Ski Challenge, the fast-paced esports game from Greentube, has become one of the most popular sports games just a few months after its official launch.

For the second season, the developers of NOVOMATIC Digital Gaming & Entertainment Division, in close cooperation with ski associations and co-shareholders from Austria (ÖSV), Switzerland (Swiss-Ski) and Germany (DSV), plan an attractive innovation for all ski and game enthusiasts: the Nations Cup, starting in Autumn 2023.

Ski Challenge has had an extremely successful first season with over half a million downloads on iOS and Android since its October 2022 release. The game is not only popular among players but has also established itself as an attractive platform for high-profile brand partnerships.

Thanks to the continuous and extensive updates that enhance the competitive nature of Ski Challenge, Greentube and the three successful ski associations, ÖSV, Swiss-Ski and DSV, have now joined forces as shareholders to create this exciting new Ski Challenge Nations Cup tournament series.

Players are invited to represent their country and compete for honour, glory and attractive prizes in multiple qualifying rounds and the tournament phase. But that is not all. Ski Challenge players who qualify for Germany, Austria and Switzerland will now compete as the official national teams of their respective ski associations.

The Ski Challenge tournament events will take place parallel to actual Ski World Cup events and with this expansion, Ski Challenge aims to further strengthen its esports concept and transfer the enthusiasm of skiing into the virtual world.

Michael Bauer, Greentube’s CFO/CGO, says: “We are thrilled to be able to add a number of new teams to the game as part of our Ski Challenge Nations Cup update. These federations are staples of the sport and give the game another level of legitimacy.

“We firmly believe our highly dedicated and loyal player base will be delighted with these upcoming additions as Ski Challenge continues to grow as a premier esports title.”

Diego Züger, CEO Commercial Swiss-Ski, adds: “This is a great opportunity for skiing. With the establishment of the Nations Cup and the entry into esports, we will inspire new target groups and further develop skiing as a whole.

“The successful cooperation with Ski Austria and the German Ski Association, as well as Greentube, shows that a lot is possible with good collaboration.”

Stefan Schwarzbach, Board of Communication, German Ski Association, says: “With the Nations Cup, we as associations want to establish a direct connection to real skiing and our top athletes. Ski Challenge is increasingly becoming an attractive communication platform to inspire children and young people for skiing”

Christian Scherer, Secretary General, Austrian Ski Association, says: “We are incredibly excited to launch a virtual tournament series that will revolutionise the world of skiing and bring nations together. This initiative expands the reach and ignites the competitive spirit of skiers worldwide.

“It is undoubtedly one of the most exciting announcements of 2023 as we embark on this exciting journey to shape the future of skiing and create an unforgettable experience for all involved.”
