Team Queso will compete in Superliga Orange and ESL Masters in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive divisions after a sponsorship expansion agreement with Telepizza
The Spanish eSports team founded by YouTuber Alvaro ‘Alvaro845’ González de Buitrago and Alicia ‘Alimorol’ Morote continues to grow at top speed. Since its creation in February 2017, sporting successes and extensive media coverage place Team Queso as a leader in its sector. The closeness of the club, the talent, the attitude and the enormous work and dedication of each and every one of its members have made of Team Queso a role model in the eSports sector. Not only that but they have also driven an explosive growth in the brief existence of the club.
In June 2018, Team Queso signed a sponsorship agreement with Telepizza, a Spanish multinational of the catering industry, with presence in 23 countries and more than 1,600 stores worldwide. Telepizza’s entry into the sector together with Team Queso marked a milestone as it was their first interaction with eSports. Telepizza thus joined Razer, the prestigious brand of peripherals and gaming phones as a sponsor of Team Queso.
Telepizza has perfectly understood the values of Team Queso and the result is a joint vision that consists of broadening horizons and continuing to conquer the eSports world through the closeness created by sharing home, pizza, attitude and passion for video games.
Along with the arrival of Telepizza to Team Queso, last June the club expanded into a new game and a new universe. Team Queso created a new division dedicated to Fortnite and thus broadened its horizons in the eSports industry beyond mobile devices. Months later, and after seeing the good result and commitment of all parties involved in the project, it is time to announce this sponsorship expansion focused on PC. Thanks to Telepizza, Team Queso will compete in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Alvaro845, CEO of Team Queso is hopeful and grateful: ‘Since we started working with Telepizza everything has gone swimmingly. We are extremely thankful for their support to Team Queso, we have fit in together perfectly from the very beginning and they have allowed us to explore new worlds and broaden our horizons. We really complement each other well and the future looks promising.’
That’s right, Team Queso has filled its home with tons of PCs and is ready to launch its CSGO team, which will compete in the next Superliga Orange and other competitions such as ESL Masters or ESEA Advanced. This is a turning point in the history of the club, which at the beginning focused exclusively on mobile games, and was extremely successful doing so, and now takes the final leap to PC and begins to compete with giants of the video game industry. ‘We are already a powerful brand with deep-rooted and well-known values, and now, together with Telepizza, we are looking for new horizons in which to continue growing’, stated Álvaro. As of the 28th of November, when the league begins, our new squad will start competing.
Team Queso and Telepizza share a common mindset and, needless to say, the goal is to win both the Superliga and the other leagues in which they will participate. To do so they have created a squad that will certainly meet everyone’s expectations, and which is eager to compete. The captain of the team will be Peter ‘Shhhack’ Belej, and he will be accompanied by Omar ‘Arki’ Chakkor, Michael ‘Emenk’ Belej, Miquel ‘Blastinho’ Llombart and Víctor ‘Xikii’ García. They are already known in the SLO, they have been competing together for a long time at the highest level and have the experience that Team Queso needs. ‘A new adventure, a new challenge, and we are very grateful to Team Queso and Telepizza for this opportunity. We will work very hard to win everything,’ said Shhhack.
Jorge Lombardía, Corporate Sales Manager of the Telepizza Group, sums up the relationship between Telepizza and Team Queso to perfection: ‘We have found our perfect partner to introduce ourselves and expand our presence in this promising industry. The team’s philosophy and their content align perfectly with our strategy, which is to be present in the leisure times of our clients and ensuring that wonderful things happen around our product when we gather together. All this has been made possible thanks to the technical support of Zenith Media, which proved that everything mentioned above was supported by the market studies they have carried out.’
