Beyond NRG partners with the longest standing esports tournament, the ESL Premiership!
We are very proud to kickstart the Premiership spring season 2021 with ESL! At Beyond, we pride ourselves on collaborating and supporting emerging talent across gaming and esports. For ESL UK, it marks the first substantial drinks brand sponsorship in the tournament’s modern era.
The official partnership is commencing on 1st March with the CSGO spring Season. There will be a new mechanic for the tournament, labelled the ‘Beyond Clutch Moment.’ This will track and celebrate players who create ‘Clutch Moments’ in official competitions across the ESL Premiership broadcast and their social media channels. The inclusion of this new activity will highlight the individual excellence of players. Additionally, fans of the Premiership will also enjoy discounts on Beyond products by tuning into the broadcast for exclusive codes.
Dan Ellis, Partnerships Director at ESL UK, says, “This partnership comes at a time where there’s renewed focus on professionalising the health and nutritional options for the industry. From the off, Beyond NRG has approached local esports with an open mind and a fresh enthusiasm to help move these players forward through the path-to-pro system.”
Our Beyond CEO, Billy Webb, also commented on the partnership: “We can’t wait to prove ourselves in the industry as our energy drink genuinely helps people compete, whilst putting nutrition at the forefront of gamers minds. Our formula is something we worked on for over 18 months, tried and tested in in-game competitive situations, and now is the time for the world to experience what we have worked so hard on.”
