ExxonMobil and the Rocket League Championship Series look to build on their successes together and have renewed their sponsorship for Seasons 3 and 4 of the Rocket League Championship Series. 

According to Nathan Lindberg, Director of Global Esports Sponsorships at Twitch, the idea to keep Mobil 1 in the fold was very high up on the priority list. "Having a blue-chip brand like Mobil 1 involved in the Rocket League Championship Series is a huge priority this year." said Lindberg. "As the business of esports is still in its nascent stages, sponsorship renewals with non-endemic companies are still very rare. This makes the continued commitment from a marquee brand like Mobil 1 both an achievement and a noteworthy indication of where the industry is heading."

Mobil 1 directly implemented their brand within the Rocket League scene as the "Mobil 1 High Performance Replay" was immediately a fan favorite for viewers. 

Mobil 1 is very excited to stay in the world of esports. "We’re thrilled to be involved again with the Rocket League Championship Series," said Pablo Conrad, Global Brand Manager, Passenger Vehicle Lubricants at ExxonMobil. "Our team is always looking for innovative ways to make our brands more relevant to consumers, and this sponsorship achieves that goal. Offering a hybrid of high-octane motorsport and soccer, with an emphasis on car customization and performance, Rocket League is a perfect fit for Mobil 1."

The partnership between the two couldn't be more natural. Rocket League is a car game while Mobil 1 helps cars out in the real world. It's like a match made in heaven. Or in the auto-shop.
