  • 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.
