Barça Signs First Partnership Agreement for the eSports Division with Gamers Hub Media Events Europe
FC Barcelona takes another step towards establishing their esports division by signing their first-ever partnership deal in this sector with Gamers Hub Media Events Europe (GHME).
Within the framework of this alliance, GHME, which has extensive experience in organising online and offline esports tournaments, will be able to organise and manage gaming competitions and leagues that will bring together players from across the world, along with the Club.
Also, GHME will become the official training venue for Barça’s esports division, as the agreement foresees training and content creation for FC Barcelona esports players at the Barcelona International Gaming Centre (BIG C), the high-performance stadium in the Catalan capital, with which GHME partnered in September 2021.
The agreement between FC Barcelona and GHME comes soon after Barça joined the League of Legends (LOL) championship, the real-time strategy action game currently with the highest number of followers and audiences worldwide. Last December, FC Barcelona presented the roster that will start competing from January 2022 in the Superliga LOL, the highest-level tournament of this esports competition in Spain, organised by the Professional Video Games League (LVP, Grupo Mediapro).
