A new team and supplier partnership has been struck in esports which sees Turtle Beach becoming the Official Audio Partner of VFL Wolfsburg.
The terms of the agreement will see Wolfsburg’s FIFA trio players equipped with the Turtle Beach Elite Pro headset. It will also see a new gaming zone at the Volkswagen Arena which will give fans the opportunity to try out games for themselves and give Turtle Beach’s gear a go too.
Julian Woods, Managing Director for Turtle Beach Europe stated: “As the leading gaming headset brand in the world we have passionate fans in Germany and have been impressed with Wolfsburg’s involvement in esports, so we felt it was the perfect time to begin working together.
“The ELITE PRO is the only gaming headset built from the ground-up for today’s generation of competitive gamers, so we look forward to providing the best gaming audio experience to VfL Wolfsburg’s pro players, as well as to their fans.”
Steffen Grupp, Head of Sponsoring and Events at VfL Wolfsburg commented: “We’re pleased to have Turtle Beach as our new headset partner for our esports team. We know that many of our supporters play video games, and as a club we’ve shown our first mover position in competitive gaming and further digital innovations in football. Together with Turtle Beach we can be at the forefront of esports competition.”
Esports Insider says: This deal will be good exposure for Turtle Beach to FIFA fans and it’s a solid idea to include a section at the Volkswagen Arena on matchdays. We are however still waiting on Vfl Wolfsburg to embrace more titles than just FIFA…
