Zain Esports, the gaming arm of Zain Group, a leading provider of innovative technologies and digital lifestyle communications across the Middle East and Africa, has partnered with Riot Games MEA, one of the largest gaming publishers in the world. This collaboration will integrate Riot Games MEA content and licensed tournaments into the Zain Esports calendar.

The partnership was inaugurated with the launch party for the Middle East server of League of Legends, one of Riot’s most popular games. This event was held at 15 venues across eight countries in the region, with Zain Esports participating in five: Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Jordan, and Iraq. Over two days, more than 2,000 players participated, and the event reached over 2 million gaming and esports enthusiasts through the social media channels of Zain Esports, League of Legends Arabia, and over 20 influencers who took part in the events.

This initiative is part of Zain Esports’ ongoing efforts to connect gamers in the region to exclusive, region-wide events.

Malek Hammoud, Zain Group Chief Investment and Digital Transformation Officer, commented, “This partnership ensures that Zain Esports stays actively involved in enhancing the gaming experience for gamers in the region. We hope to advance this partnership to a point where this telco-publisher collaboration provides an even wider range of services to the gaming ecosystem, aligning with Zain Esports’ objective of becoming a major gaming powerhouse in the region.”

Tariq Al Kfaery, Head of Business Development and Partnerships at Riot Games ME, added, “We are thrilled with our partnership with Zain Esports for the launch parties of the League of Legends server that took place in multiple countries across the region. This collaboration represents a great milestone in our mission to enhance the gaming experience for our community.
