “computer nerd” conjured the image of a loner who disdained daylight and too much fresh air, and who preferred his own company in his own virtual world. But times have changed: Today, the best players in the world enjoy celebrity status. Over 188 million people watched eSports broadcasts in 2015. What was a sub-industry has grown into a multimillion-dollar market in recent years. Revenues generated by the international eSports industry were 748 million USD last year and are projected to grow to 1.9 billion dollars by 2018.*
eSports has become a global phenomenon and elite club G2 ESPORTS is up among the best. Founded in 2013, the club has become one of the top five clubs in the world within only a year. G2 ESPORTS’s declared goal is to become the most valuable brand in the international eSports scene. And who is better equipped to help achieve that than paysafecard, a global market leader in online prepaid payments loved and valued by gamers.
Sponsoring an elite club underscores even more clearly just how integral the competitive eSports scene and the sportsmanship of the digital entertainment world are to paysafecard. With G2 ESPORTS we have found a perfect partner who optimally complements our own approach of inhabiting a pioneering role and being successful. We are proud of this partnership because we share the same values of commitment and professionalism, and the courage to tread new, innovative paths.
eSports fans can now look forward to many exclusive gaming moments. The partnership with G2 ESPORTS allows us to promise fans and gamers around the world a bonanza of campaigns, promotions and special offers, as well as meet & greets at a whole range of events.
With this in mind: Keep calm & play on!
