This is far from Neosurf’s first esports engagement. The company, which launched its first products in 2004, has partnered with both the UK’s Excel Esports and Portugal’s K1ck eSports Club in recent months. Its work with Excel saw the launch of the Neosurf Cup, an exhibition match between Excel and Misfits Gaming that took place at Twickenham in January.

Neosurf has also stepped up its activity specifically in Australian esports, where it struck a multi-year deal with the EHPC last October. The deal saw it become the sponsor of four local teams: Dire Wolves, N8 Esports, Team Oracle, and Supa-Stellar.

Esports Insider says: Neosurf has really levelled up its game within the esports industry throughout the last few months. Its latest deal with Riot Games’ OPL will solidify its position at the forefront of the brands tied to League of Legends in the Oceanic region.
