Logitech G Becomes Global Peripherals Provider to G2 Esports
Logitech G, the profound gaming division of the long-established hardware manufacturer, has just signed a global partnership deal with G2 Esports.
Under the contractual obligations, the rosters of all twelve games from the esports organization will from now on be attending tournaments with wireless peripherals from Logitech G. The marketing aspect also covers players when they decide to stream from their homes.
The deal sees the company expand its esports portfolio by partnering with one of the largest growing brands in the scene. Logitech G is also an official partner of Team SoloMid, Cloud9, NRG Esports, and Invictus Gaming.
“Our teams have been using, and winning, with Logitech G products for years,” G2 Esports CEO Carlos “Ocelote” Rodriguez said in a statement. “We’re excited about our partnership with Logitech because both organizations share a deep passion for the industry, a dedication to hard work and a commitment to winning.”
“G2 Esports is one of the most exciting teams in esports, and we love the fact that some of their pros have been using our wireless gear in competition,” Logitech G VP Ujesh Desai said in a statement. “We’re excited about this partnership and look forward to leveraging their expertise to develop even more wireless gaming gear for pros.”
The product lineup features the G603 wireless gaming mouse, G613 wireless mechanical gaming keyboard, and G933 wireless gaming headset. In addition to having access to the gear, players from G2 Esports will be giving their feedback to Logitech G on possible improvements to ensure quality and comfort.
G2 Esports was reportedly denied by Riot Games to join the franchised North American League Championship Series (NA LCS) next year. The five-man roster was also knocked out of the League of Legends World Championship (Worlds 2017) last month for the second year in a row.
