The Cloud9 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive squad is teaming up with the US Air Force for a new sponsorship deal.

Cloud9, one of the top esports organizations in North America, has announced a new partnership with the United States Air Force and their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team, for content collaboration and sponsorship. The partnership will cover the upcoming ELEAGUE events, live event participations, and video and experiential access to situations only the Air Force can provide.

“Cloud9 is proud to create awareness of the Air Force for our amazing fan base,” said Jack Etienne, owner and CEO of Cloud9. “By developing a dynamic partnership with the Air Force, we will be able to deliver extraordinary content that will show fans a totally different side of the team. No one else in the world can put our team into a jet and let our fans watch the sheer thrill come over their faces. It’s going to be amazing.”

The first connection between these two partners will occur this week at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, Georgia, where the team will receive an inside look at the world of Explosive Ordnance Disposal Specialists.

“We are very excited to partner with Cloud9’s stellar CS: GO players, who display the same level of discipline, rigor and achievement that we value in our Airmen,” commented Maj. Ross McKnight, chief of the National Events Branch at the Air Force Recruiting Service Headquarters. “The partnership will provide an opportunity to create engaging and relevant content in the esports space and to show Cloud9 fans some of the ways in which they can make a difference in the U.S. Air Force.”
