WESG Oceania 2018 has announced two new partners for its upcoming event, Mwave and Indomie.
Mwave has been brought on as the official gaming PC partner of the upcoming tournament, whereas Indomie is the official event partner.
Indomie recently entered the esports industry when it became a partner of Australian Esports League’s university competition, the AEL University Cup. The brand is owned by Indofood Sukses Makmur Tbk, and this is now its second involvement in esports. Mware is an online computer store aimed at the Australian market that has sponsored ESL’s AU & NZ Championship.
WESG Oceania announced AOC Gaming as its monitor partner and Sennheiser as its official gaming headset partner in October. The event itself will take place on November 4th at the Supanova Adelaide.
WESG Oceania was launched by the Australian Esports League (AEL) in September through a partnership with Alisports. It acts as a new competition for those in Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands with tournaments for Dota 2, CS:GO, Hearthstone, and StarCraft II.
The event is open to all players and teams in the covered regions, where they can compete for AUD $30,000 (£16,000) and entry into the WESG World Finals, which will be held in March 2019 with a $5 million (£3.8 million) prize pool.
Esports Insider says: With WESG Oceania only being launched in the past few months, it’s great to see it has built up a roster of partners ahead of its inaugural event. Indomie’s increased involvement in the industry is promising, and the return of brands that are more exposed to the industry is just as encouraging. More support for regions that aren’t as strong as others when it comes to esports is cool, too.
