DHL and ESL Gaming has announced that it has signed a multiyear extension of its current partnership that is set to include the full ESL CS:GO Pro Tour, all of ESL's Dota 2 properties, and the all-new ESL Mobile ecosystem.
DHL is also significantly expanding its range of tournaments from six in 2020 to over 2021, to ensure that it reaches a broad audience through 2021 and beyond.
"We are very happy to extend our partnership with DHL in what is an exciting time for our company and the esports community at large", said Ralf Reichert, CEO at ESL Gaming in a press release. "With the addition of 'ESL Mobile', we will be able to provide entertainment to fans across the globe and it's great to continue on this journey with DHL providing an essential business solution as our Official Logistics Partner."
Despite more news coming out about the ESL Mobile scene and the partnership with DHL set to be announced soon, we know that the logistics company will be providing "crucial support to the European operation of the ESL Mobile program".
"I am delighted that we as a logistics provider are part of the esports world and that our partnership has been extended covering a broader spectrum via 'ESL Mobile'", said Arjan Sissing, Head of Brand Marketing at Deutsche Post DHL Group. "DHL is celebrated and beloved by the ESL fan base which is the greatest compliment for a sponsor".
No word on the financials of the deal have been revealed as of yet.
