The groundbreaking partnership will see the digital telco appear on all major ESL-owned gaming & esports IP in Australia.
Sydney, Australia – February 7, 2022. Today ESL Australia, local division of the world’s largest esports company, and Circles.Life, one of the fastest-growing digital telco companies in Asia-Pacific, announced a groundbreaking partnership that will see Circles.Life become the major Telco partner of ESL in Australia. Through the year, Circles.Life will feature in the largest esports leagues & events that ESL operates in Australia, including the ESL ANZ Champs, League of Legends Circuit Oceania (LCO), DreamHack Melbourne and multiple yet-to-be announced products.
Across ESL’s professional leagues, the ESL ANZ Champs (Australia & New Zealand’s largest Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competition), and the LCO (the premier League of Legends league in Oceania, operated by ESL and Guinevere Capital), Circles.Life will feature as a premium partner, with brand integration across broadcast and social media content. Circles will be supporting player focused content, enabling fans to get to better know the personalities and stories of players they watch every week.
The partnership will also expand into the broader live streaming & gaming space, where ESL & Circles will support local content creators across the year. The partnership will look to create opportunities for fans to better connect with some of their favourite streamers, both online and at live events including DreamHack Melbourne. Additionally, at ESL’s live events in Australia, Circles.Life will be enabling fans to better engage with the event through immersive content.
Gaming fans in the region can expect a number of exciting announcements later in the year as Circles.Life will be headlining new ESL products aimed at grass roots esports and the wider gaming community. Further details will be announced on @ESLAustralia social media.
“Across ESL products in 2022, our goal is to hero the communities that make up the gaming & esports ecosystem here in Australia & New Zealand – linking players to their fans, streamers to their viewers, and deepening that facet of engagement. Through this partnership, we’re able to take that to the next level and commit to a wide range of new integrations that will see Circles.Life championed in front of a massive audience.” Said Graeme Du Toit, Head of Sales & Marketing at ESL Australia. “Circles.Life share this vision and want to empower everyone to feel a bit more like the main character in their own RPG. We’re very excited to work with them to make that happen.”
“We’re thrilled to be working with ESL and the wider gaming community. For us, this is about bringing a shared passion to life with content that adds value to the experience. We’re going to do what we do best – connect people. Whether that is through content featuring well known champions or by helping to discover up-and-coming stars in the making, we’re going to be there to make each event bigger and better than ever before” Emilie Chell, Head of Marketing, Growth and Experience at Circles.Life.
