T-Mobile renews Overwatch partnership with Houston Outlaws

German telco T-Mobile has extended its partnership with esports organisation the Houston Outlaws, which competes in the Overwatch League (OWL).

The new deal will see the two parties continue to deliver the Un-carrier experience to fans across the league during the 2019 season.

T-Mobile will retain its position as the presenting partner of the Outlaws, while it will continue to serve as the team’s Official Wireless Partner.

Ryan Musselman, president of Outlaws owner Infinite Esports & Entertainment, said: “Last year T-Mobile helped us build a foundation toward solidifying Outlaws as a top OWL brand.

“Now, we get to build upon that foundation with enhanced focus and an even-stronger partnership, resulting in new experiences and capabilities for our fans.”

The partnership will continue to provide all fans with exclusive access to the team through the #OutlawsUnlimitedvideo series, along with events within the Houston Area.
