eSports are huge, and only getting bigger. This news doesn’t come as a shock, but it does come with the excitement of every gamer and game maker who knew that games were more than a niche market. It’s proof that video games are a growing industry, taking over the world.
This year alone, Overwatch League officially launched and League of Legends has reached several entertainment markets. KSV eSports, the owners of the Overwatch League team Seoul Dynasty and League of Legends World Champions team joins Team Razer.
KSV eSports, the global eSports organization and an industry leader, continues to lead the eSports industry with a major partnership with Razer in one of the most important eSports sponsorships to date. Razer joined KSV with a 2-year sponsorship for both of their eSports teams.
Razer will be providing the eSports athletes with top of the line competition-quality mice, keyboards, headsets and surfaces. Seoul Dynasty, the star-studded OWL team that features world-renowned players such as Ryujehong and Fleta, will be training and competing with Razer™ products immediately.
“Helping ambitious organizations and players reach the next level has been a matter of the heart for Razer since the very early days of professional esports,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “The passion and dedication to building a long-term, winning organization of players makes a two-year deal with KSV eSports and Seoul Dynasty an easy decision.”
The sponsorship will include KSV eSports’ current and future roster of elite teams, pairing professional tournament-grade equipment with the fingertips of dominant players competing in games such as League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds; and who have demonstrated a record of achievement and elegance through multiple world championship victories, including the 2017 League of Legends World Championship (formerly SSG), and the 2017 Heroes of the Storm BlizzCon Championship (formerly MVP Black).
“KSV eSports teams and players are among the most talented and professional the industry has to offer,” said Kevin Chou, CEO and co-founder of KSV eSports. “Partnering with Razer ensures our athletes have access to the highest-quality peripherals to continue the organization’s success for now and into the future.”
