CosmosDirekt, Germany’s leading online insurer and the direct insurer of Generali in Germany, becomes the new Enabling Partner of the esports player foundation.

The not-for-profit initiative was founded in January 2020 to specifically promote esports talents in Germany. Already today, eight employees as well as 30 coaches, psychologists and experts support more than 50 players in achieving success in sports, school and at work. Thanks to the commitment of CosmosDirekt and its partners Deutsche Kreditbank, Deutsche Telekom and Skillcourt, the esports player foundation will be able to accompany over 200 talents on their way to the top of the world by the end of 2021. Funding measures with a volume of around 1.3 million euros are available for this purpose. This was announced today at an online press conference.

Those who make it into the esports player foundation’s program will be determined in selection camps, among other things. The players are then supported with individual offers such as in-game coaching as well as nutritional advice, sports psychological counseling, fitness and media training and much more. Financial support is also guaranteed. An overview of all support components is available at
