Wednesday 13th February 2019 – Leading online bookmaker Betway has renewed its partnership with ESL, the world’s largest esports company.
The extension, which includes an option to renew for another year, will see Betway remain as the exclusive betting sponsor of the largest CS:GO events on the circuit, including IEM Katowice, ESL One Cologne and Season 9 and 10 of the ESL Pro League, among others.
The partnership will continue to see Betway gaining exclusive “behind the scenes” access, VIP hospitality, in-stream and in-stadia branding, as well as host of experiential and digital assets.

At Betway we remain committed to reaching and entertaining even more esports fans around the globe.”
