Esports organization ESL Gaming has extended its partnership with 14 top Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams until 2025.

The Louvre Agreement, as it is known, sees all 15 members govern the ESL Pro League and was first formed in 2020.

The esports teams include Astralis, BIG, Complexity, Evil Geniuses, ENCE, FaZe Clan, Fnatic, Furia, G2 Esports, Mousesports, Natus Vincere, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Team Liquid, Team Vitality.

Ralf Reichert, co-chief executive at ESL Gaming, said: “Extending the Louvre Agreement is an incredible milestone for our partner teams and ESL.

“We are very excited to continue to build what we started and intensify our cooperation with the teams across our consumer-facing projects like our CS:GO platforms and other digital initiatives.

“As partners, the teams have brought the ESL Pro League to a whole new level, and having this agreement extended ensures a balanced governance and decision-making infrastructure for years to come.”

Last month, ESL Gaming extended its media rights agreement with Maincast, an esports solutions provider, until 2027.
