Haval announces the extension of its relationship, which started in July 2020, with Virtus.pro, Russia’s most-titled eSports club, and CIS. The record results produced last year by the brands’ joint efforts have become the key reason for the new partnership.
The extension of the relationship between Haval and Virtus.pro in 2021 implies interaction not only in Dota 2, but also in CSGO, an equally common e-sports discipline, with the first roster of the club. Furthermore, Haval will continue to endorse broadcasts in Russia and the CIS of the largest esports tournaments for viewers. The longest-term project of this scale in the CIS remains cooperation with Virtus.pro and support for competitions.
Haval crossed nearly 17 million unique users in Russia and the CIS as a result of funding the first Virtus.pro-Dota 2 roster in 2020. This measure confirms that cybersportsmen and their followers are a genuinely advanced audience and are able to appreciate the advanced vehicle equipment and striking architecture rightfully.
