ESL and paysafe card have extended their partnership through the end of 2019. The partnership offers top billing for paysafe throughout the ESL ecosystem, including CS:GO and PUBG. 

Paysafe card is an online payment method, primarily in Europe, and offers online prepaid cards. Paysafe works at a variety of online outlets across the world, including gaming, online dating, and internet services.

The partnership with ESL includes the following:

  • The paysafe esports Hall of Fame, which “honour[s] well known accomplished personalities for their achievements during their esports
    careers, totaling three awards per year.
  • The paysafe Beat the Legends tournaments, which gives games the opportunity to compete against and with professional gamers. This event is held four times a year at the Grand Final of the National Championships.
  • Finally, the paysafe Ultimate Experience, which gives fans the opportunity to win a VIP package to large-scale ESL events.

Expanding Opportunities

Paysafe card is not the only credit or debit card getting in on esports action. Credit card company Mastercard announced a multiyear partnership with Riot Games last September, becoming the first Global Partner of League of Legends. Other credit card providers have also entered the space. Visa, for example, entered into a partnership with global esports brand SK Gaming in 2017.
