With each race being broadcast live, worldwide on TV and online, the DCL is attracting a growing number of spectators and fans and followers.
IQONIQ is a social media and fan engagement platform focused on the world of sport, which also include the exciting fast growing e-sports sector, and entertainment. By combining the diverse desires of fans into one clear platform, IQONIQ will enable DCL fans to catch all the updates they want with an inside track, offering a range of benefits including games and prizes, a dedicated loyalty programme, exclusive content, and special offers for tickets and merchandise, and much more.
The partnership with DCL is the fourth major partnership announcement for IQONIQ, following on from comparable agreements made with AS Monaco, Olympique de Marseille and EuroLeague Basketball in the past weeks. The IQONIQ app is due to be launched for users in August, with pre-registration now available here.
