LOS ANGELES, CA – February 8, 2023 TSM, the premier championship esports organization, and Jersey Mike’s, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, have set a three-year, North American partnership, making Jersey Mike’s the official Sub Sandwich of TSM.

While the key ingredients of branding and content production are baked in to the partnership, this made-to-order deal brings TSM and Jersey Mike’s fans alike loads of meaty offerings, including:

  • A freshly-made fan sweepstakes offering the chance to win epic prizes
