The new CPL is here and it has announced its new partnerships. The CPL will be partnering with China’s Overseas Chinese Town, Chengdu Holdings (OCT) and Singapore’s International Digital Media (IDM)

Scott Valencia is the newly appointed CEO of the CPL Holdings Group, LLC.

Mr. Valencia had this to say:

We are excited to be in partnership with China’s OCT Chengdu and Singapore’s IDM on developing the esports industry in the growing market of Asia. The CPL has long been Asia’s esports brand of choice, and by having the first gaming community event in the City of Chengdu we get an opportunity to express our gratitude for their years of support.

The new headquarters for the CPL will be located in Chengdu, China, the home of Chinese eSports.

The first event will be taking place in September of this year, as part of OCT’s Chengdu City Summer Celebration. It is still unknown if the new CPL will be paying gamers who are owed money from the previous CPL.
