British esports organisation Viperio has partnered with betting company Luckbox for the team’s upcoming appearance in the BLAST Paris Major EU RMR A (Regional Major Rankings).
Luckbox will become Viperio’s official sponsor during the RMR, and Luckbox branding will appear on Viperio Jerseys and social media channels. The two parties will also produce digital content.
Viperio is one of the better-known esports organisations in Great Britain. Established in 2013 in Newcastle upon Tyne, the company has teams in CS:GO, League of Legends, and Rainbow Six: Siege. The organisation is one of the only two UK-based teams to secure a spot in the upcoming Major RMR, the other being Into the Breach.
As for the partnership with Luckbox, neither party shared much detail besides announcing that Luckbox will act as the official sponsor for the British organisation. Interestingly, the release mentions that the partnership is focused on the upcoming RMR, but there is no mention of whether it will continue after the qualifiers.
The RMR itself will take place in Copenhagen in early April 2023. Viperio will be joined by the likes of Fnatic, Natus Vincere, FaZe Clan, Sprout, and Virtus.pro, with the first eight teams qualifying for the Contender and Legend Major stages.
Viperio Founder Christopher Sword commented: “I’m happy to welcome Luckbox as an official sponsor ahead of our Counter-Strike team’s run in the upcoming Regional Major Ranking event in Copenhagen this April. It’s great to have a market leader like Luckbox back our team as we hope to challenge some of the biggest names on the planet and try to qualify for the last-ever Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major.”
