Supercell is famous for designing games such as Clash of Clans and Clash Royale. They organised an e-sports tournament in association with PSG last year. The French club also had players interacting with important characters of Supercell games with PSG players in a 3-D animation video.
The French club may come up with even more innovative methods in the esports arena with Supercell during the second year of their association. A team from Supercell also had the chance of meeting PSG coach Thomas Tuchel to exchange ideas about enhancing the performances of the team.
