ONE eSports is a Singapore-based esports tournament organiser. As part of a joint venture between Dentsu, Inc. and ONE Championship, ONE eSports was launched in July 2019 with the aim to be Asia’s largest global eSports Championship Series.
ONE eSports boasts Razer and Singtel as its key sponsors from Singapore.
Since 2019, ONE eSports has tapped on Razer and ONE Championship to grow its viewer base as research has shown there is affinity between consumers of both product categories.
ONE eSports has heavily marketed to ticket holders of ONE Championship fight events and gamers using Razer’s gears by offering aggressive discounts and promotions for ONE eSports events.
In addition, Singtel Group’s platforms, telco data bundle plans, as well as online and offline payment services are used to facilitate joint e-sports marketing efforts, production and distribution of e-sports content.
