Ahead of its busy 2019 schedule, tournament organiser DreamHack has announced a new partnership with team management platform Esport-Management.
The deal includes head sponsorship for events such as CORSAIR DreamHack Masters, DreamHack Open, DreamHack Pro Circuit, and DreamLeague throughout the year.
Marcus Lindmark, CEO of DreamHack discussed the partnership: “We at DreamHack are very pleased to have reached an agreement with Esport-Management. They are helping build the tools to help the next generation of esport superstars, and we’re excited to be a part of that journey. Now we’re looking forward to an exciting 2019 together and we are sure that this is only beginning of a successful and long-term partnership.”
Starting with DreamHack Leipzig over February 15-17th, Esport-Management will be a sponsor and global partner for the DreamHack Pro Circuit. G2 Esports partnered with the platform in October, with content being one of the main collaborative efforts between the two parties.
Mike Hessabi, CEO of Esport-Management also commented: “We are extremely proud to have the privilege of being the global exclusive partner (in our category) of DreamHack. Together, Esport-Management and DreamHack share the same passion for Esports and video gaming. As we help amateur players improve their skills and progressing their game, our partnership with DreamHack provides a wonderful opportunity for our members to participate first-hand in DreamHack events and festivals. It also enables Esport-Management to be at the forefront of key events attracting some of the most passionate Esport players and gamers.”
Earlier this month DreamHack unveiled its full roster of events for 2019, taking place over three continents – demonstrating the company’s efforts in expanding its reach behind Europe and North America.
Esports Insider says: Securing both G2 Esports and now DreamHack as partners are big moves for Esport-Management, seemingly proving that there’s definite benefit to its platform. It’ll be interesting to see if the two parties end up working together beyond a sponsorship in the future, too.
