Online payment provider Neosurf has signed a deal with ESE Entertainment to expand its efforts in esports on a global scale.
It has renewed its deal with Portuguese organisation K1CK Esports Club for the remainder of 2020, which is part of ESE Entertainment’s portfolio, as a result of the agreement.
Through the extension with K1CK Esports Club and the new deal with its parent company, Neosurf will remain as the title sponsor of the organisation’s League of Legends team. The roster competes in Ultraliga, a competition that’s part of the European Regional League network devised by Riot Games.
Konrad Wasiela, CEO of ESE Entertainment, spoke on the agreement: “First and foremost, Neosurf understands esports and gaming on a global scale. Their dedication to long term sustainable growth and excellence mirrors our core corporate values at ESE. We are thrilled to have Neosurf as the title sponsors to our League of Legends team K1CK. We can’t wait to unveil our future collaborations and business ventures we have planned with Neosurf.”
Neosurf has already established itself across multiple regions in esports through a number of partnerships. It has deals in place with British organisation Excel Esports, Australian ownership group Esports High Performance Centre, and Riot Games’ Oceanic Pro League. It first established its relationship with K1CK Esports Club in January of this year.
Andrea McGeachin, CCO of Neosurf, added: “The agreement with ESE Entertainment is an important step for Neosurf in building on our global expansion plans. Our sponsorship of K1CK Esports Club in Portugal and Poland has proved to be very successful and establishing a closer relationship with the overall ESE group is a logical move for us. We very much look forward to working with Konrad and his team as we move forward.”

Analysis firm Esports Charts has established a data-fueled partnership with Swedish organisation Ninjas in Pyjamas.
The agency will provide the organisation with analytical data in hopes to assist in its internal decision-making processes.
Ninjas in Pyjamas joins the likes of Astralis Group, Natus Vincere, and Alliance, all of which have established partnerships with Esports Charts to provide data analysis and statistics for events and the teams competing under their respective banners.
Artyom Odintsov, CEO of Esports Charts, spoke on the deal in a release: “Seemingly invisible and stealthy “ninjas” are the deadly rivals for every team in every discipline, wherever they participate. They, more than anyone else, clearly know their goals and move towards victory. Esports Charts, using ninja reflexes, will promptly and surgically react to the changing trends of the esports market and fully support Ninjas in Pyjamas with their data.”
2020 has certainly been a fruitful year for Esports Charts. Alongside new partnerships with a number of organisations, it has also secured deals with tournament organiser StarLadder and, more recently, Flashpoint.
Michael Tidebäck, Head of Partnerships at Ninjas in Pyjamas, added: “As esports continues down the path of professionalization, the value of accurate data grows exponentially. More is unquestionably better, and Esports Charts is market-leading when it comes to match tracking statistics.”
Esports Insider says: With plenty of organisations using its data already, Esports Charts joining forces with Ninjas in Pyjamas is another feather in its cap. Now armed with more data, the organisation is equipped with plenty of information to put its best foot forward moving forward.
