Paypal has partnered with Rainbox Six Siege as the official payment platform for the esports. Their partnership will extend for a period of one year from November 2018 till November 2019. This partnership covers all regions including North America, EMEA, Asia Pacific and Latin America.
We are honoured to welcome PayPal as a key partner for our Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Pro League and Majors. This is a clear signal that the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six esports scene is constantly moving forward, attracting new partners who share our enthusiasm for esports. It will be great to see our partnership flourish in our upcoming events, including Rio de Janeiro, Montreal and events throughout 2019

This partnership is definitely interesting in a period when Rainbow Six Siege has seen increasing participation and numbers. Despite not being as famous as other titles, Rainbow Six Siege has carved a huge fan following for itself. The first event to be covered under this partnership is Pro League Season 8 Finals in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The partnership includes Season 9 and 10, the second edition of the Six Major as well as the Six Invitational 2019.
PayPal is the ultimate upgrade companion for the Rainbow Six: Siege community, allowing players to checkout securely and conveniently so they can worry less and experience more. As the top cited preferred way to pay for gaming content, in-game items and content creator subscriptions, we’re excited to collaborate with the Ubisoft team to provide the gaming community with great experiences, including exclusive community events and deals on the Ubisoft Store in the upcoming year.

Paypal is a huge step for Rainbow Six Siege
Paypal’s foray into esports has not been as successful as other payment options. With the fast growth of esports, we are witnessing many brands and companies leverage this growth for their brand.
For Rainbow Six Siege, this partnership is huge news. With a big name like Paypal joining their ranks, Rainbow Six can hope for more investments in the near future. We will wait and watch how the scene develops in the next one year. Hopefully, Paypal will renew their partnership with the game in 2019.
