MSI Named ‘Official Gaming Partner’ for ESL Pro League Season 11 and 12

MSI To Revive MSI Gaming Arena and Mystery Box Segment

MSI, a world leading gaming brand, has extended its partnership with ESL, the world’s largest esports company, for ESL Pro League Seasons 11 and 12. As the Official Gaming Partner of ESL Pro League, MSI will sponsor Seasons 11 and 12 with cutting-edge gaming hardware, owning the monitor, PC, including motherboards and graphic cards, and laptop categories, and will work to captivate fans through engaging onsite activities.

“Our continued partnership with MSI has allowed players and fans at ESL tournaments to experience esports in unprecedented ways,” said Paul Brewer, SVP Brand Partnerships, ESL. “Onsite activations like the Mystery Box Segment and MSI Gaming Arena have engaged fans online and at past competitions, and we’re looking forward to bringing these experiences to ESL Pro League Season 11 and 12.”

As part of the partnership, MSI will again revive the popular Mystery Box Segment, where ESL talent will quiz two audience members with fun esports trivia questions onsite at the ESL Pro League Season 11 Finals in Denver, CO, on April 10-12 and subsequent Season 12 Finals. Whoever answers these questions correctly will then receive a “mystery box,” containing items provided by the MSI team. Prizes awarded in previous years included high-powered motherboards, graphics cards, and more.

The MSI Gaming Arena (MGA) will also return in 2020. Teams from North America, Europe, APAC, and CIS will have the opportunity to battle it out during online competition to become the top team in their region. From there, the top four teams will be invited to compete in front of a live audience at the MGA Grand Finals at the ESL Pro League Season 12 Finals later this year. The MGA Grand Finals will also be livestreamed on MSI’s social media accounts and official website.

“It has been amazing to partner with ESL. Our extended partnership in 2020 guarantees global players not merely another year of world-class gaming events but also incredible gamer-driven innovations that will reshape their gaming experiences,” says Sam Chern, VP Marketing, MSI.
