US esports organisation, Echo Fox has announced OPSEAT as its official gaming chair partner.
The partnership is to provide high-quality chairs to training facilities for Echo Fox players. Seth Mattox, co-found of OPSEAT had this to say: “All of us at OPSEAT are incredibly honored to have the opportunity to support Echo Fox and all that the brand represents… With their success in 2018 across multiple titles and the legacy Rick Fox has brought to the industry, we are proud to support everything Echo Fox stands for in esports, including the dedicated and passionate community they have built over the years.”
Echo Fox most recently was in the new following a partnership with Fathead. These announcements come after they had announced organisational restructures to place the brand is a better position for the future. Alongside the OPSEAT announcement, Echo Fox announced a giveaway that gives their fanbase the opportunity to win a free chair.
“Our players have long been fans of OPSEAT’s commitment to creating the best gaming and lifestyle gear in the market,” said Jared Jeffries, President of Echo Fox. Echo Fox are best known currently for its League of Legends team which competes in the recently franchised North American League Championship Series (now just dubbed League Championship Series). They also house players across several fighting games, although the organisational restructure saw a chunk of players be released.
Esports Insider says: It’s safe to say that chair partnerships are very common across esports organisations now – and it’s clearly no different with Echo Fox. OPSEAT becomes the latest brand to get involved and the seats look pretty nifty too. It’s not been revealed as to whether the partnership entails more than occasional giveaways and Echo Fox players rocking the chair, so we’ll have to wait and see if there’s anything more to come.
