Gaming chair brand Secretlab has partnered with OGN to provide 100 of its products ahead of the National PUBG League.
The OGN Super Arena is based in California and will be the home of the first North American PUBG league held by developer PUBG Corp.
Dennis Yi, Director of Business Development at OGN discussed the partnership: “OGN has built its reputation on quality, and we need to ensure that the partners we align with share the same goals and standards. So we turned to Secretlab because they are the go-to brand for high quality and performance gaming products. After trying out their chairs ourselves, we rest assured that all our new studio participants will be seated and competing in full comfort for all our upcoming championships.”
In October, it was announced that PUBG Corp. had partnered with OGN to launch the NPL. The league is part of the developer’s five-year esports plan, which aims to boost the Battle Royale title into the competitive realm in a meaningful way. Nine regions – including North American – are part of the first official PUBG esports season.
Ian Alexander Ang, Co-founder and CEO of Secretlab added: “I’ve been a fan of OGN ever since the Starcraft II GSL back in 2011. OGN was the first-mover in a new game like Starcraft II, and today, are still pioneering new trends in esports leagues and events, particularly with their new Battle Royale studio—the first such arena in North America. The standards they’ve set for the esports industry is incredibly high and we’re proud to be working alongside them; supporting tournaments and professional players at their new studio with our ultra-comfortable, award-winning chairs.”
Secretlab is already partnered with the likes of Cloud9, Team Secret, Tempo Storm, Newbee, AirAsia, and PGL.
Esports Insider says: The National PUBG League could well have a lot of eyes on it since it’s the first Battle Royale league to launch following the H1Z1 Pro League’s closure and OGN is well-respected in esports. With this in mind, it seems like a decent move for Secretlab to get its chairs in view once the league gets underway soon.
