Breitling will sponsor the role of Official Timekeeper of DCL “Breitling has a longstanding history in aviation, from its support of the Breitling Jet Team to its place of privilege on the wrists of countless civil pilots worldwide. The Drone Champions League marks an exciting new era in flight, and we are delighted to be taking to the skies with such an innovative and entrepreneurial team and support the exciting races all around the globe as official time keeper,” explains Georges Kern.

Herbert Weirather, founder of DCL, is also pleased about the cooperation: “The new partnership with a well-known sponsor like Breitling shows that DCL offers an attractive advertising environment. As a sponsor of DCL, you reach target groups in a way that is not possible with traditional advertising measures and also position yourself as a first mover in the sponsoring area of eSports.”

The race series will start at the Olympic Park in Munich, followed by further races in Madrid (4/5 July), at the Great Wall of China (9/10 August) and in Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland (11-13 October). All DCL races are broadcasted live on television both online and in over 100 countries worldwide.
