Full Sail University has entered a multi-year clothing partnership with Orlando-based apparel company 3N2 Game Gear for its esports organisation, Full Sail Armada Esports.
Over the course of the deal, 3N2 will be the exclusive provider of jerseys, apparel, footwear, and accessories for Armada’s teams.
In addition to custom clothing and accessories, 3N2 Game Gear will provide Full Sail University’s students with research, internship, and post-graduate employment opportunities.
Sean Murphy, CEO of 3N2 Game Gear discussed the deal in a release: “With 3N2 Game Gear we were one of the first to commit and invest in custom gaming jerseys and apparel. I can’t think of a more fitting sponsorship opportunity than with a true esports pioneer like Full Sail. They are the model for what esports can be at the university level with the best venue in the country, if not the world. We couldn’t be happier.”
Full Sail Armada Esports competes in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Fortnite, Hearthstone, League of Legends, Overwatch, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Rocket League, SMITE, Super Smash Bros., Madden, and Dragon Ball FighterZ. It also has The Fortress, a gaming and broadcasting venue that’s located on the university campus.
Craig Daily, VP and Creative Director at Full Sail University added: “The team at 3N2 was exceptionally skilled at bringing the designs we created to life for both the Armada team and spectator jerseys. It’s an exciting time for our student esports athletes, fans and the community to rally in support of Armada. Knowing the gear is of exceptional quality, we look forward to seeing the jerseys created by 3N2 proudly worn during tournament play, on campus and across the country.”
Esports Insider says: While neither Armada or 3N2 are the biggest brands in esports, it’s massively important that collegiate esports is supported to enable a wave of educated, willing talent – both in and out of the server – to work in the industry post-education. This is a cool little deal and, to us, reaffirms Full Sail’s commitment to esports.
