Viperio and betting firm Luckbox announced a partnership on Monday that will last the esports organization’s run during the BLAST Paris Major EU RMR A in Copenhagen, Denmark.
According to the announcement, Luckbox will be Viperio’s official sponsor while they compete against squads in the RMR to snag a place in the final CS:GO Major in Paris. In return, the esports team will display the sports betting and casino provider’s brand on their jerseys and social media pages. Both parties are also required to make digital content together.
Regarding the new partnership, Luckbox’s head of communication, David Souza, commended Viperio for qualifying for the RMR and referred to the collaboration as a “great opportunity.”
“I’m a big Viperio fan, and having them join forces with Luckbox to create hype around the RMR and make memories for fans around the world is a great opportunity. I looked forward to seeing their journey on the path to Paris,” Souza said.
Viperio, established in 2013, are one of England’s most popular esports organizations. Besides a CS:GO squad, they support Rainbow Six Siege and League of Legends teams. Viperio and Into the Breach are the only UK-based esports teams to snag a place in the upcoming Major RMR.
The esports organization’s Founder and Managing Director, Christopher Sword, said, “I’m happy to welcome Luckbox as an official sponsor ahead of our Counter-Strike team’s run in the upcoming Regional Major Ranking event in Copenhagen this April.”
“It’s great to have a market leader like Luckbox back our team as we hope to challenge some of the biggest names on the planet and try to qualify for the last ever Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major.”
Not much information was shared concerning the partnership besides announcing Luckbox as the official sponsor. It is also unknown if the collaboration will extend past the upcoming RMR, as the release only mentioned the qualifiers.
The BLAST Paris Major EU RMR A is set to kick off in early April and will see Viperio take on top teams like FaZe Clan, Natus Vincere, Fnatic, Virtus.pro, and Sprout. The first eight squads will earn places in the Contender and Legend stages of the BLAST Paris Major.
