STS, the largest bookmaking company in Poland, is launching a new marketing campaign entitled “Your world. Your win”. The campaign is the result of the introduction of new brand positioning in esports communication. The launch of the campaign coincides with the beginning of one of the largest CS:GO tournaments in the world – IEM Katowice 2021.
In its new campaign, STS combines the digital world of fans and influencers with the bookmaking world in which fans can make real profit thanks to their passion. – esports fans are very involved in their hobby. We reward this passion. We believe that the time spent on playing or following games translates into a capital of knowledge and experience. STS makes it possible to turn them into real profit – says Paweł Rabantek, marketing director at STS.
The first part of the campaign, prepared on the occasion of IEM Katowice, features world stars of esports, including Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas – the icon of Polish CS:Go, who has been on the gaming scene for over a decade. Another featured star is Henry “HenryG” Greer”, a former CS:GO commentator and at present – the manager of Cloud 9, one of the top organizations.
The main elements of the campaign include a dedicated offer for fans, broad online communication, also on social networking sites, and outdoor advertising, which is carried out in Katowice for a third consecutive year. The advertising consists of two large-format and one LED ad – all of them appearing in the very centre of the city. The capital of Upper Silesia hosts one of the biggest esports events in the world – IEM Katowice 2021 (Intel Extreme Masters), which is why this location was chosen.
– as the leader in the Polish bookmaking market, STS has been investing heavily in esports for years. By launching the campaign during the IEM we can show how important the event is to Polish fans and the brand itself. We wanted to make sure that we could feel the atmosphere of esports in Katowice, even though the tournament is held without audience – says Paweł Rabantek.
Supporting esports for many years
STS has been investing in the development and professionalization of Polish esports for a long time. The bookmaker has been a sponsor for, among others, Paweł “innocent” Mocek – a CS:GO player who played for the most popular Polish and foreign teams. This is the first time that a bookmaking company supports an individual Counter-Strike player. The company also decided to work with Damian “Nervarien” Ziaja who is one of the most popular influencers in the Polish League of Legends community. In recent seasons, STS provided support for the Nine to Five tournament, the Polish Esports League – which are among the leading CS:GO competitions in Poland – as well as eSports teams Izako Boars,devils.one, AVEZ Esport and x-kom AGO. The company also joined in the initiative of staging a charity match played by the top Polish CS:GO teams.
