Australian esports organisation Chiefs Esports Club has welcomed telecommunications brand Boost Mobile as a supporting partner.
The announcement explains that the two parties will be collaborating in future, but there’s no word on what this entails as of yet.
Jason Haynes, General Manager of Boost Mobile Australia said: “Boost Mobile are proud to support one of the biggest teams in esports and are excited at what the future holds as we work closely with The Chiefs on future collaborations.”
Chiefs Esports Club is also sponsored by Logitech G, AORUS, NVIDIA, Red Bull, and Mwave Australia. The organisation fields teams in League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Rocket League, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Fortnite, and Street Fighter V.
Frank Li, Founder of The Chiefs Esports Club also commented: “The Chiefs are incredibly stoked for the opportunity to work with one of Australia’s leading telecommunications brands! Boost have a shared vision to deliver the best and most competitive plans for their customers. We’re privileged to be able to collaborate and share everything that Boost have to offer with our fans.
“The Chiefs will be competing at one of Australia’s largest ever esports events, the Melbourne Esports Open! Having qualified for our 7th Oceanic Pro League Grand Final in League of Legends, as well as taking the 1st seed in the eXTREMESLAND CS:GO competition, the MEO will be the perfect place to kick off our new and exciting partnership with Boost.”
Boost Mobile became the wireless partner of ELEAGUE in late 2017, and will act as the Official Telco Partner of the Melbourne Esports Open, a tournament in which Chiefs Esports Club will be competing at. The event will feature the League of Legends OPL Finals, Overwatch Contenders Australia Season 2 Finals, and Fortnite. The Melbourne Esports Open is a joint collaboration between TEG Live and ESL Australia, taking place over September 1st-2nd.
Esports Insider says: This is one in a long line of telecommunications companies sponsoring esports organisations, and we’re glad to see it’s an Australian side that’s on the receiving end this time. It’s hard to get too excited about the results of the deal since no real details have been enclosed at this time, though.
