This important step solidifies the commitment of paysafecard, to promoting and expanding the eSports community, by not only offering sponsoring, but several global activations are also being introduced with added-value for the fans..
Through the partnership with ESL, paysafecard will drive forward three community projects for eSport fans all over the world:
The new "paysafecard Hall of Fame" will honour famous and well-versed personalities for their performance during their eSport career, as well as personalities, who have made a significant contribution to the industry's growth. This new award tradition will honour individual performers and outstanding activities in the field of eSport, with the aim of promoting professionalism and universal values in the industry. Four "paysafecard Hall of Fame" awards will be presented each year in a combination of a jury selection and a community vote.
"paysafecard Beat the Legends" will give a series of fans and entire fan teams the opportunity to test out their skills against professional pro-gamers or influencers. The opportunity to measure yourself against a professional will take place four times per year during the Grand Final of the National Championships in Germany, Poland,Brazil, Spain or Great Britain.
paysafecard will also honour the most passionate fans in eSports and offers them the opportunity to apply for the "paysafecard Ultimate Experience" package. Each packet includes: the travel expenses, two premium tickets, access to the Players Area and the backstage areas for the visitors, access to the VIP Lounge, Meet and Greet with pro-gamers and influencers on site and a tour that gives a look behind the scenes – everything will be documented by ESL with videos and photographs.
