ESL Gaming has announced it will be extending and expanding its existing partnership with ASUS and its Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand. This expansion will see ROG become the OEM partner of the ESL Pro League (EPL) for Season 16, and a wide range of broadcast segments from the company will air during the EPL matches during the season. ASUS joins the likes of Intel, 1xBET, and Monster Energy as one of the latest partners of EPL Season 16.
“As a partner of ESL Challenger and EPL Conference, ROG is committed to helping us lay the solid foundation needed for teams to reach the top. Expanding our partnership to also cover the Group Stage and Playoffs means that they join the teams and us all the way while we continue writing a history of legends, and we couldn’t have hoped for a better partner to join us on this journey.”
