Just one day after the NBA 2K League announced HyperX as the league headset sponsor, it also penned a deal with controller company, Scuf Gaming.
Scuf will premiere as the exclusive NBA 2K League controller for all league games this season and in the years to come as this was announced as a multiyear partnership. 17 teams will compete in this inaugural season with a tipoff tournament starting today, live from New York City.
“NBA 2K encompasses everything we love about gaming: it’s fun, fast, and it rewards real skill. It’s a franchise that is destined to become a standard-bearer of professional gaming.” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Founder of Scuf Gaming. “Like a good pair of sneakers on the court, a Scuf is an extension of the player, allowing for a better controller experience through customization, comfort, performance and design.”
Scuf already holds major sponsorships in a list of top-tier esports organisations in console gaming such as Optic Gaming, FaZe Clan, and Soar Gaming.
The NBA 2K League inaugural season tips off today with a tournament lasting the next five days in New York City. The regular season will begin May 11 with weekly matches up until the season finale in August.
Esports Insider says: Another smart sponsorship coming into the NBA 2K League. Scuf provides some of the highest quality controllers and as the competition begins precision in the game will be everything.
