Fabien Allègre, Paris Saint-Germain’s Director of Merchandising and Brand Diversification, commented: “The agreement with PMU marks a turning point in the development of our esports project. We are delighted to have gained the confidence of such a major player in sport within just a few months of our launch.
“I am convinced that PMU’s expertise is going to enable us to further improve our performances and go to the next level.”
PMU’s Marketing Director Samuel Loiseau added: “We were already partners with Paris Saint-Germain on the football side and we are proud to extend our partnership and join the club in its ambitious esports project. We share the same ambition to become key players in the sector. PMU will also be partnering with numerous esports events in France all year round.”
