Prepaid online payment provider paysafecard has struck an agreement to become a sponsor of the ESL, the world’s most established e-sports company.
Under the deal, the terms of which were not disclosed, Skrill-owned paysafecard will support the ESL One stadium events in the German cities of Frankfurt and Cologne.
The two events, together with accompanying online tournaments, will attract approximately 225,000 players and 54,000 teams from regions around the world.
Udo Müller, chief executive officer of paysafecard, said: “Digital games have become a natural part of our everyday lives and paysafecard is a natural part of this virtual entertainment world.
“This is not surprising as paysafecard makes it possible to pay for items and upgrades in seconds without having to leave a game.
“Anyone who has a hobby will be able to appreciate being able to concentrate on what’s important instead of peripherals, such as how to pay.
“Our prepaid payment method makes a decisive contribution to this convenience.”
