Super League and OnePlus Partner for PUBG Mobile NA 2019-20 Season
Super League Gaming is partnering with Shenzhen-based smartphone manufacturer OnePlus for the 2019-20 North American season of PUBG Mobile.
It is Super League’s first mobile hardware sponsor is a pretty massive deal. If the tournament goes well, it can mean more partnerships with OnePlus, and sponsorships or partnerships with other major mobile hardware providers.
16 Cities, Plenty of Heated Battles
The global technology company OnePlus becomes the official smartphone sponsor for the PUBG Mobile in the 2019-20 season which will have local social gameplay nights and a quarterly “City Champs” league.
Battles will take place across 16 cities: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, Tampa Bay and Washington D.C.
These are all significant hubs for gaming and technology. OnePlus is known in the esports scene, as a partner sponsor of Fnatic. Fnatic’s a major org as well, with teams in nine sports. Super Gaming League is known for its growing esports tournament scene. Having such a significant sponsor shows trust in their ability to run tournaments.
I appreciate that this isn’t only in a few cities, but all across America. Success also means the Super League city reach would expand into other states and territories.
Super League PUBG Mobile Is Gaining Ground
It is a pretty huge tournament series, with how many cities will be available. Super League seems to push and foster making new friends and challenging gameplay. Mobile gaming makes social interaction easier than ever.
Ann Hand, Super League’s CEO had this to say:
“Super League is thrilled to welcome OnePlus as our first mobile hardware sponsor as part of our partnership with Tencent to bring premium competitive PUBG MOBILE experiences to mobile gamers across the U.S. Our social gameplay nights exemplify a shared commitment to positive and inclusive gameplay, while City Champs will feature top PUBG Mobile players in each major market, ensuring vibrant competition throughout our 2019-2020 Season.”
On top of that, they focus on amateur competition. So, you probably won’t see members of FaZe Clan, Fnatic, Virtus.Pro, etc. at events. Just regular people practicing and trying to prove their worth on the esports scene.
Kyle Kiang, OnePlus’ CMO discussed this partnership and its product:
“Super League offers direct access to a key customer base for OnePlus and provides a perfect complement to our professional esports partnerships. Many of our customers are PUBG Mobile gamers, so we work hard to make sure all of our devices deliver the best possible gameplay experience.”
I’m looking forward to seeing the results of this partnership. OnePlus make terrific phones, and Super League creates fun, positive events. Let’s see how this shakes out!
Super League has a proven track record of highlighting everyday people based on gameplay achievements and personal stories. I’m excited about the City Champs series of PUBG Mobile matches.
If you’re thinking of taking part, OnePlus will provide a free OnePlus phone to regional winners. If you want more information about the December 11 official PUBG Mobile event, visit the Super League website.
