Paris Saint-Germain Esports is returning to Rocket League in style, thanks to a partnership with leading organisation Tundra Esports. Determined to break into the global elite, the two have their sights set on producing long term championship results together. Competing under the name PSG Tundra, the team will be leveraging the Paris Saint-Germain brand’s growing stature in gaming with the unique expertise of Tundra in esports performance and content creation to build a highly engaged global audience of fans.
The aim of this partnership is to create a competitive Rocket League team capable of winning every competition it enters and a brand that reflects the mainstream interests of its fans. The full team information including players and coach will be announced in due course.
Regarded as one of the most technically complex of video games, Rocket League quickly became an esports sensation. Released in July 2015, this football/driving hybrid is played by nearly 100 million people globally every month, which is an indication of its success with gaming and football fans.
Paris Saint-Germain Chief Brand Officer Fabien Allègre said: “We are delighted to be back in Rocket League, one of the most popular games in the world. We are anxious to see the PSG Tundra team succeed. In putting together our team Paris Saint-Germain is looking to make the most of its presence in Europe and to continue its expansion.
