AOC introduces esports sponsorship program, partner up with G2 Esports

09 January 2018


Display specialist AOC has today officially introduced its global esports sponsorship program by partnering up with G2 Esports.

G2 has won 79 championships across multiple titles, and AOC says it is “readying itself to increase that number by providing the fastest gaming displays ever produced”.

Stefan Sommer, Director of Marketing & Business Europe at AOC, stated: “We are really thrilled about our partnership with G2 Esports. Working with top-notch esports teams inspires us in the way we think about product design and helps us identify which feature sets suit the respective genre or title best. G2 provides superb training facilities and excellent conditions for their players, and we’re looking forward to living up to those standards with our premium AGON series.”

G2 Founder and CEO Carlos ‘ocelote’ Rodriguez echoed Sommer’s statements: “Everyone in G2 Esports is beyond excited to team up with AOC. The involvement of professional players in developing the best gaming displays is essential and we are more than happy to lend our world-wide stars to assist AOC in achieving perfection… We have no doubt that this belief and determination to be the best will lead us to victories in 2018. Our squads are hungrier than ever and we are happy to have partners who believe in our ambition and are always willing to help us move forward.”

This partnership follows a lot of progress G2 has made in the last year; in November alone, G2 announced partnerships with both Logitech G and Fernando Alonso, as well as securing an investment from FC Barcelona midfielder André Gomes in March.

Rodriguez also mentions that he believes the AGON series displays will be “a crucial part of our optimal training environment”.

It appears G2 esports are not slowing down any time soon.

Esports Insider says: It’s good to see G2’s momentum isn’t slowing down following such an impressive year, but it also remains refreshing to see hardware companies such as AOC furthering its involvement in esports, especially with its “global esports sponsorship program”.
