Riot Games the publisher of the most-played PC game in the world, recently announced a multi-year partnership with OPPO as the exclusive official global smartphone partner for League of LegendsⓇ Esports international events: The World Championship, the Mid-Season Invitational, and the All-Star Event. The multi-year partnership that will last until 2024 will begin at 2019, with Worlds scheduled to start on October 2 in Berlin and then conclude on November 10 in Paris.

This ground-breaking partnership marks OPPO’s first entry into Esports, further diversifying the innovative tech giant’s expanding sports and entertainment sponsorship portfolio.

“Esports is a fast-growing sport globally, and League of Legends has become a lifestyle of many young people in recent years,” said Brian Shen, OPPO Vice President and President of Global Marketing. “As a consumer-centered brand, OPPO always seeks the right way to communicate with young people. This is a great move for Riot and OPPO; the partnership will allow us to continue to strengthen our bond with the young as we join them in celebrating the victory of each game.”

“OPPO’s commitment to design and innovation are cornerstones in everything they do, and we are thrilled to have them bring their pioneering spirit to our global sport and fanbase,” said Naz Aletaha, Head of Global Esports Business Development and Partnerships for Riot Games. “To be OPPO’s first Esports league partner is a powerful testament to the resonance of League of Legends Esports, and we look forward to collaborating together to celebrate the sport, our fans, and the love of the game. ”

League of Legends joins OPPO’s roster of premier sport partners which includes Wimbledon, FC Barcelona, and the International Cricket Council, among others. This partnership puts OPPO at the center of the burgeoning global Esports market, as they join League of Legends Esports best-in-class partners like Mastercard, State Farm, Alienware, Secretlab, and Louis Vuitton.

Through this partnership, League of Legends will look to further enhance fans’ live event and viewing experiences around its marquee global sporting events, while OPPO’s long-term commitment to the industry allows them to engage with the growing passionate player base of the world’s top esport.

As the exclusive global smartphone partner for League of Legends esports, OPPO will have year-round activations centered around the sport’s three annual global tournaments: the Mid-Season Invitational, the All-Star Event, and the World Championship, which attracted 99.6 million unique viewers last season.
