LGD Gaming, a Chinese esports organization, has revealed the end of its strategic partnership with French football club Paris-Saint Germain (PSG). The news, shared on Weibo, means LGD's Dota 2 team will now operate solely under the LGD Gaming banner for future events. The collaboration, lasting five years, had a significant impact on Dota 2 history. Competing as PSG.LGD, the team clinched the WePlay AniMajor in 2021 and took second place at The International 2021.

The announcement did not clarify why the partnership concluded so abruptly. LGD Gaming has its fingers in multiple gaming pies, fielding teams in titles like League of Legends, Arena of Valor, PUBG Mobile, Crossfire, and Clash Royale. It had previously managed teams in CS:GO and Overwatch, which disbanded in 2017 and 2019, respectively.

PSG, meanwhile, remains active in esports through similar strategic partnerships. The club competes in titles like League of Legends, FIFA, Brawl Stars, and Arena of Valor. Notably, PSG's League of Legends squad, PSG Talon, is set to compete in South Korea for the 2023 World Championship.
