Global technology brand OPPO is partnering with Riot Games in bringing the League of Legends World Championship 2021 (S11). The partnership is part of the company’s multi-year deal signed with Riot Games in 2019.
This year, OPPO will present the most valuable players awards to pro players who dominate the battlegrounds with otherworldly performances in the finals. The company will also bring gaming highlights as well as interviews of the pro players and the teams to the audience.
“League of Legends provides OPPO a platform to let more gamers around the world get to know us better,” for our users,” said William Liu, VP and president of Global Marketing at OPPO. “More importantly, the unyielding spirit of the pro players is similar to OPPO’s relentless strive for innovation when it comes to products and technology.”
The League of Legends World Championship 2021 (S11) will see elite teams from 11 countries and regions to the most high-stakes tournament ever. The finals is on Nov. 6th in Iceland.
“Based on the successful partnership last year, we are thrilled to have OPPO sponsor the League of Legends World Championship 2021,” said John Needham, Global Head of Esports at Riot Games. “As the first global smartphone partner for the game, OPPO has become one of the most impressive tech brands among global esports players. We look forward to seeing what OPPO will bring to the audience in the finals.”
In the Philippines, OPPO continuously expanded its support to various esports and gaming talents, especially in one of the country’s popular games League of Legends Wild Rift, from its initial roster of gamers such as Gloco Gaming, now adding popular names in the league, Kang Dupet, Kaisaya, Newspade, Charess, Jillian Santos, and Mirmoo.
