Earlier this year we learned that YouPorn was looking to sign itself an eSports team to compete at professional gaming events. Spain based team, Play2Win managed to bag itself the sponsorship and has since been re-named as Team YP, they will even be making their debut this weekend at a Dota 2 tournament.
While TeamYP will be focusing on Dota 2 for now, the team did and may continue to play other titles under the Play2Win banner, such as League of Legends, Call of Duty and Hearthstone.
Play2Win's sponsorship with YouPorn will last six months according to the press release:
“We're so psyched to finally make our official entry into gaming and eSports,” said Brad Burns, YouPorn vice president. “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.”
Presumably if things go well for the team, its sponsorship will be renewed.
