A we reported, YouPorn has been looking to get into the eSports arena since July of this year. At the time it seemed like somewhat of a joke made to the porn website’s many fans, who presumably are in the same demographic that enjoys eSports the most. However, today they have announced that a deal has been made and YouPorn will officially be sponsoring their own DOTA 2 team, dubbed Team YP. The team is based in Spain and formerly went by the name Play2Win.
We’re so psyched to finally make our official entry into gaming and eSports
Youporn’s official announcement reads “eSports fans rejoice, Team YP is here! It’s been a long time coming, but we’re very excited to announce YouPorn has officially thrown it’s hat into the competitive esports arena with it’s sponsorship of the newly formed, Spain-based DOTA2 team, Play2Win. The Team YP boys will be throwing down the gauntlet and making their official debut this Friday at the Gamergy DOTA2 Tournament in Madrid, Spain. Don’t miss it!”
The sponsorship is currently set to last for the next six months, but could go on for a while if the partnership is beneficial. Speaking about the sponsorship, Vice President of YouPorn Brad Burns said ““We’re so psyched to finally make our official entry into gaming and eSports. This partnership has been a long time coming, and I believe that with our backing, along with the expertise that each member of Team YP brings to the table on the virtual battlefield, we can succeed in tearing through the competition at this year’s Gamergy event.”
