As we all know, the official recognition of e-Sports in China came on November 18, 2003, when the State General Administration of Sports officially approved e-Sports as the 99th official sporting event. With the rise of e-Sports in China, and the emergence of clubs all over the world, there was a rumor that a new e-Sports platform sponsor was working with Russian e-Sports club Virtus.pro to create a better tournament for the future, and now this rumor has been confirmed to be true.
First of all, let’s introduce Virtus.pro, also known as Vikings, VP, is a Russian e-Sports club founded in 2003. The club's most famous teams include Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, also known as the Polish Eagles. They are also the best team in the first season of the Dota Pro Tour. The VP League of Legends division won the 2017 League of Legends Euroleague (LCL) Spring Championship.
