Online tournament platform Esports Players League (ESPL) has partnered with Warner Music (WM) Asia to bring music to esports players and fans around the world.
The deal will allow ESPL to embed Warner Music songs into its platform and drive awareness of those artists and their music to mass esports players and fans globally, and represents an important entry into the gaming space for WM Asia.
Additionally, the collaboration will also enable authentic and well-matched brand partnerships across ESPL’s partners, including video game publishers, developers and brands.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with ESPL. There’s a huge audience crossover straddling gaming and music, and ESPL’s community of grassroot esports players, along with their engaged fans, will help us to bring the two segments together. ESPL’s trusted ecosystem will also enable us to deliver an array of new, authentic, and bespoke experiences, with gamers forefront of mind, and we can’t wait for everyone to see and experience them for themselves,” Darren Ho, SVP Music Entertainment and Partnerships, WM Asia, said.
“Esports is the fastest growing industry in the digital age of entertainment. Warner Music has been active in the ever-changing landscape of today’s world and so this strategic partnership will bring a value proposition to both players and brands across our global network that we are confident will elevate amateur esports to another level,” Michael Broda, CEO and Co-Founder of ESPL, said.
