Johannesburg, South Africa, 11th of March 2019 – Off the back of their successful partnership with local esports organisations; White Rabbit Gaming and Sinister 5 in 2018, Debonairs Pizza is proud to announce that not only will they be continuing their relationship with these two teams, but they will also be partnering with Goliath Gaming and Ekasi Esports in March 2019.

Debonairs Pizza started their journey into gaming in 2018 hosting casual tournaments and sponsoring prizes on mobile as part of Arcade X. In addition to this, they sponsored well-known esports teams; Sinister 5 and White Rabbit Gaming, keeping their players well fed during the build-up to their tournaments.

In 2019 Debonairs Pizza is looking to grow further in this space by reaching out to other teams in esports as well as sponsoring the recently announced ACGL tournaments (with R10,000 in monthly prizes available).

The partnership seeks not only to make sure the teams are well fed during their boot camps this year, but also to help expose more people to what goes on behind the scenes with some of the professional esports teams in South Africa.

“Whether you’re a casual gamer or want to play competitively, whether you play at home or in a professional team, we wanted to add value to gamers everywhere with tournaments, content and of course the convenience of delicious Debonairs Pizza, so you don’t have to stop gaming for even a second” – Toni Joubert- Debonairs Pizza Marketing Executive.
