PSG and Chinese esports team co-brand Fifa Online outfit

Paris Saint-Germain has expanded its partnership with Chinese esports organisation LGD Gaming to form a Fifa Online team.

The two organisations had already partnered up earlier this year to co-brand a Dota 2 team, which came second in The International, an annual Dota 2 tournament.

Now they will compete together in Fifa Online 4, a free-to-play version of the Fifa series available exclusively in Southeast Asia. Three Chinese players and one French player will compete together in the team.

Paris Saint-Germain is the second team after Manchester City to enter a Fifa Online team in China.

PSG esports chief gaming officer, Yassine Jaada, said: “We have always been very well-received in Asia, especially in China. Our arrival on Fifa Online is very logical for Paris Saint-Germain, we are happy to start this new adventure hand in hand with LGD. Our eyes are already on 2019 and you can be sure that we are not done yet with our investments in China.”
