Envy Gaming, the Texas-based esports organisation, has signed a season-long partnership with Greyhound, the largest provider of intercity bus transportation in North America.
Greyhound will provide exclusive intercity bus transportation to Envy’s professional esports teams during the Overwatch League and Call of Duty League matches played in North Texas in 2020 and plans to launch the partnership with a gaming-themed fan lounge on a Greyhound bus at the Dallas Fuel Opening Weekend, February 8–9.
“When looking at the esports industry, we realized that our brands align in many ways: modernizing entertainment, utilizing new technologies, and delivering a product that’s accessible and convenient to the greatest number of people. We’re proud to be partnering with Envy Gaming and excited to provide fans across North America a better, more affordable travel option to see their favorite teams this season,” Lourdes Brown, Director of Marketing at Greyhound, said.
Greyhound’s buses have free WiFi and onboard entertainment allowing passengers to stream movies and television shows or play games from their own devices. Passengers can travel in comfort with extra legroom, leather seats and convenient power outlets to stay connected.
“Partnering with Greyhound gives us a chance to work with not only a fellow category leader based in Dallas, but one of the most iconic and well-known brands in travel in all of the world. Greyhound gets it–delivering modern amenities to enhance the customer experience is parallel in so many ways to the esports events we are producing in North Texas that blend the best of sports and entertainment,” Geoff Moore, President and COO of Envy Gaming, said.
