CS:GO Sponsorship Measurement and Audience Analysis of ESL Pro League S10 Finals Odense 2019

ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals took place last weekend in Odense, which included some of the top competitive CS:GO teams. We wanted to understand which teams, brand sponsors, and audiences made up the conversation on social, and how much social value was generated.

We tracked all activity around the handles, hashtags, and phrases of ESL Pro League Odense 2019 from 12/6/19 – 12/9/19. Over the weekend, over 10K posts used the official #eslproleague hashtag. Impressions on posts about the event reached 383.6 million, helping generate an impression value of $2M and an engagement value of $111k.

We wanted to understand which teams generated the most activity across social. mouseports topped the list, with Tweets about the team generating over 146.4M impressions. This was followed by the FNATIC and Astralis which generated 138.8M and 76M impressions respectively.Esports Sponsorship Social Media Value esports teams esl pro league mouseports fnatic astralis team liquid

A number of endemic and non-endemic brands sponsored both the event as well as individual esports teams competing in the event. From esports jersey sponsorships to tournament rightsholders, brands leveraged a variety of activation strategies to generate awareness in the CS:GO audience. Intel, a main sponsor of the event, leveraged their sponsorship to earn over 8.9M impressions which added to the $50.5K in social value generated over the weekend.
