Chinese video site, Bilibili is huge, and Riot has set it in its sights on it. According to @Slasher, Esports extraordinaire, Riot has signed a new 3 year deal, for 3 events, worth $113 million. That’s pretty bonkers, and as he rightly points out, it makes Overwatch and other competitors (such as Apex) look like the poor alternative.
We anticipate Riot to release an announcement soon! Slasher’s Tweet below.

Bilibili reportedly paid Riot $113M over 3 yrs for just three events and one region. makes Activision Blizzard’s OWL/ CDL Twitch/YouTube deals look like peanuts
