Tennis Clash will now continue to host the Roland-Garros eSeries by BNP Paribas, the largest eTennis competition in the world, thanks to an extension of the licensing deal Wildlife Studios has with the Fédération Française de Tennis (FFT). The new agreement enables Tennis Clash to establish itself as the first official Roland-Garros mobile game.
Tennis Clash and Fédération Française de Tennis will continue providing esports experience
Early in 2022, Wildlife Studios signed its first contract with the Fédération française de Tennis, launching the Roland-Garros eSeries by BNP Paribas with 238k participants and 1.66M matches played. Tennis Clash and the Fédération Française de Tennis will work together to continue giving its players the finest tennis and esports experiences until 2025, building on the momentum from the previous year.
Aymeric Labaste, Head of Roland-Garros International Development said, “In 2022, collaboration with Wildlife Studios was essential to elevating our eTennis competition. Together, we gave the Tennis Clash community a memorable Roland-Garros experience, and the finest players were able to advance to our Grand Final“. He added, “We’ll advance much further in 2023, and I can’t wait to begin this next version!”
Experience the thrill of Grand Slam in the 2023 Roland-Garros eSeries by BNP Paribas
Fans from all over the world can experience the thrill of the Grand Slam in the 2023 Roland-Garros eSeries by BNP Paribas. Online qualifiers will be used for the tournament, allowing competitors from all around the world to participate. The top competitors from the qualifications will then have the opportunity to compete in the Grand Final. It will be held on May 26 at the renowned Roland-Garros site in Paris. Along with the coveted trophy, the tournament winner will also receive a monetary award of 5,000 EUR.
Dotan Arad, General Manager of Tennis Clash, said: “The expanded partnership with the Fédération Française de Tennis will deliver entertaining and user-friendly events with FFT to all participants, whether you are a gamer or a real-life tennis player. At Wildlife Studios, we aim to make Tennis Clash as authentic an experience as we can for our players, and we believe that this extended agreement will do that.”
This announcement of the collaboration follows a month-long partnership between the Tennis Clash and Tennis Australia in honor of the Australian Open. Tennis Clash is dedicated to providing its users with the most lifelike mobile tennis experience possible. The International Tennis Federation, USTA, ATP, WTA, and Tennis Australia are among the illustrious tennis associations with which Tennis Clash has formerly partnered.
