Technology solutions provider CDW has partnered with event organiser ELEAGUE and Psyonix‘s Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS).
The deal was launched in time for the eighth season of the RLCS and is set to continue into 2020.
CDW will equip the ELEAGUE studio and arena with PCs and accessories from Lenovo, acting as the official arena partner of both ELEAGUE and RLCS.
Seth Ladetsky, Senior Vice President at Turner Sports had this to say regarding the partnership: “Esports competitors need the latest technology to continue to excel and operate at their best, and CDW and Lenovo are uniquely positioned to provide that technology for them.
“CDW’s experience in providing technology solutions for businesses of all industries and sizes gives them the expertise needed to create high-performance esports environments. We are excited to partner with CDW and Lenovo to bring compelling esports stories to life for our growing fan base.”
The deal comes after ELEAGUE began broadcasting a six-episode documentary series that follows the most recent Rocket League World Championship on TBS.
Mark Chong, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Marketing at CDW added: “The world of esports is rapidly growing, and we are excited to formalize our partnership with ELEAGUE. Whether it’s a facility with five seats or 150 seats, CDW’s esports experts are passionate about designing, implementing and managing world-class arenas for our customers. We look forward to this year’s competition and are excited to collaborate with Lenovo and build the ultimate fan experience for ELEAGUE enthusiasts.”
CDW will be integrated across all of ELEAGUE’s broadcasts on TBS, Twitch, and ELEAGUE.com. CDW will be the presenting sponsor of the “Get IT Moment” where a particular highlight will be shown on a Lenovo tablet and analysed by ELEAGUE hosts.
Esports Insider says: ELEAGUE looks to becoming increasingly involved in Rocket League esports with this latest partnership. The new studio equipment will consolidate their ability to host events and create industry-leading content.
