ESL has partnered with Indonesia's largest conglomerate, Salim Group to host the ESL Indonesia National Championships esports tournament.
2019 is starting to see a surge with corporates (and even startups) hopping on to the esports / gaming bandwagon.
A large part of this market's growth has been due to the massive adoption of mobile phones by consumers, where most of them play at least 1 mobile game.
ESL and Salim Group will also be working together on other Indonesian esports growth initiatives.
“We are very happy to have found a strategic partner interested in the growth of esports in Indonesia. Salim Group, with its strong worldwide reputation and history in Indonesia is a perfect fit for what we are aiming to build in the market for the years to come.”
