Movistar extends its sponsorship with Movistar KOI for three years

With this agreement, Movistar will celebrate ten years of pioneering support for eSports.

Telefónica Movistar has announced during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) that it will continue to support the Movistar KOI eSports team for three more years. The company will celebrate ten years of supporting the world of eSports since its pioneering entry into this field.

Movistar KOI is the result of a recent alliance with OverActive Media, a global gaming and eSports company listed on the Canadian stock exchange, and KOI, a club led by Ibai Llanos and Gerard Piqué. This is Movistar’s biggest project in the world of eSports to date, and the most ambitious in Spain and in Spanish-speaking countries.

KOI has stood out as one of the largest e-sports organisations in the world in terms of number of followers and fans. Its League of Legends games have reached historic audience records in the LVP Super League, with an average of more than 100,000 viewers in all its participations in broadcasts from the Twitch channels of the LVP and Ibai Llanos, the best known of all digital content creators in Spain.
