PostFinance Helix

A valuable contribution to Swiss sport.

Esports is one of the world’s fastest growing boom sports and in the past few years has become a billion-dollar business. In 2018, around 215 million people watched Esports matches on various online channels or in huge sports arenas. The popularity of Esports is growing in Switzerland as well, and Swiss gamers are playing in wellattended halls to win competitions, gain recognition and win prize money.

By engaging in Esports, PostFinance aims to highlight its position as a digital innovation leader. And by creating an Esports development team, it wants to contribute to Switzerland’s diverse and lively sporting landscape.

Esports is still considered to be a niche sport in Switzerland and PostFinance has a long tradition of supporting such sports through funding. For more than 40 years, PostFinance has been supporting the Swiss Sport Foundation, which works closely with non-mainstream sports and is also particularly active in promoting young talent.
