HyperX has been announced as the official sponsor for Season 7 and 8 of the Esports Championship Series (ECS).
The Esports Championship Series is FACEIT’s premier CS: GO tournament with its Season 6 Finals being the most watched CS:GO livestream ever broadcast on YouTube with 3.2 million hours watched.
Season 7 is currently in full swing with defending champions Astralis, and Rogue already securing their spot at the final. The ECS Season 7 Finals are set to take place at the SSE Arena in Wembley, London on the 8th – 9th June 2019. The world’s best CS:GO teams will compete for the ECS Season 7 title, and the lion’s share of the $500,000 prize pool.
“HyperX is excited about sponsoring Season 7 and 8 of the Esports Championship Series (ECS),” Stephanie Winkler strategic marketing HyperX, commented, “Fans of ECS are always enthusiastic and passionate about their gaming and the gear they use. HyperX appreciates this passion and provides them with the best gaming accessories for the final stage of a tournament and everyday gaming.”
Having previously sponsored the FACEIT London Major, HyperX will once again provide official keyboards, mice, mouse pads, DRAM and SSD for the tournament. The partnership will also include a special HyperX segment at the end of each game called “XFactor Play of the Game”, where ECS broadcast talent will discuss the best play of the match.
Michele Attisani, Chief Business Officer and Co-Founder of FACEIT, said, “We’re delighted to partner with HyperX once again. The team shares the same passion we do for developing the esports scene from the community and grassroots upwards. We’re always looking for ways to organically introduce our partners into the broadcast and we’re excited to work with HyperX to produce a brand new show that complements our efforts to create content that is engaging and entertaining.”
Esports Insider says: HyperX continue to flex with another big sponsorship. We look forward to seeing the content that emerges from the partnership and how the “XFactor Play of the Game” is done. It’s interesting to see that HyperX are providing mice and keyboard given teams individual peripheral sponsorships and preference on different mouse brands and so on so forth.
