Newbee have taken over TongFu's Dota 2 operations in part of a partnership between the two Chinese companies.

According to a translation of a Newbee weibo post by Shrinkzxo on LiquidDota, TongFu Porridge will no longer control TongFu' Dota 2 teams, but Newbee will be sponsored by TongFu Porridge in the future. The biggest change that Newbee will be making for TongFu's teams will be their base of operations.

"With immediate effect, Newbee e-Sports Club has reached a Strategic Partnership with TongFu Porridge. TongFu Porridge will be a sponsor for Newbee in the future; the TongFu Dota Team will be run by Newbee(‘s management on Tongfu Porridge’s behalf)," the translation reads. "To perfect the team’s localisation and ladder teams’ nurturing, TongFu will be HQed in Anhui Province, to provide traineeships and participation in pro games for new players."

The announcement also lists the rosters for Newbee, Newbee.Young and TongFu's main team, which features the likes of Tan "JiaJia" Lijia and Yang "maomao" Shihao. All three lineups will remain the same as they were during the Boston Major roster lock.
