Australian esports organisation Tainted Minds has entered a partnership with gaming headset and audio accessory brand Turtle Beach.
As part of this deal, players who compete for Tainted Minds will wear Turtle Beach’s Elite Pro range of audio equipment when training and competing.
Juergen Stark, CEO of Turtle Beach said the following in a statement: “This is a significant step as we continue growing our global esports presence by partnering with more top teams in key international markets, and we’re thrilled that prominent organizations like Tainted Minds continue to choose the Elite Pro. Tainted Minds are a force to be reckoned with, in Australia and increasingly around the world, and we’re happy to provide them with the best gaming audio gear available to help them build upon their successes.”
Tainted Minds currently competes in titles such as Call of Duty, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Fortnite, Rocket League, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and FIFA.
Nick Bobir, CEO of Tainted Minds added: “We’re extremely excited to be working alongside Turtle Beach, one of the most recognizable brands in the video game industry and a leader in performance-driven esports equipment.
Turtle Beach not only supports our professional teams and content creators but also shares our same level of passion for gaming and esports, we’re looking forward to working together through 2018 and beyond.”
The Australian organisation is also sponsored by the likes of Lenovo, ZOWIE, Scuf Gaming, and ZQ Racing. Recently the team also arranged a deal with Melbourne-based watch brand UNCLE JACK for some giveaways on social media, so we can likely expect more on this front in future.
Esports Insider says: Turtle Beach is a mainstay in competitive gaming and it’s good to see it support an Australian organisation – typically teams from that region don’t get the same kind of exposure and opportunities as popular North American sides, for example.
