Slingshot Readers,

We NEED your support. More specifically, the author of this article needs your support. If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat. If just half our readers gave 1 DOLLAR a month, one measly dollar, we could fund all the work from StuChiu, DeKay, Emily, Andrew (and even Vince). If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support. After all, you're what makes all this happen. Learn more

North American esports organizations Cloud9 and Team SoloMid announced Wednesday they have entered a partnership with American wireless network operator T-Mobile.

According to both team’s separate announcements, T-Mobile will be working with the team for content creation and future cooperative projects.

“At Cloud9, we’re always looking for partners who are going to elevate us to the next level and we’ve found just that,” Cloud9 CEO Jack Etienne said in a statement. “Partnering up with T-Mobile will allow us to work together on some really exciting projects that we can’t wait for the fans to see.”

This isn’t T-Mobile’s first jump into esports, as it partnered with Twitch in hosting events at the eSports Arena earlier this year during E3. The arena showcased a number of fighting games such as Street Fighter V, Injustice 2, and Tekken 7, which were streamed live on Twitch and featured a phone prize provided by T-Mobile. More recently, T-Mobile announced its sponsorship of Team USA for this year’s Overwatch World Cup.
