GiantX and KitKat Sign Deal
January is often a time of the year when organizations are looking for new sponsors ahead of the start of the majority of competitions. European esports organization GiantX is no exception to that rule, which is why it recently announced that it is extending its strategic partnership with Nestlé chocolate brand KitKat.
This means that KitKat keeps its position as one of the esports organization’s main sponsors and will work on activation and content creation with GiantX. Furthermore, the chocolate brand’s logo will be part of the jerseys of the organization’s players who play in League of Legends and Valorant.
As mentioned, the deal is an extension to an already existing partnership that started with Giants Gaming back in 2021. Giants Gaming is one of the two organizations that merged last year to become GiantX, the other one being EXCEL ESPORTS. The partnership with KitKat continued after the merger happened and was renewed on January 16.

The company provides data-analysis solutions to GiantX to help them evaluate the performance of its sponsors, including KitKat.
Although specific numbers about monetary matters have not been disclosed, the two organizations talked about their plans for the domestic Spanish market оf GiantX. According to them, the org will will work together on campaigns, creating new content and developing new content formats throughout 2024.
For KitKat, the deal with GiantX signifies the company’s continued interest in investing more in professional League of Legends.
