The Call Of Duty League has rolled out the red sponsorship carpet today as they have officially announced their partners for the inaugural 2020 season. The four big brands that will be representing this year are ASTRO Gaming, PlayStation, MNT DEW AMP GAME FUEL, the U.S. Airforce, and SCUF Gaming. Most of the deals go for at least two years, some all the way through 2022. We expect Activision Blizzard will be picking up more along the way, as long as they don't conflict with current sponsors. All five should cover the majority of bumpers and sponsored segments within the pre-show and the main games as well. We have a few quotes from three of the companies to mark the occasion.
"We're honored to continue our partnership with the Call of Duty League in celebration of players around the world and their love of the iconic game," said Erin Chin, Senior Director, Marketing, MTN DEW. "As MTN DEW AMP GAME FUEL enters another banner year, we're thrilled to keep delivering unique partnerships and best-in-class experiences for the gamers and fans who inspired the product's creation."
"We're proud to extend our long-term partnership with Call of Duty esports in the new Call of Duty League. We're committed to providing all competitors with immersive game audio and precise voice communication," said Aron Drayer, Vice President of Marketing at ASTRO Gaming. "We're also excited about creating a special edition headset for the league and all of the new city-based teams."
"Both esports and Call of Duty are deeply rooted in our core DNA so we are delighted that the day has finally come for Call of Duty League to launch. We couldn't be prouder or more excited to be a foundational partner and to continue innovating the way gamers use a controller to help them perform at the highest level," said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Founder of SCUF Gaming. "Since inception, we've been dedicated to supporting the growth of esports; creating the features that have made SCUF an extension of the player to maximize their performance. After 17 years in the making, we're excited that Call of Duty League Launch Weekend has finally come."
