Collaboration aims to create “the ultimate destination for esports and music fans.”

Universal Music Group’s (UMG) Central Europe announced a multi-year partnership with esports company ESL that includes the launch of a joint record label.

The tie-up will see the label team scout out and sign promising artists, who will then be promoted through ESL’s global tournaments and channels. Artists picked up by the label will also perform at live competitive gaming tournaments during half-time shows and prior to grand finals around the world.

Bernhard Mogk, vice president of global sales and business development for the ESL, added: “Music is a universal language and, like gaming, one of the key-pillars of pop-culture. Over the last couple years, live music acts have become an integral part of our global tournaments.

“We are looking forward to giving new artists and talent a new platform to perform on and to provide even more entertainment to our fans, both on-site and for everyone watching our live streams around the world.”
