Dignitas, the esports vertical of New Meta Entertainment, Inc. (NME), has announced a new partnership with QNTMPAY, a global digital bank designed to mitigate and improve upon the constraints of traditional banking. QNTMPAY will become the Official Digital Banking Partner of Dignitas, marking the challenger banking brand’s first entry into the professional video game industry.
QNTMPAY will be the exclusive naming rights partner of Dignitas’ competitive League of Legends teams, renaming the organization’s League Championship Series (LCS) team as ‘Dignitas QNTMPAY’ and the organization’s LCS Academy team as ‘DIG QNTM Academy’. The move marks the first naming rights partner in the LCS since the league franchised in 2018. Both team jerseys will feature prominent front-facing QNTMPAY branding, and each team’s esports athletes will be featured in a variety of content and experiential activations.
The partnership between Dignitas and QNTMPAY is built to support the highly engaged gaming audience’s need for faster, more rewarding, and convenient financial freedom. Collectively, QNTMPAY and Dignitas will work to solve the unnecessary costs and inefficiencies of traditional banking for the fast-moving, digital native gaming audience that demands innovative tools like payment curation, transparency around savings, and multi-currency wallets.
Dignitas, one of esports’ most historic brands, was founded in the United Kingdom in 2003. Since its acquisition by Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment in 2016, Dignitas has expanded globally with players and staff from twelve different countries including North America, South America, Europe and Asia. Dignitas is home to thirty-five World Champions in ten different esports titles.
Dignitas QNTMPAY will kick-off their LCS Summer Split on June 4th with a match against Evil Geniuses, broadcast on lolesports.com/watch. The team is hot off an exciting Spring Split, finishing the regular season in 5th place, just two wins behind first place and earning a spot in playoffs. DIG QNTM Academy will kick-off their LCS Summer Split on June 2nd, also against Evil Geniuses, airing on Twitch.tv/Academy.
The Dignitas QNTMPAY roster includes top lane Aaron “FakeGod” Lee, jungle Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett, mid lane Max “Soligo” Soong, bottom lane Toàn “Neo” Trần and Zaqueri “aphromoo” Black. Last split, despite fielding several rookies, the team surpassed expectations with a fifth place finish, just two wins short of first place. As the only all North American roster in the LCS, Dignitas QNTMPAY has become a fan-favorite among LCS fans.
