IEM Announces Partnership With GFUEL
Today, Intel Extreme Masters announced their partnership with GFUEL for IEM Season 11, as well as their ticket sales for IEM Oakland, which will take place at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. on November 19-20.
This is one of GFUEL’s first moves as they aim to solidify their status as “The Official Energy Drink of Esports” by expanding out of just console esports. Since IEM represents PC games such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends and Starcraft 2, GFUEL will reach an extremely larger audience.
The deal includes, but is not limited to, GFUEL having sponsored booths and product sampling at stops throughout IEM Season 11.
For IEM Oakland, the Early Bird tickets will go on sale on May 23 for $135 for Premium Passes, $35 for Weekend Passes and $150 for Team Passes.
On July 1, ticket prices will go up to $145 for Premium Passes, $40 for Weekend Passes and $175 for Team Passes.
Premium Passes will include early entrance to Oracle Arena, signing session with pro players, a limited collectible event wristband, a goodie bag and seating in an exclusive premium lounge.
Weekend Passes come with a collectible wristband and a signing session with pro players. The Team Pass is five Weekend Passes for the price four.
