Esports betting firm Midnite has been announced as the title sponsor for the Nine to Five Cup 7 after extending its partnership with tournament organiser Relog Media.
As a result of the extension, the CS:GO tournament series will once again be branded in Midnite’s colours, similarly to the Nine to Five Cup 6 which occurred last month.
Relog Media’s inventory will be powered by Midnite throughout the competition, which commenced on November 30th, with a new player webcam display set to be used during broadcasts.
Relog Media has once again announced that GRID will remain as the official data partner for Nine to Five.
“It’s a pleasure for Midnite to partner again with the Nine to Five Cup, and support an excellent tournament perfect for betting. We loved the presentation and live stream and look forward to another exciting event.“ Commented Sujoy Roy, Marketing Director at Midnite.
The Nine to Five Cup 7 will follow the same format as Relog Media’s prior editions with its $50,000 (~£38,478) prize pool being competed for through three stages: Dawn Stage, Swiss Stage, Playoffs Stage. The tournament is set to conclude on December 16th.
The tournament is set to be the final Nine to Five Cup of 2020, ending Relog Media’s string of 2020 competitions after six months. Information as to plans for the Nine to Five Cup in 2021 has yet to be disclosed.
Milutin Pecic, CEO of Relog Media added: “We are thrilled to continue our cooperation with MIDNITE on yet another 9 to 5 cup. Their continuous support is helping us deliver great content to the community. We are proud to be ending the years content with their brand part of our event.”
Esports Insider says: Midnite continuing to partner with the Nine to Five Cup for its final tournament of 2020 is great news for all parties involved. Midnite clearly feels that its sponsorship in Cup 6 was received well enough that it will extend its contract, whilst Relog Media will be happy to be partnering with yet another well-known brand in the esports scene.
