Mastercard has announced that it will “Thank the Fans” of League Of Legends Esports to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Worlds.

Mastercard Chief Marketing and Communications Officer Raja Rajamannar said:

“When Mastercard delivers experiences that people are passionate about, we see unequivocal joy and excitement among our consumers, and the passion League of Legends esports fans have for the game is undeniable.

I’m excited to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the esport by thanking the fans, players and shoutcasters by curating once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

This sport brings people of different backgrounds and ages from around the world together through a common interest – and that is priceless.”

Digital Priceless Experiences supporting Thank the Fans will begin launching on Priceless.com starting from 31 October 2020 at 6pm CST (Shanghai/Malaysia time), with new experiences unveiled hourly for ten hours, available for RSVP on a first-come, first-served basis.

Mastercard is simultaneously releasing a capsule collection on Priceless.com designed in partnership with Riot Games and gaming lifestyle brand CLOAK. Featuring a signature cloak, long sleeve t-shirt, duffel bag and puzzle, the collection’s design was inspired by the overall League of Legends esports 10th anniversary “Take Over” campaign with each item selling for US$10 to commemorate the occasion.
