Portugese esports organisation K1ck eSports Club has announced its new technology partner in the form of Lenovo Legion.
Players that represent K1ck will receive computers and laptops from Lenovo Legion to practice and train on, and the two parties will attend future events together.
Pedro Fernandes, Director of K1ck discussed the partnership: “This partnership is very important for the K1ck, not only for the greatness of the Lenovo brand but also for the support and support that will provide us in the various projects that we intend to implement, so that together we can achieve the planned objectives.”
Most recently, Lenovo Legion entered a partnership with Norway-based organisation Nordavind. In May, the brand became the PC and monitor sponsor of Rainbow Six Siege esports through a year-long deal with Ubisoft.
Vasco Oliveira, Consumer Business Manager at Lenovo added: “ESports and Gaming continue to show fantastic growth year after year and captivate millions of fans and players in Portugal and the World. It is a sport with a passionate and united community but also very diverse and inclusive. Lenovo as a world leader in PC sales is committed to the players and their requirements by developing innovative products under the LEGION brand that provide differentiating and immersive experiences.
“K1ck, the most awarded eSports organization in Portugal and one of the oldest in Europe, are the ideal partner to get closer to the community of our country, understand their needs and continue to evolve in the development and launch of products and solutions that make gaming an increasingly incredible experience!”
K1ck is also partnered with CORSAIR, a major player in gaming peripherals including keyboards, mice, and headsets. It currently fields teams in League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, FIFA, Clash Royale, and Fortnite.
Esports Insider says: K1ck has been around for quite some time, so it’s good to see that it’s still able to secure healthy partnerships such as this one. Lenovo Legion is steadily increasing its footprint in the industry across different countries and regions, which seems like a clever move.
