Great news for gaming aficionados: the Starcraft 2 crowd is now sponsored by Shopify. What does it mean?
Well, the future of gaming, more precisely ESL Pro Tour StarCraft II, looks great. The leading e-commerce company in the northern hemisphere (other than Amazon, just kidding) will be a key sponsor of the ESL Pro Tour StarCraft II, including Intel® Extreme Masters Katowice 2022, and you can take that to the bank!
Shopify is the official sponsor of the weekly ESL Open Cups, a competition that allows all talented/aspiring gamers to play in weekly tournaments, and obviously, earn some money in the process while having the time of their lives.
To quote from the official press release:
- Asia, Europe, and Americas Open Cups will all increase from a $400 weekly prize pool to $800, until the end of IEM Katowice 2022.
- They will also pay out more places than ever before, increasing from the places that earn prize more from Top 4 to the Top 8 finishers.
Shopify is also sponsoring the TLNET Map Contest, and another great news for our gaming-aficionados is that the Signature Series is back with a vengeance.
